Mwepu Ilunga is a former football defender from Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) and member in the first black African team at the World Cup. They lost their first game against Scotland 2-0, the second 9-0 against Yugoslavia and third game against Brazil 3-0 in group matches during 1974 FIFA World Cup in West Germany.
He became famous during the third match when there was a free-kick for Brazil. Ilunga, upon hearing the referee blow his whistle, ran out of the Zaire wall and booted the ball upfield. The referee gave him a yellow card. Surprisingly, Ilunga disagrees with this decision.
