Soccer has come a long way in the United States. I remember when I first moved to the United States, living in Philadelphia, PA. I couldn’t find a park with a soccer field, or kids playing soccer in the street. American Football and Baseball were dominating all kids gathering and I knew nothing about both sports.
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 this clashes.
