I hope CE's rich knowledge of the UK, especially England, will have an answer. :)

EDIT: The results should be between Africa team and England or the UK Olympic team.

Games against Scotland, Wales, N. Ireland do not count.

Not sure about a Great Britain team.

Well for as long as I been in the UK I don't know of any though I could be wrong and if its happened I bet it was a friendly :D I hate England thoroughly but I know they will thrash African teams with ease :taunt:

This is why Cameroon 1990 is greatest African team ever when you consider how they went out and that they beat Argentina who were serving world champions and Cameroon actually TOPPED group B going into the next round. In quarter finals if Oman biyik hadn't tried a cheeky backheel rather than simple turn and shoot they would beaten England or if the ref hadn't robbed them with phantom penalties England were beat :curse:

Break the quarterfinals, you mean progress from the quarter finals? No African team has ever progressed from the quarter finals. So why did you put since Cameroun 90? You for don put since 5000 BC since it has never happened.

Now, if you meant, reach the quarter finals of the WC, Senegal in 2002 and Ghana in 2010 have done it.

African teams are too naive, yes I said it, too forking naive, to beat England. When we stop playing secondary school soccer, we will beat everybody well well, including England, Argentina, Italy, Germany and Brazil.

It used to annoy me when tv commentators said it but its true oh. I bet when playing against african teams coaches tell their wards even if the africans go 2- nkl up keep playing as normal because they will make a mistake and sure enough

1990 was the first time an African side reached the quarters and the accurate reference point. No African side has broken/progressed since then. There is nothing with his post.

I meant England or the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The UK used to field a team in the Olympics.
Then why are you intentionally going off topic?

Did I not cover all their games against Uk opposition and made it clear that the Republic Ireland are not members of the Uk but are a nation on the British Isles so I mentioned them after all their best players ever played in England.

My fault! I should have been more clear in the OP.

As always, what the thread poster (starter) said or wanted is different from what many people answered or provided in response. I see why people FAIL exams. Even after being given "proper" instructions, people still went "out of point" in their answers :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

An African team has never beaten England because despite all the noise we make here they are a pretty decent and consistent team. If they were in Africa they would have won the AFCON 10 times.

The question was wrong from the very start "England or the Uk" no clear specification was made for a clear answer as there is no uk football team (GB Olympic team would be precise),so the question should had been on African teams beating England or/and any other Uk national team,you see no exam board in an organised part of the world would put out such a question as the answers would vary way too much right or wrong!

No argument from me on that one. England effortlessly took Egypt apart 3-1 in Wembley just after Egypt had laid waste to Africa to win their 7th AFCON, crushing Cameroon, Nigeria and CIV on the way there.

The African game is fundamentally weak, or weak on fundamentals. That has gotta change, or we just have to be content with 1st and 2nd round exits at the WC.

True African football hasn't improved much since the 90s even for the continents so called better teams!

What rounds do England make their exit at WC?

Funny thread...how many games between England & African teams?

But African teams have defeated teams with higher ranking than England at given periods...

These teams beaten by African teams were definitely better than England at the times they were beaten:
Poland WC78 (England did not even qualify)
Germany WC82
Bulgaria WC94 (England did not even qualify)

WC94: I am 100% convinced Nigeria would have beaten England; had England qualified, and been in the same group...
WC2010: 50% probability Ghana would have beaten England if both teams had clashed in that tournament...

I agree that when England was weaker they didn't meet any African opposition but in comparison Cameroons Italia 90 squad was better than England and still lost despite out playing England who where not at their best according to earlier expectation,England where playing a Cameroon side that beat the reigning world champions Argentina and beat that years Afcon finalists Nigeria to qualify so it still balances out that African teams find England hard to beat!
