World Cup 2014: Mondragon breaks Milla's oldest player record

David Beckham's first World Cup goal came when he beat Mondragon in a game against Colombia in 1998.

Colombia goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon became the oldest player in Fifa World Cup history after appearing in a 4-1 win over Japan aged 43.

Mondragon celebrated his birthday three days before the match and came on for David Ospina after 86 minutes with his side 3-1 up.

It was his first competitive appearance for his country since 2005.

Cameroon's Roger Milla was the previous oldest player at a World Cup, appearing at the 1994 tournament aged 42.
