Cameroonian star Roger Miller is a true legend in football. Not only was he the key player in ensuring Cameroon made it to the quarterfinals of the 1990 World Cup he was one of the first to dance. Milla was one of the first people to celebrate a goal in style in 1990 when he ran up to the corner flag and did a jig. After that footballers from around the world came up with creative ways to celebrate their goals.

The moment was so iconic the 2010 Coca-Cola campaign was focused on celebrating the Roger Milla dance.
