My Toughest Opponent - Delron Buckley

Delron Buckley played with and against some of Europe's top players during a 17-year professional career in Europe, but there is one World Cup winner who stood out above the rest.

Buckley always had the upmost faith in his abilities, but admits that during the 2000 Nelson Mandela Challenge against France, he met his match against one of the most decorated defenders in world football.

Watch below as the former Borussia Dortmund winger describes having the "shit kicked out of me" in the goalless draw against the then world champions.
