This is one record you would probably expect either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi to own.

But this special one belongs to Japanese footballer named Masashi Nakayama, who scored 16 goals in four successive matches. They did all occur in the J1 League, but it’s still an impressive record.

Nakayama reached this feat from April 15 to 21 in 1998 with Japanese club J├║bilo Iwata.
