Takumi Minamino reveals his Guinness World Record after saving Reds' Carabao Cup semi-final bid


Liverpool beat Leicester City to reach the Carabao Cup Semi-final thanks to a late goal from Takumi Minamino to send tie to a penalty shootout

Takumi Minamino has explained how he once was in possession of a Guinness World Record.

The Liverpool forward was in the spotlight on Wednesday evening as the reds faced Leicester City in the Carabao Cup.

With the game at 3-2, the Japan international popped up and scored an equaliser for Liverpool to send the quarter-final to penalties.

Minamino missed his spot-kick in the shootout, but Liverpool still managed to win and progress to the semi-final.

Speaking on Liverpoolfc.com , Minamino has explained how he once became a Guinness World record holder.

While with Japanese club Cerezo Osaka in 2014, Minamino was tasked with breaking a world record.

"Yes, I held the record for the most high-fives in a minute, but I think it has been broken,” said Minamino.

"It happened when I played for Cerezo Osaka and it was an event organised by the club for people living in the area, in the town.

"About 200 people queued up in a line in a shopping centre and as I was the youngest player in the team I was chosen to join them.

"I had to run down the line and high-five them and I managed to make the Guinness World Records.

"It is a very good memory and we still talk about it. Maybe it would be good fun if I celebrated a goal for Liverpool like this!"
