@ESPNFC Bruce Grobeller from Zimbabwe playing for Liverpool is the first African keeper to play in a UCL final
It’s a colonial legacy. Africans of European origin were classified as European and blacks were classified as Africans and it seems this is still a de facto reality. (Elon Musk is an African)
Mendy is the first African goalkeeper to play in the rebranded European Cup Final because, that’s what the Champions league is. The Jungleman Bruce Grobbelar is the first, plus he won it too.
