Sweden's Tore Keller is the oldest player to have scored a FIFA World Cup™ hat-trick at the age of 33. The striker netted his record-breaking treble in an 8-0 victory over Cuba at the Stade du Fort Carre in Antibes, France in 1938.

Keller, who also competed at the 1934 FIFA World Cup in Italy but failed to score, does not hold the record for the oldest FIFA World Cup scorer, though, as that honour belongs to Cameroon's Roger Milla, who found the net at the age of 42 and 39 days against Russia in 1994.
