The World is Coming to Africa

Flags of Participating Countries


Its barely 60 days to the next FIFA U-23 soccer world championship,  South Africa 2010. This is the first time Africa is hosting such an event I guess the next event  to be hosted is Olympics but I guess that is not anytime soon but I'm sure we can do it. Yes we can.

The stage is set SA is waiting and the world is eager. Who would not love to be at the World cup. Even to hear the sound of the Vuvuzela tooting in your ears or hear the Fans Cheering.  This is the time you would wish u were a citizen of SA or at least you live in SA.

A lot of work has gone into this. Stadium Construction, Infrastructure upgrade, etc Sure Millions of dollars have gone down.
This is one of the major events that brings the world together irregardless of our differences. It unites the world this is because every continent is actively represented. This Event is not just for football but it about having the best of football players playing for their countries. The likes of Rooney, Messi, Arshavin, Tevez ....just to mention a few would be expected to root for their country
If Nigeria missed the ticket to participate it would have been a different story but thanks to God.
I so much love MTN's  world cup tag line "South Africa, We can't wait , Lets go!"
32 Teams, One Cup!
Let the game begin!
