Canadian Atiba Hutchinson becomes oldest World Cup outfield player

Canadian football legend, international since 2003, Atiba Hutchinson holds this Wednesday, for the entry into the running of the Canucks at the World Cup, against Belgium (8 p.m.).

The Besiktas player (92 caps, 9 goals) thus becomes the oldest outfield player in the history of the World Cup, at 39 years, 9 months and 15 days. He thus beats the record of the Argentinian Angel Labruna (39 years, 9 months, 18 days) dating from 1958.

Cameroonian Roger Milla was over 42 when he took part in the 1994 World Cup, but had not started a game.
