The previous record holder was Asmir Begovic's mere 91.9m effort for Stoke City against Southampton in 2014.

 


European Super League Ban Threat

FIFA and it's six continental confederations have stated that any player competing in a European Super League will be banned from all international competitions. A FIFA statement read: "In light of recent media speculation about the creation of a closed European 'Super League' by some European clubs, Fifa and the six confederations (AFC, CAF, Concacaf, Conmebol, OFC and Uefa) once again would like to reiterate and strongly emphasise that such a competition would not be recognised by either Fifa or the respective confederation. Any club or player involved in such a competition would as a consequence not be allowed to participate in any competition organised by Fifa or their respective confederation."
