    The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) signed the world’s oldest professional player on Tuesday. Ezzeldin Bahader, 75, is set to enter Guinness World Records as the oldest footballer in the world after playing a match with 6th of October club, according to CNN.

    Back in December, Egyptian singer, Tamer Hosny broke the Guinness World Record for most contributions to a bulletin board, during a ceremony that took place in Abu Dhabi, UAE. More recently, Egypt attempted to break the Guinness World Record for largest coffee cup mosaic of Tutankhamun using 7,260 cups.

    Bahader’s entry is the first Guinness attempt that we have heard of in 2020 so far, but Egypt is undoubtedly on a roll! We wish him the best of luck on his upcoming match.
