Picture : Bolivian Pablo Escobar leads the list !

Oldest pokers in XXI Century

Couple of days ago Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 4 goals in the Saudi Arabia league game Al Nassr vs Al Wehda at the age of 38 years 4 days. 
It is one of the «oldest» pokers in world top tier football in XXI century. More precisely, his feat takes 7th position in the ranking of its kind.
The table lists cases in which a player has scored 4 goals in a single match after turning 35.

*It is quite remarkable that the entire podium is occupied by the Bolivians, and one of them, Pablo Escobar, grabs two first places at once!

*Escobar scored two pokers in his home league shortly before his 40th birthday, doing it with just 11-day margin!

*There are other old players who managed to make 2 pokers almost in a row: Serbian Dragan Cheran fit his couple in 20 days, Estonian Maxim Gruznov in 45 days. 

*In the case of Gruznov, it was not even two pokers, but two penta-tricks!

*Gruznov has a total of 3 super-scoring matches (all three times he netted 5); the same number as also naturalized Singaporean Alexander Đurić has (three times with 4 goals).

*Two "old" pokers, in addition to the aforementioned Escobar and Ćeran, were also achieved by Romário and Roque Santa Cruz.
