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.

To the uploader,

I can't thank you enough for uploading these videos. By far the best football documentaries ever made. I saw them on TV some years ago and have been looking for them since. The Africa documentary is one of my favourite, reminding me of my days playing in Uganda and also gives a great insight why an African team is so far away from winning a World Cup. I also enjoy 'The Dark Side' documentary. Very touching and reminds you that football is in reality only a game. Such good documentarie. Where did you get them from?
