Zidane equals record of goals scored in World Cup finals
font size    

Zinedine Zidane's successful seventh minute penalty for France against Italy on Sunday meant he became the fourth player to score three goals in the history of the World Cup final.

Geoff Hurst scored three goals in England's 4-2 win over West Germany in 1966 and is the only man to score a hat-trick in the final.

Pele scored three times in two finals with two goals in Brazil's 5-2 win over Sweden in 1958 and one in the 4-1 victory over Italy in 1970, while Vava also scored twice for Brazil in their 1958 win and another against Czechoslovakia in a 3-1 victory in 1962.

West Germany's Paul Breitner is the only other player to have scored in two finals with a goal in their 2-1 victory over Netherlands in 1974 and another in the 3-1 defeat by Italy in 1982.
