    Part 11 of 13 - Africa

    This episode looks at the growth of football in Africa. It covers how the game was first introduced and the changes it has undergone over the years. It looks at the North African Cup which began in the ‘40s, the politics of the region and their effect on the game and the exclusion of South Africa due to apartheid. It looks at many
    stars from Africa including the 1990 World Cup hero Roger Milla, who got Cameroon to the quarter finals only to lose to a very good English side led by Paul “Gazza”
    Gascoyne. The Confederation of African Football (CAF) is also covered in great detail.
