4 African Footballers Who Set World Records

1. Roger Milla

It’s not easy to score a goal at the age of 42, and it’s even more difficult to do so in a World Cup tournament.

Roger Milla, 42, is the world’s oldest goal scorer, having scored Cameroon’s solitary goal in a 6-1 defeat to Russia in the 1994 World Cup.

2. Jay-Jay Okocha

Okocha was named to the starting lineup in the round of 16 encounter between Italy and Nigeria in USA ’94, after starting off the bench in the group stage games.

In that game, the Nigerian completed 15 dribbles, which is a world cup record.

3. Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane astonished football fans when he scored a hat trick for Southampton in only two minutes and 56 seconds against Aston Villa.
