The Cameroon national team arrived at the 1990 World Cup in Italy with the role of ideal victim. However, they defeated in the opening match the world champions, none other than Diego Maradona’s Argentina in what was probably the biggest surprise in the history of the World Cup so far. That was just the first step in an adventure that was forever etched in the minds of fans around the world. Led by the Soviet Valery Nepomnyashchiy, players such as Thomas N’kono, brothers Omam-Biyick and Kana-Biyick, Stephen Tataw, Thomas Libih and veteran Roger Milla earned the respect and admiration of the soccer world in one of the most beautiful feats in the history of the World Cup. Green Lions’ is a documentary produced by DAZN that tells the true story of that unrepeatable team.
