RIP Papa Diop

The sadness of 2020 continues, also in the football world. At only 46 the Senegalese legend Papa Bouba Diop has just passed away. He is remembered for scoring Senegal's winning goal in the opening match of the 2002 World Cup, when the African debutantes sensationally defeated the French world champions, and leading Senegal to the World Cup quarterfinals. In Europe he had a long career that took him to Greece, Switzerland, France, and the English Premier League.
