World Cup moments: Five for Salenko

BBC Sport counts down 100 of the greatest World Cup moments, as the 2014 tournament in Brazil draws nearer.

Today looks back to 1994 in the USA, when Russia striker Oleg Salenko made history against Cameroon by becoming the first - and still only - player to score five goals in a World Cup match.

Salenko went on to claim the Golden Boot with six goals alongside Bulgaria's Hristo Stoichkov, becoming the only player to do so from a team eliminated from the tournament in the first round.
