After 5 months, I received an answer (in Russian...) from the club he now plays for (FK Khujand). His exact date of birth is 08/03/1976, so Alisher Tuychiev (Tajikistan goalkeeper) played at the age of 40y 16d during the game Australia 7-0 Tajikistan from 24/03/2016.

Essam El-Hadary has carried Egypt into the AFCON final (or alternatively, Burkina Faso were cruising in the pens until the Burkina keeper Koffi and then Bertrand Traoré bottled it).

Can anyone find the birthdate (or approximate age) of Osman Jan, who captained Pakistan in their first match vs Iran in October 1950 ? He was a goalkeeper for Mohammedan Sporting of Calcutta in the 1930s and had played in Delhi before that, so I'm estimating his age as a minimum of 35 or more. He could appear in the oldest debutants list.

I had a similar idea myself a couple of years ago. They could arrange a Japan-England friendly with a special cameo appearance, respectively, for Kazu Miura and for Paul Gascoigne, as "Gazza" celebrates his 50th birthday this May.
Or, alternatively, I propose a Japan-Italy friendly where I'll win my very first appearance for the Italian national team. After all, if Andrea Ranocchia has already won 21 caps, anyone can appear at international level...

You obviously don't know Joël Veltman, who is an expert in passing the ball to opponents, who needs to make fouls to stop an opponent and who gives his opponent all the freedom he wishes.

Football is strange and full of paradoxes: he won more caps than Theo Laseroms and Joop van Daele put together. I didn't see them play, but I presume Laseroms and Van Daele were much stronger, as they were part of the Feyenoord defence that won some of the most important international titles in the 1970s.

Hmm, it sounds like he has all the "qualities" to fit into Scotland's back four.  If he is also slower than Riquelme on mushrooms, then he will definitely have a long career in the navy blue jersey.

... and Scotland, in their roaring years, always afforded not to select John McGovern, the famous captain of Nottingham Forest European champion in 1978/79 and in 1979/80, who had also won the English title in 1971/72 with Derby County and in 1977/78 with Forest. Strangely, he never won any caps with the national team. If he had played in the 2010s, he would have been a first-choice player and captain of the national team. Times have changed.

Here are the details for those that collect such things ;-)

Thanks. Dominica's captain, "Euclid", is almost surely Euclid Bertrand, born on 23-07-1974. So this means he was 42y, 298d when he played for his national team last week!

Yes and he has played since at least 1998 for Dominica, probably earlier.
