The FIFA Museum acquired the shirt of Comoros defender Chaker Alhadhur from the round of 16 match against hosts Cameroon at the African Cup of Nations in January where he found himself in the position of goalkeeper.
The story of Comoros at the Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 would make a decent fairy tale. The small nation, currently ranked 128th place on the FIFA world ranking, qualified for the tournament for the first time. Their debut included beating four-time champions Ghana in the group stage, knocking the star-studded team out and securing Comoros a historic place in the knockouts. In the biggest game in their history, Comoros faced off against hosts and tournament favourites Cameroon. And at this game, the story would take a dramatic turn.
