Breaking: The return #AFCON 2024 qualifier between the @AmavubiStars and #Benin’s Cheetahs, scheduled for Monday 27th March, hangs in the balance, over a venue dispute.
@RChipenda, @CAF_Online’s Development Director, told @FERWAFA that as a result of inadequate facilities at the venue chosen in Rwanda for the return leg, the Amavubi will have to play their return leg game in Cotonou on Monday.
But rather than wait in Cotonou to play the return leg, as @CAF_Online instructed, the @AmavubiStars returned to Kigali, after the 1-1 draw in the first game played.

Breaking: In an embarrassment for #PatriceMotsepe, the @CAF_Online President, @SAFPU_Official, #SouthAfrica’s Players Union, declare their strong opposition to CAF’s plan for an #AfricanSuperLeague, which will be put before the CAF congress in #Arusha, #Tanzania on August 10th.
In a separate discussion I had with a top executive of @AlAhly @AlAhlyEnglish on Friday, he told me @CAF_Online was yet to give his club “concrete details” of how the Super League proposal will work.
“We were invited to #Cameroon for the last #AFCON, where the preliminary plan for the #AfricanSuperLeague was put to us & selected clubs from across the continent. But no concrete details, on the finances and other important details, have been given, up till now.”

If there was no @FIFAWorldCup, and just an #AFCON, would he have switched, #Ghana folks? Just wondering…
This is what Inaki said to @guardian_sport in September 2021: "Ghana tried to convince me, but I was born in Spain, in Bilbao. I won’t ever forget my family roots, but I feel Basque and can’t con anyone. I would be comfortable with Ghana, I’m sure, but I shouldn’t be there …”
"My parents are from Accra and I really enjoy going. But I wasn’t born or raised there, my culture’s here, and there are players for whom it would mean more. I don’t think it would be right to take the place of someone who really deserves to go and who feels Ghana 100%.”

1/. “Everything I know about morality & the obligations of men I owe to football” (Camus)

Football teaches us about team work & camaraderie, courage & fair play but most importantly it teaches us that some things are more important than winning #AFCON2021
2/. The lessons offered by football extend beyond our individual & collective behaviours

Just as FIFA sets the rules of the game on the pitch, so bodies such as the UN, set out rules on the world stage through a framework of intn'l law #AfricaCupOfNations
3/. Just as the rules of football ensure fairness on the pitch, so human rights ensure fairness around the world

Footballers should be free to express themselves on the pitch in the same way we should all be free to express our views & beliefs. #AFCON2021

President @MBuhari congratulates the @NGSuperEagles for another spectacular outing that has confirmed Nigeria’s progress to the Next Level in the Africa Cup of Nations (#AFCON) Egypt 2019. #NGARSA
With a well-deserved victory over the Bafana Bafana of South Africa, President Buhari believes, like millions of other sports-loving Nigerians, that the mission of having the trophy in our hands for the fourth time is almost accomplished for the high flying Eagles.
The President urges the team and their handlers to remain focused, disciplined and scale the remaining two hurdles to glory.

The President urged them to lift the flag of Nigeria high, and reinforce the reputation of the country as football powerhouse on the continent.
"I will be watching, just as millions of Nigerians would also do. You have our solid support, and we will cheer you to victory," President Buhari said.

What I am reading. (Apologies @DoubleEph)
Absolutely fascinating book on tactics and what the managers that employed them said was their reasons. Hopefully one day I will have a sit down with @Zonal_Marking and discuss some of the stuff in there
@dwinnera's book Brilliant Orange gets a good plug.
Still on #ZonalMarking

Fella scored 239 goals in his career. That is ridiculous. More than Patrick Kluivert!

Tukiwa tunasherehekea timu ya Taifa kwenda #Afcon lazima tukubaliane ili tupate matokeo bora lazima #TFF na Nchi iwekeze kwenye michezo. Tulikuwa kundi jepesi lakini tumepita kwa kudra. Tunahitaji timu imara zaidi. Tuwekeze kwenye ufundi na ukuzaji vipaji.
Kikosi tulicho nacho hatuwezi sema ni kikosi cha dhahabu.
Nje ya uwanja, mifumo ya uuzaji tickets, uchaguzi wa wachezaji na ufundi bado tunachechemea. @Tanfootball kwa mechi kama ya jana tulitegemea tickets zianze kuuzwa mapema sana kuepusha kadhia za uuzaji tickets getini.
