With the final set of Russia 2018 qualifiers and play-off matches about to take place, we are presenting a new series looking back at memorable moments and note-worthy players of previous world cups.
The Milla Makossa
Roger Miller retired from international football in 1987. However, he received pleas to come out of retirement to represent Cameroon in the Italia 90 World Cup, at the age of 38. He did and went on to attain legendary status. Miller scored 4 times for Cameroun en-route the quarter-finals, the first time an African team had ever gotten that far. He also helped set up the two goals Cameroon scored in the quarter-final against England before suffering elimination.
His corner flag dancing celebration became as iconic as his performance at that World Cup. He later broke his own record as the oldest man to score in a world cup by netting against Russia in USA 94 at the ripe old age of 42.
A true World Cup Wonder.
