75-year old set to become oldest football player as he gets signed by Egyptian club


A 75-year old is in line to become the oldest footballer to play in an official game.

Izz al-Din Bahader has signed a contract with an Egyptian third division side and will become a world-record holder if he takes to the field in two competitive games to break the current record.

Judging by his ability and fitness level already displayed, he looks well-equipped for the challenge.

Despite being a pensioner, he looks incredibly sharp.

The current holder of the record is Itzhak Hayk, who was two weeks away from turning 74 at the time.

Hayk, Iraqi-born but made in Israel after moving in 1950, played in between the sticks in the fifth tier of Israeli football against Ramat Israel in a game his side lost 4-1.
