Alright folks, let's have a quick history lesson on soccer, or football as our friends across the pond call it. Buckle up, we're traveling back to 1978! That was the year when the first African soccer player scored in a World Cup. His name, drum roll please, was...Segun Odegbami! He hailed from Nigeria, and boy, did he make his continent proud. So there you have it, a little soccer trivia to impress your friends with. Isn't history a hoot?
