When Africa boycotted the World Cup

The 1966 World Cup is the only World Cup in history to have been boycotted by a continental federation.

But it is better known for England’s victory, a controversial goal in the final and the glorious displays of both Eusebio and North Korea.

BBC Focus on Africa presenter Piers Edwards travelled to Accra, Cairo and Paris to tell the story of a little-known boycott that changed the World Cup forever.
