WORLD CUP

WORLD CUP 2010 IN AFRICAworld_c

The World Cup is over and even though African teams did not go as far as was hoped (Ghana was robbed!!) and even through the the final iteself was not a great game to look at South Africa 2010 was a well organised tournament.  The long term effects Africa’s first world cup remain to be seen hopefully they will be positive and make sport and the lives of people in Africa better. 

Looking beyond footaball  and the legacy of the World Cup there are issues of injustice that need to be dealt – we highlighted some of them by focusing on three nations participating that participated in the World Cup.  Two of them have now been eliminated from the competition.
