38 – Sergei Ignashevich (38 years, 335 days) is the oldest outfield player to feature in a World Cup match since Roger Milla in 1994. Seasoned.

You can only marvel at the sheer awfulness of defending which managed to be an own goal and would’ve been a penalty if not. Hats off Sergei Ignashevich. #SPARUS

Remembering that Sergei Ignashevich scored during Porto’s UCL final victory 14 years ago makes me feel old

You’ve got to feel for #SergeiIgnashevich, After all but amputating Spanish star #SergioRamos, the Russian defender chipped in an own-goal with his heel as he pile-drove Ramos into the turf. In the @CopaMundiaI. That mistake may haunt him for the next few decades.#Goooooal! pic.twitter.com/wqeP0rubjn

Artem Dzyuba’s game-tying penalty was his third goal of this World Cup, tying him with Denis Cheryshev for the team lead.
This is the second time that 2 Russians have scored 3 goals at the same World Cup (1966 – Valeriy Porkuyan 4, Eduard Malofeyev 3) pic.twitter.com/eYzhAjsVMK
