At 43 years old, Colombian goalkeeper Faryd MondragÃ³n became the oldest player to ever play in aÂ World CupÂ when heÂ enteredÂ Colombia'sÂ match against Japan on Tuesday in the 85th minute with his team securely ahead 3-1.
In what would become a 4-1 win, he broke the record set byCameroon'sÂ Roger Milla at the 1994 World Cup in the United States.
MondragÃ³n was an unused sub at the 1994 World Cup, but played in all three group stage matches for Colombia in 1998. WhenÂ Los CafeterosÂ qualified for World Cup in 2014 for the first time in 16 years, MondragÃ³n was named as one of the team's goalkeepers.
He returned to Deportivo Cali in 2012.
