Lookman held up his Senegal jersey when he scored for Fulham today.

Whenever I think of great fairytales in World Cup history and what usually comes to my mind is SENEGAL’s 2002 World Cup team. That team was loaded with very good disciplined individual players. All 20 outfield players selected by Bruno Metsu were based in France, with only the two back-up goalkeepers playing elsewhere.

I can never forget the win against the defending champion (France). Especially when Bouba Diop ripped off his shirt and began one of the iconic World Cup celebrations, as the whole team joined him at the corner flag to dance around the sacred jersey. Rest in peace big man. They were the first team in World Cup history to be eliminated using the fair play rule after being tied with Japan on the first six tiebreakers.

Talking about African World Cup teams, the Morocco’s 1986 World Cup team’s campaign remained etched in my memory. In my opinion, Morocco’s 1986 World Cup team’s campaign changed African football forever. The first African team to qualify to the second round. The world did not believe the absolute destruction of Portugal by Morocco. Aziz Bouderbala was a delight to watch. I thought that I was watching a Brazilian team playing. That team was loaded as well - Zaki, Mohamed Timoumi – aka ‘Maghrebi Platini’, etc. Unfortunately, Morocco faced the later finalists of West Germany in the last-16, and lost 1-0 on a late goal by Lothar Matthäus.
