6- Most goals scored in a single game: oleg Salenko, the Russian forward in 1994 scored five goals against Cameroon in the United States. They were worth nothing, but there was the record for the story.
7- Youngest in a match: 17 years and 42 Northern Norman Whiteside had days when he debuted in Spain 1982. Pelé also had 17 years when he played his first World Cup. Cameroonian Fabrice Olinga will be the youngest player in this edition, with that yes, 19 years already served.
8- Older in a game: Brazil 2014 set a new record for longevity. Faryd Mondragón, played a few minutes with 43 years and three days against Japan. In this way, the Colombian became the oldest player to play in a World Cup.
