JUNE 24, 2019: An historic day in African football as Mauritania make their debut in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Despite being the 11th largest sovereign state on the continent of Africa, the North-Western country have barely been a feature of international football, ranked as low as 206th in the FIFA rankings just seven years ago.

But their first competitive contest outside of Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and friendlies resulted in a 4-1 drubbing by Mali, incidentally the only game Mauritania lost during the competition.

After racing into a 2-0 lead, Adama Traore netted a third for neighbouring Mali in the 55th minute before being substituted six minutes later.

Mauritania netted a consolation from the penalty spot before Mali sealed the points in the 73rd minute. The goalscorer? Adama Traore, who had replaced Adama Traore just 12 minutes earlier.

And neither have played for Wolves.

June 5, 1995; Bamako. Adama Traore is born.
