World record success after 60 hour football match

IMAGINE playing an entire Premier League campaign’s worth of football matches back to back, and then playing on for three more hours.
Two teams of 18 footballers from Loughborough did just that to smash the Guinness World Record for the longest football match ever played , completing a 60 hour goalfest last weekend in aid of Breast Cancer Campaign.
The game kicked off at Loughborough University at 9am on Friday, October 22, and when the final whistle blew at 9pm on the Sunday, The Pink Panthers had won beating the Black Eagles 756 to 746.
Organiser Ricardo Braganza, 21, said: “My team mates and I can’t believe we’re world record breakers, it’s such an amazing achievement for us.”
