Ronaldo Celebrates; Roger Milla Honoured

On a day when Cristiano Ronaldo made history by becoming the first footballer to score goals in five World Cups and also become the second oldest man to score a goal at the biggest sporting spectacle on the planet, FIFA honoured the oldest soccer player to score a goal at a World Cup.

GenZers may not have been born when Roger Milla, then 38, scored a goal to take Cameroon into the quarter-final of the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

Four years later, Milla, then 42, scored a goal against Russia during the 1994 World Cup in the USA, making him the oldest man to do so in a World Cup.
