Hungary faced Austria today in their opening match of Euro 2016 and former Crystal Palace keeper Gabor Kiraly was the main talking point on social media.

The 40-year-old Hungarian stopper broke Lothar Matthaus’s long-standing record as the oldest player to feature in a European Championship.

Kiraly was wearing his trademark grey tracksuit bottoms, which make him look like anything but a professional goalkeeper.

Interestingly, the former Premier League keeper made his international debut 18 years ago against Austria but today is his first ever game in a major tournament.

Despite his advanced age, he made some fine saves (which resulted in muddy trouser bottoms) in a first half which ended 0-0.

German legend Lothar Matthaus congratulated the veteran goalkeeper on his new record on Twitter. See some of the best tweets on Gabor Kiraly below.
