Angola 1-1 Botswana (Angola win 5-3 on pens)

The Unofficial Football World Champions are Angola! How on Earth did that happen? This Southern African country is better known for its long-running civil war than for its footballing prowess, and the national side are certainly the most unlikely champions in UFWC history. Angola’s ‘star’ player is João Pereira of Boavista in Portugal. Who? Well, exactly, but Angola are here on merit having beaten Nigeria 1-0 in a World Cup Qualifier. Hail the underdogs.
