Match ends, Cyprus 1, Bulgaria 1.
Georgi Petkov became the oldest goalkeeper to play for a European team in an international as Bulgaria played out a Nations League draw with Cyprus.
Petkov played the full 90 minutes at the age of 42 years, eight months and two days - nine years after his previous cap for the national side.
Earlier this season, the Slavia Sofia keeper became the oldest player to appear in Bulgaria's top flight.
Bulgaria scored a last-minute equaliser to end Cyprus' hopes of promotion.
Debutant Panagiotis Zachariou looked to have kept Cyprus in contention but Nikolay Dimitrov rescued a precious point from the penalty spot for Bulgaria, who will battle it out with Norway for promotion.
"I take it as something normal," said Petkov. "This is not something to be astonished with. I have said before that I am always ready to help Bulgaria."
Giorgos Koudas is the oldest player to have represented a European nation - playing for Greece at the age of 48 in 1995. He was recalled 13 years after his last cap for a farewell appearance.
The oldest player to play for England was Stanley Matthews, who represented the Three Lions at the age of 42 years and 103 days against Denmark in 1957.
