Pele did it at the age of 17 in 1958, sparking a period of dominance as Brazil won three World Cups in a 12-year period, culminating in a one-sided final victory over Italy in 1970. Pouring Rain, no umbrella and Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic hugs every single player from Croatia and France, even if Croatia has just lost.
She was forced to miss the team's semi-final win over Gareth Southgate's England side to attend a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.
Croatia were doubly frustrated by Pitana's decision as France's opener also came from a dubious free-kick.
Grabar Kitarovic, clad in a red-and white Croatia soccer shirt, stood on the podium with Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron when the medals were given to the players.
Putin revealed the data at a meeting dedicated to the security of the World Cup.
Grabar-Kitarovic had already made headlines throughout the tournament as she enthusiastically celebrated each time her countrymen won a match.
Earlier noisy fans awaited their side's appearance by singing a popular song "Play on my Croatia, when I see you my heart is on fire!" while watching the plane carrying the team progress to the capital on a giant TV screen.
"During the period of the World Cup, nearly 25 million cyber-attacks and other criminal acts on the information structures in Russian Federation, linked in one way or another to the World Cup, were neutralised", Putin said during a meeting on Sunday with security services. "We are a bit sad but we have to be proud as well for what we've done", he said.
"We're on top of the world".
Grabar-Kitarovic is fluent in Croatian, English, Spanish and Portuguese, while she has some understanding of German, French and Italian.
