Watch: Claudio Pizarro's historic goal

Claudio Pizarro became the oldest player to score a Bundesliga goal when he equalized for Werder Bremen in a 1-1 tie at Hertha Berlin in the sixth minute of stoppage time. The 40-year-old Peruvian's 195th Bundesliga goal also made him the first player to score Bundesliga goals in 21 different calendar years. Pizarro, at the age of 40 years and 136 days, broke the mark set by Werder Bremen's Mirko Votava (40 years and 121 days) in 1996. Pizarro is also the Bundesliga's all-time leading foreign scorer, ahead of Bayern Munich's Polish striker Robert Lewandowski  (193 goals).

    Nice story! Just a bit lucky to have the goal stand as the attacker in the wall pushed two defenders. Ref could not see this from his angle.

    Also, looked like an own goal.
