Uganda Cranes defender Bevis Mugabi has broken Cristiano Ronaldo’s jump record according to his Scottish club MOTHERWELL. Mugabi’s winning goal against Ross County on Wednesday night involved a leap so impressive that it puts even Cristiano Ronaldo to shame, tweeted Motherwell.
Mugabi rose highest to put Jake Carroll’s delivery to the back of the net and Motherwell are now claiming that the defender jumped even higher than Ronaldo did for his famous goal against Sampdoria for Juventus in December 2019.
On that occasion, the Portuguese superstar jumped 71cm off the ground, with his head connecting with the ball at 256cm. According to Motherwell, though, Mugabi’s leap against County was 75cm, with the 25-year-old connecting with the ball 262cm in the air.
