Inspired by Roger Milla – Cameroon – World Cup Heroes – Wall Art Print
Italia ’90 was special. For many of us it was the first World Cup we can remember, and nobody epitomised it more than Roger Milla.
The glorious Italian scenery coupled with the beautiful weather. A time before football was corrupted by the Premier League-era money. Germany being two countries. Baggy kits. Football was very much a different game in 1990.
For a lot of English people, the 1990 World Cup will be remembered for Gazza being a legend and the heartbreak of losing on penalties to West Germany in the semi-finals. The Irish had a brilliant tournament and got to the quarter finals. Even Scotland were there (but we don’t talk about that).
The opening game of the tournament pitted minnows Cameroon, in only their second tournament appearance, against two-time champions and current holders, Diego Armando Maradona’s Argentina, at the San Siro. Cameroon, inspired by 38-year old Roger Milla, ran out 1-0 winners. Wow! In their next match, against Romania, Milla came off the bench in the 58th minute smashed in two goals and one of the most recognised and copied goal celebrations that football has ever seen was born. I mean, be honest, who hasn’t danced with the corner flag? I said be honest.
Cameroon got knocked out in the quarter finals by England, and Milla finished the tournament with 4 goals and was given a place in the All-Star team of the tournament.
Inspiration. Class. Defying the odds. Trailblazer. Cool dancing. This is why Roger Milla is a legend and truly belongs in MaadWeb’s ‘World Cup Hero’ collection.
