Wow, he just megged three people, maradonas around the last defender, and missed the shot, then not five minutes later a guy on the other team shoots when he gets the ball and scores...

who would you rather be?

I wish we got those games televised. Im sure they are very exciting games to watch. I havent even heard of three of those teams so that should be interesting.

im lucky i live in africa
i watched the senegal-togo game live from the stadium. and the level isnt low at all. first half was beutiful with a crazy public. it was very fun but in the end it was 2-2 because senegal didnt kill the game in the first half.

African soccer is just not very apealing. I dont know why, it just sint to me. I dont know how senegal beat France in 2002, but trust me, it wont happen again. i think the only time the games are actually good, is when they play against each other.

ye i know. senegal cant beat france again
they just had a good team and morale that year. so great things were expected.
by the way u shuldnt generalize too much on african soccer because many of their players play in europe and are forced to adapt to their other teammates styles.

george weah, patrick mboma, and now michael essien. africa has produced plenty of top level footballers, how could you say their style is anything less than exciting?

Never forget Jay-Jay Okocha...
The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it until it does.

no its because many countries in africa arent as developed as in europe. and in europe football is very popular because of all the tournaments like euros or world cups or confederation cups etc.

Yeah europe is where all the big names go to. All south american, african and asian superstars would love to play for a G14 club or Chelski. To play for one of those clubs mean that you're really at the top of the game.
