HAVANA TIMES — Cuba has little to celebrate in its national soccer team’s international competitions eliminated early on for the 2018 World Cup.

However, on October 15, 2016, at the Habana Libre Hotel, Erich Hernandez Sanchez, a world record holder in soccer ball control, broke his own best mark in heading from a sitting position for 40 minutes 2:26 seconds.

This world record is pending classification into the Guinness record.
