Just 26 days after turning 16, US citizen Casey Phair set a record for being the Women’s World Cup’s youngest player ever.

The talented attacker represented South Korea and came on as a substitute in the 78th minute of the match in Sydney, despite the team ultimately losing to Colombia 2-0. Ifeanyi Chiejine of Nigeria, who was 16 years and 34 days old in 1999 when the Women’s World Cup took place, had previously held the record, but Phair’s feat surpassed it.

Casey Phair: Who is he?

South Korean Association football player Casey Yu-Jin Phair was born on June 29, 2007, and he currently resides in the United States. She is the first player of mixed racial descent to be selected for the South Korean women’s national team.

When she entered South Korea’s game against Colombia in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup on July 25, 2023, at the age of 16 years and 26 days, she made history as the youngest player to play in the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Her parents, an American mother, and a South Korean father, both reside in South Korea. Her family moved to the United States when she was a month old. She resides in Warren Township, New Jersey, where she attends the Players Development Academy (PDA) for training and plays soccer for the Pingry School.

Prior to being called up to the senior team for the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2023, Phair played for South Korea’s under-17 squad. She helped the under-17 team qualify for the 2024 AFC U-17 Women’s Asian Cup by scoring three goals against Hong Kong and two goals against Tajikistan’s women’s national under-17 football team.

When Phair entered as a substitute in South Korea’s opening game against Colombia at the age of 16 years and 26 days, she made history at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The honor was already held by Ifeanyi Chiejine.
