It's Super Bowl Week-end, but for all of us "Real Football" lovers, especially Africans, we have other reasons to be excited about this week-end. The African Cup of Nations Quarter Finals kicks off today with Congo playing DR Congo, then Tunisia against the host country Equatorial Guinea. Yes, there will be drama, and there will be trash talks. But most of all, there will be unconditional passion and patriotic love display among the fans of each one of these countries that were able to make it to the Quarter Finals. This is Africa Pre-SuperBowl, because the CAN Final is yet to be played. An African Champion will rise among all these clashes.
Now, for people like me, fortunate enough to be on a lose-lose situation today (explanation down further), I will take consolation to the fact that there will be a team for me to cheer on in the Semi Finals. How do I know? Here's my situation: originally from DR Congo, my beloved team "Les Leopards," will be going head-to-head with my adopted team "Les Diables rouges," from a country that gave me the best gift in my life: my lovely wife, "la belle poupée Africaine". Yes, it will be a house-divided today; thus, my lose-lose scenario.
I salute both teams for reaching the Quarter finals and let the best team win and represent us all the way to the CAN 2015 Finals! Viva Congo! Read this article from my Magazine.
