When Roger Milla scored against Russia in 1994 at the age of 42 years and 39 days, he became the oldest goalscorer in the history of the FIFA World Cup™.

Sadly for the Idomitable Lions legend, this was not the only statistic to emerge from a match the Russians won 6-1, with Oleg Salenko scoring a record five times.

While Milla is the World Cup’s oldest scorer, Pele is its youngest, having found the net against Wales at Sweden 1958 at just 17 years and 239 days old.
