In men's football, an analogous case almost occurred on 24-Apr-1996 when Iceland's Arnór Guðjohnsen (aged 34) was substituted by his son Eiður Smári Guðjohnsen (aged 17) in a match vs Estonia; however, the two men never played together simultaneously on the field for their national team. ++ Thornborough was aged between 39y 203d and 41y 201d. ^ Rolls probably holds the all-time record for the longest wait between successive caps. When she played on 1-Mar-2012 (0-0 vs South Africa), it was her first international match since 7-Nov-1996 (1-1 vs Papua New Guinea). In the intervening 15-year hiatus, she played over 100 cricket matches for her country. Unconfirmed last appearance: Svetlana Novikova Belarus 40-41y 20-Oct-1970 2008-2012* * Novikova was a member of the national squad in 2012, but it is unclear when she last played in an official match.
