Top 15 Soccer Feats That Will Never Be Repeated

Records are there to be broken, or so the saying goes, but for some this is not quite the case. In basketball, no-one will ever surpass Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game. In cricket, Sir Don Bradman's batting average of 99.4 will never be beaten. In baseball, Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hit streak will stand forever as the longest in history.

Sport is often adored for its unpredictability, and football is no different, so some might take issue with claiming any feat, record or achievement will 'never be beaten'. Yet some accomplishments and feats are simply too remarkable, too incredible and too improbable that one can say with some confidence that they are unlikely to ever be beaten.

This list includes some well-known achievements within the world of football and some slightly less-known feats which are equally as astounding. It features both individual and team feats, as well as one set by neither a team nor an individual. If any of these feats are repeated or exceeded it will take an awe-inspiring effort by someone or team to have done so, and they are welcome to call me a fool for dismissing the potential of such an eventuality occurring. Here are the top 15 soccer feats which will never be repeated:

1 Real Madrid - 5 Straight European Cup Wins

via uefa.com

When the European Cup first began in the 1950s, one team was entirely dominant, and that team was Real Madrid. In the Champions League era, no team has managed back-to-back competition wins. You have to go back to AC Milan more than a quarter of a century ago for the last team to win consecutive European Cups. Barcelona have a chance to achieve that feat this season, and a creditable one it will be too. However, between 1955 and 1960, Real Madrid won an incredible 5 straight European Cups. Given the fierce competition in the tournament today, it would be virtually impossible for a team to repeat that feat.
