That run included wins over Argentina, Romania, and Colombia, as Cameroon became the first African side to reach the last eight.

Four years later in the United States, it was not such a fairytale as they were knocked out in the first round, including a 6-1 thrashing by Russia.

Tataw’s club career saw him play for Cameroonian sides Tonnerre Yaounde and Olympic Mvolye.
