A different star - the Justin Fashanu story E-mail
Written by IWEDI OJINMAH   
To say that Justin Fashanu was as enigmatic off the field as he was talented on it, is arguably one of the understatements of the century. In his short turbulent life he was a mirror of complexity riding the crest of success as the UK's first black player to earn a million pounds; to the low ignominy of being investigated as a possible paedophile in the US. Sandwiched in between these two extremes  he always made us sit on the edge of our seats while sadly confusing us finally in death.

But we are getting ahead of ourselves here. Let us start at the very beginning.
Angola set to name new technical team next week E-mail
Written by Sylvester Awenlimobor   
Reports indicate that the new coaching crew of the Angolan Senior National team, the Palancas Negras would be announced to the public next week. This was revealed by the Secretary-General of the Angolan Football Federation (FAF) August Silva “Alvarito” in an interview with the Angolan Press Agency (ANGOP). Alvarito disclosed that the Soccer Federation was seriously taking its time in carefully selecting a new coach for the Palancas Negras. He however refused to divulge any information on the candidates the Federation is speaking with at present. The position of head coach in the team became vacant after the resignation of Oliveira Goncalves. Goncalves was responsible for making the team a force to reckon with on the continent after he took them to the 2006 World Cup in Germany at the expense of the much fancied Super Eagles of Nigeria. He however quit the team after failing to repeat the same feat this time around, crashing out in the second round of qualifiers. Former Assistant team coach of the team, Mabi de Almeida is presently the caretaker coach of the team, and feelers from the soccer house in Luanda are that he could be reinstated as head coach of the team. Angola are the host of the 2010 African Cup of Nations, and would also be in the qualifying race for the newly introduced African Nations Championship tournament.

Ghana, Cameroon in tough group for 2010 World Cup E-mail
Written by Sylvester Awenlimobor   
The draws for the final stage of qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup/African Cup of Nations is out and the Black Stars of Ghana are in arguably the toughest group of the draws, and would have to stay strong to return to the World Cup finals after making their debut in Germany two years ago. The Ghanaian team was pooled in group D of the pools along side fellow West African teams, the Squirrel of Benin and the Eagles of Mali. The Ghanaians would also have to make the tricky trip to Khartoum to face the Nile crocodiles of Sudan. Number one ranked African team according to World Soccer governing body, FIFA, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are drawn in group A along with 2006 finalists the Hawks of Togo. The other teams in the group are the Atlas Lions of Morocco and Gabon. Group B would see the Super Eagles of Nigeria, who finished the last round with a 100% record, hope to continue the impressive run when the final round kicks off. They would however have to contend against the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, the Harambee stars of Kenya and Mozambique. Reigning African Champions, the Pharaohs of Egypt are drawn in group C alongside the Chipolopolo of Zambia, the Wasps of Rwanda and the Desert Warrior of Algeria. The group looks relatively easy on paper for the Pharaohs, but on the field of play, it is entirely a different ball game entirely. The Egyptians would be hoping to make their first appearance at the Mundial soccer fiesta, and this seems their easiest opportunity to achieve that. The final group of the World Cup will see the Elephant of Cote d’Ivoire square up against the Syli Stars of Guinea, the Stallions of Burkina Faso and the Flames of Malawi in group E. The final qualifying round for the world cup in Africa would begin in March 2009 Group Standings Group A: Togo Cameroon Morocco Gabon Group B: Mozambique Nigeria Kenya Tunisia Group C: Rwanda Algeria Egypt Zambia Group D: Ghana Benin Sudan Mali Group E: Guinea Malawi Burkina Faso Côte d'Ivoire

Nigeria went into the Beijing Olympics football tournament confident that they will do well. They were confident that they will return with gold to emulate the exploits of their seniors in the 1996 edition in Atlanta. They were labelled the Dream Team IV.

The rest is now history. Nigeria flew the flag of Africa along with Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire.

Africa put in an impressive showing – presenting three of the final eight, and Nigeria outlasted the others, getting to the finals and losing narrowly to Argentina.

Captain of the Nigerian team that actually won gold in 1996 Nwankwo Kanu shares his views with us especially on the future of the game in his country, with this impressive showing.
