Essam El-Hadary made his Egypt debut in 1996, and just became the oldest player to ever see the field in a World Cup match at the ripe age of 45 years old.
My man Essam is a complete animal ladies and gentlemen. If I look half as good as this dude when I'm 45 I'll be a lucky man. This guy started playing in the World Cup in 1996 - that was over 20 years ago which mean he's probably run at least 10 million miles so far in life. Crazy. Been hooked on soccer since the WC and all these guys do is run. I get tired just watching them. Anyway, kudos to Mr. El-Hadary, he's a legend in my book.
