16 June 1982 was a great moment for the African game.
In front of 25,000 fans at the El Molinon stadium in Gijon, Algeria's Desert Warriors turned football on its head, defeating West Germany 2-1.
It was a win that was not in the tournament's script.
Ali Ferghani was the captain of that Algerian World Cup team which included Rabah Madjer, Lakhdar Belloumi, Salah Assad and Djamel Menad.
"We played a different type of football, which had never been seen before," Ferghani told BBC Sport Online.
"It was a concoction of German, French and Latin styles."
Rabah Madjer, who scored the first goal against the Germans, said team unity was the major factor behind their historic win.
"We were a solid group that had been together since 1979," Madjer recalled.
The West Germans had little regard for the skills of the North Africans.
The 1980 European champions had Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, goalkeeper Toni Schumacher, Paul Breitner and Pierre Littbarski in their impressive line-up.
