Cameroon have a rich and storied past when it comes to frankly peerless football kits, with both sleeveless and "unitard" efforts being gleefully foisted upon us within living memory.

While altogether more conventional in terms of its basic layout, the Indomitable Lions' latest strip, revealed by Puma today, is once again a thing of vivacious beauty.

Roger Milla might feel vindicated

Cameroon loses to Japan, 0-1. Samuel Eto'o was unable to score.

Which should put Roger Milla's observation that Eto'o does not perform as well for his country as he does for his club in perspective. Milla was the force behind Cameroon's most successful 1990 World Cup campaign. From what we saw of Cameroon today that still might be the case.

When nostaligists think of Cameroon they think of one man, Roger Milla. One of the few bright sparks of the Italia 90 tournament (unless you are a German of course) is the flamboyance of the veteran striker's goal celebration that remain a staple of any highlight reel about Cameroon's World Cup exploits.

African Football burst onto the world scene in the summer of 1990. Just months after the world applauded Nelson Mandela's release from prison after 27 years, the Indomitable Lions would give the world a view into the future of African Football. The irony is that it was a 38 year old whose best years as a footballer appeared to be in a rear view mirror.

Holland have built a reputation as a consistently entertaining side that threatens but ultimately falls short of final victory.

In case you missed the so-called "Decision Day" of MLS games this past weekend, a player named Kei Kamara scored a goal. All agree twas a nice goal of the finest variety, one worthy of celebration. Of course, players have shown emotion and excitement after the scoring of a goal for time eternal. And since Roger Milla danced for Cameroon in the World Cup, the rhythmic movement of one's body has long been part and parcel of said celebrations.

I don't know about you but i sometimes question the moral standing of Africa's so called stars. May be Milla crossed the line but hey, being La Liga top scorer on more than one occasion and not replicating that with your country is bound to raise some eyebrows.

Holding the much fancied Uruguayan side to a 1-1 draw and with 119 minutes on the clock, Ghana were handed a lifeline when Luis Suarez deliberately handled what would have been one of the most important goals in World Cup history.

Ya está en marcha la Copa Africana de naciones, rompiendo como siempre el calendario ya que realizarla en enero no es el mayor beneficio para los clubes que al fin y al cabo son los dueños de las cartas de los jugadores. Bastantes de ellos en Europa, aunque en esta edición el número es menor por algunos países que clasificaron por sorpresa y tienen menos futbolistas en el viejo continente o ninguno como Sudán, porque sino el número de 184 jugadores que se desempeñan ahí y jugarán ésta edición hubiera aumentado con Nigeria, Sudáfrica, Togo, Camerún o Argelia presentes.

Este ponta-de-lança africano fez delirar o público do Campeonato do Mundo de 1990 quando, com 38 anos, festejou os seus quatro golos de forma peculiar, dançando junto da bandeirola de canto. Para além de terem sido essenciais na ida dos Camarões aos quartos-de-final, os golos de Albert Roger Mooh Miller fizeram com que fosse o primeiro a ser considerado por duas vezes Jogador Africano do Ano (já o tinha sido em 1976).

Leonardo from RB Salzburg scored a wonderful solo goal vs. FK Senica. Honestly, I know non of them, but the goal is very nice to watch

Another great solo by the Brazilian Fernandinho who plays for Shakhtar

One more wonderful solo by Brad Rusin, and American defender who plays for a Danish Club (HB Køge)

Very nice goal from Paraguay by Dos Santos, definitely, not the famous one, but a very skillful goal

Finally, Ronaldinho scored a 'foxy' goal that reminds us so much by the 1990 Roger Milla goal vs.

Some big stars keep playing till their impact on the game fades away slowly overtime. Maradona, Romario, Bebeto, Peter Shilton are some examples. I remember Lothar Matthaus in an interview stating that one of the mistakes he did in his career was to play too late for the national side, especially the Euro 2000 when Germany had paled appearance and linked to his name.

In the old times, goal celebrations were very boring natural and didn't have any art in them.

Well, even scoring a decisive goal in the WC final, the guy was running out of any ideas, that was Alessandro Altobelli in 1982.

But they're really part of a larger trend, in that no single superstar has yet emerged to dominate this tournament in the way that Ronaldo (the original Ronaldo) did in 1998 and 2002, or do something to be talked about for generations, as Roger Milla did in 1990.
