Stephen Tataw, 57, was the captain of the Indomitable Lions who reached the quarter-finals of the 1990 World Cup in Italy.
The Cameroonian Federation announced the death of Stephen Tataw at the age of 57 from an illness.
The former right-back was the captain of one of the most significant Cameroonian selections in history. It was indeed he who lifted the African Cup of Nations in 1988 and, above all, he was the one who wore the armband when the Indomitable Lions seduced the whole world by reaching the quarter-finals of the World Cup, in 1990 in Italy.
Cameroon had become the first African nation to achieve this performance after having notably beaten Argentina, reigning world champion, in the opening match. He had accumulated 43 caps with Cameroon between 1988 and 1994. He had spent most of his club career in Cameroon, before ending it in Japan. source: https: //www.lequipe.fr/Football/Actualites/Stephen-tataw-l-ancien-capitaine-du-cameroun-est-mort/1157110
