Incredible Record: Meet the 73 year old Player Still in Active Professional Football

The saying that football age has a limit is only a word for the weak.So far as you can feel better within yourself nothing is impossible for you in this life.

Isaak Hayik, 73, is the oldest player currently playing a professional football.

Isaak Hayik set the record by playing as a goalkeeper for Israeli team Ironi Or Yehuda.

He received the Guinness World Records prize at a ceremony after the match, just days ahead of his 74th birthday.

Ironi Or Yehuda play in Liga Bet South A, in the fourth tier of the Israeli league.

Although his team were beaten 5-1 by Maccabi Ramat Gan, Iraqi-born Hayik is said to have made a series of impressive saves during the game.

"This is not only a source of pride for me but also to Israeli sports in general," Hayik told Reuters news agency.

One of his sons, 36-year-old Moshe Hayik, described his father's achievement as "unbelievable".
