Following his remarkable exploits in international football, the World soccer ruling body has decided to honour the Indomitable Lions of Cameron Legend Roger Milla.
Milla achieved international stardom at 38 years old by scoring four goals at the 1990 FIFA World Cup and thus becoming the oldest goalscorer in World Cup history.
He helped Cameroon become the first African team to reach the World Cup quarter-finals.
Four years later, at the age of 42, Milla broke his record as the oldest goalscorer in World Cup by scoring against Russia in the 1994 FIFA World Cup.
He was honoured on Thursday just before Cameroon confronted Switzerland in their opening group match.
Former African champions ended up losing the game by a lone goal with the goal from Cameroonian-born Embree Embolo.
