The 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been much-maligned already, despite there being over nine years still to unravel before kick off. Doubtless, the tournament will ebb and flow in popularity until things finally become reality in the Gulf State, but in this article, at this early stage, I want to have a go at exploring some of the positive things to come from Qatar’s successful bid, and some of...

To even a casual observer of the African game, the title of this article, and the argument set forth herein may be, initially, a little hard to comprehend. How can I begin to advocate the lily-livered, Sunderland-dropout Asamoah Gyan as a potential Black Stars Captain? Indeed, at first glance, the striker doesn’t seem to have the constitution to be considered the leader for one of Africa’s...

Didier Drogba: An African Legend Under the Spotlight

Published: February 22, 2013

commentNo Comments

I never imagined, back in the Autumn of 2004, that this young forward—the emerging figurehead of Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea revolution—would go on to be revered across the continent in such elevated terms. In truth, I was dubious about this broad, bustling striker who seemed to hit the deck at every opportunity; despite the odd flash of brilliance, there was too much of the theatrical,...

One of the key narratives to emerge from the 2013 Cup of Nations was the deterioration and the capitulation of the Ivory Coast and their much-heralded Golden Generation. The team has been afforded a decade of opportunities to right the injustices and inelegant exits of tournaments past, but have failed at every attempt…their latest elimination coming at the hands of eventual champions Nigeria.
