Stoke keeper Begovic lands world record
Stoke City's goalkeeper Asmir Begovic has a world record to his name for the longest goal scored.
This came when he scored against Southampton last season.
The Bosnian scored after just 12 seconds during the English Premier League clash on Nov 2 with a thumping clearance from his own penalty area.
Assisted by the wind, the ball travelled the length of the pitch and bounced between Saints defenders Dejan Lovren and Jose Fonte before flying over a stranded Artur Boruc into goal.
While Southampton later went on to claim a 1-1 draw, the goal - which measured a whopping 91.9m - has earned Begovic an entry in the Guinness World Records book for the longest goal scored in football.
Speaking to Stoke's official website, Begovic, who received a certificate to verify his achievement, said: "I feel amazing to be honoured in this way and as a goalkeeper I didn't expect this to happen, not for this type of record anyway - I will take it though and enjoy it.
"I really do appreciate this award, and the certificate will certainly take pride of place on the wall at home."
