Papa Bouba Diop (born 28 January 1978 in Dakarmarker) is a Senegalesemarker footballer, who currently plays for the Senegal national football team, and for Portsmouth. He transferred to Portsmouth from Fulham on transfer deadline day, 31 August 2007. His preferred position is centre midfield but can also play right midfield. His nickname is The Wardrobe, given to him by the fans at Fulham, because of his enormous frame. He is perhaps most well-known for scoring the first goal of 2002 FIFA World Cup against France, which resulted in the 1–0 defeat of the then reigning World champions and ultimately, their early elimination from the tournament, in which Senegal reached the quarter-finals. He ended the tournament with three goals, having also scored twice against Uruguay.

He came on as a substitute as Portsmouth won the 2008 FA Cup Final. He has signed a new contract to stay at the club until 2011.
