Czechoslovakia 1921 goalkeeper Jaroslav Chana might be a unique national team player as he lived in three centuries. He was born on 19-12-1899 and died on 26-09-2000. So he lived 100 years and 262 days. Does anyone know other NT players who lived at least 100 years?

and Sir Stanley Matthews, Bill Meredith, Roger Milla..........

But let's go back to the core of this topic. Full international players who lived at least 100 years. Becoming full international player is something exceptional and reaching the age of 100 years still is as well.

And if Jaroslav Chana (still) is the only one, he is a very unique person. From all Netherlands NT players Chris Walder (08-05-1900 - 06-12-1997) lived longest so far: 97 years and 212 days.

Lucien Laurent, who was in 1930 the first goal scorer in a world cup, was born 10th december 1907 and died the 11th april 2005. There are perhaps other players in France who lived a bit longer but I remember him because I've watched an interview where he was relating the France NT travel to Uruguay in 1930.

So he reached the very respactable age of 97 years and 123 days. But still not another NT player who celebrated his 100th birthday. Nevertheless a person who scored the first World Cup goal ever and reached such a respectable age is quite unique as well.

I didn't find any French NT player who lived as long as Lucien Laurent. Maybe someone who played for French team before 1930 reached that respectable age too...

This one is about Emile Monkou. The article says he is both former Surinam NT player and coach. He is born 21 January 1906 and died on or some days before 26 November 2007 at the age of 101 years and 310+ days.

So, the provisional rangking is:
1. Emile Monkou -> Suriname -> 101 years and 310+ days
2. Jaroslav Chana -> Czechoslovakia -> 100 years and 262 days
3. Achilleas Grammatikopoulos -> Greece -> 100 years and 93 days

He's not 100 years already, but he will be 5 February 2010. Francisco Varallo is the last survivor of the 1930 World Cup final match. He played for Argentina against Uruguay. He has an impressive career as well.

Rodrigo García Vizoso (26/02/1909 - 02/06/2009)

He was the last player live who played at 1928-1929 season (the first football professional season in Spain)

He played at Deportivo de La Coruña (1927-1934), Real Madrid (1934-1935) and Granada (1935-1936)

To be considered with caution :

I don't have his exact birth and death date but it seems that former French defender Alfred Gindrat was born in 1884 and died in 1999. So he might have lived about 115 years.

To be considered with caution indeed. I only could find Alfred Gindrat, who played for France in 1911-1912, was born in 1884. Not when he died. But if he died in 1999 he must have lived 114 or 115 years, which means he probably must have been the oldest man and even oldest person on earth for a while.

The provisional rangking is:
1. range">Maxime Lehmann (France) -> 17-12-1906 - 24-04-2009 -> 102 years and 128 days
2. range">Emile Monkou (Suriname) -> 21-06-1906 - at or some days before 26-11-2007 -> 101 years and 310+ days
3. range">Jaroslav Chana (Czechoslovakia) -> 19-12-1899 - 26-09-2000 -> 100 years and 262 days
4. range">Achilleas Grammatikopoulos (Greece) -> 28-09-1908 - 30-12-2008 -> 100 years and 93 days

Found some info about Georges Géronimi who played for France in 1911 and died in 1994 at the age of 101 years. So far, he is the first NT player ever that reached the age of 100 years.http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_G%C3%A9ronimi
Fernand Jacard who played in both Swiss 1934 World Cup matches lived for 100½ years
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernand_Jaccard

Following site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_centenarians_(sportspeople) show all sportspeople who lived at least one hundred years. Amongst them is one of the Adrianopoulos brothers (Leonidas) who played for Greece who lived from 10-08-1911 to 25-10-2011 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonidas_Andrianopoulos. It is very remarkable he was Greek NT and Olympiakos team mate of Achilleas Grammatikopoulos who also reached the age of 100 years.

Ivo Pavelic, who was a Croat, lived from 10-02-1908 to 22-02-2011 and played five times for Yugoslavia. He also represented his country at the 1924 Olympica as swimmer and represented his country in tennis http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivo_Paveli%C4%87

1. Ivo Pavelic (Yugoslavia) -> 10-02-1908 – 22-02-2011 -> 103 years and 12 days
2. Maxime Lehmann (France) -> 17-12-1906 - 24-04-2009 -> 102 years and 128 days
3. Emile Monkou (Suriname) -> 21-06-1906 - at or some days before 26-11-2007 -> 101 years and 310+ days
4. Georges Géronimi (France) -> 16-06-1892 - 06-03-1994 -> 101 years and 263 days
5. Jaroslav Chana (Czechoslovakia) -> 19-12-1899 - 26-09-2000 -> 100 years and 262 days
6. Francisco Varallo (Argentina) -> 05-02-1910 - 30-08-2010 -> 100 years and 206 days
7. Fernand Jaccard (Switzerland) -> 08-10-1907 - 15-04-2008 -> 100 years and 189 days
8. Achilleas Grammatikopoulos (Greece) -> 28-09-1908 - 30-12-2008 -> 100 years and 93 days
9. Leonidas Andrianopoulos (Greece) -> 11-08-1911 - 25-10-2011 -> 100 years and 75 days

Two Austrian players who appeared for the Austrian Wunderteam (1931-1934) are reporting as still living but already celebrated their 100th birthday:
Anton Brosenbauer is born 11-04-1909 http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_Brosenbauer
Friedrich Franzl is born 06-03-1905 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friederich_Franzl

Five other Austrian players were born before 1912 but their date of death is reported unknown. It does not appear realistic all these players have reached the age of 100 years:
Franz Cisar is born 28-11-1908 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Cisar
Leopold Czejka was born 14-11-1903 http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopold_Czejka
Karl Stoiber was born 13-10-1907 http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Stoiber
Gustav Thaler was born 21-11-1909 http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustav_Thaler
Hans Walzhofer was born 23-03-1906 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Walzhofer
