Ecuador striker Enner Valencia scored the sixth goal in a row for his national team in the final stages of the world championships. At the 2022 World Cup, the 33-year-old Fenerbahce striker scored twice against Qatar (2:0) and scored against the Netherlands (1:1). And at the 2014 World Cup, which was held in Brazil, Valencia also scored three goals – two to Honduras and one to Switzerland.
Thus, Valencia became the fourth player to score 6 goals in a row for his team. Previously, Eusebio (Portugal, 1966 World Cup), Paolo Rossi (Italy, 1982 World Cup) and Oleg Salenko (Russia, 1994 World Cup) managed to do this.
