Manuel Pellegrini unhappy to lose Yaya Toure for African Nations Cup

Manchester City stars took time out ahead of their busy festive schedule to spread some Christmas joy to children in hospital.

MANCHESTER -- Manuel Pellegrini revealed he is unhappy that Manchester City have to release Yaya Toure for the African Nations Cup and suggested the midfielder will probably go before their Jan. 10 meeting with Everton.

And while Frank Lampard's loan spell at the Etihad Stadium, which Pellegrini is keen to extend, is due to expire at the end of 2014, the Chilean said the veteran was brought to City partly because they hoped he would be able to provide cover when Toure was away representing Ivory...

Yaya Toure, Aubameyang, Enyeama vie for African POTY award

Yaya Toure has won the award three years in a row.

The three-man shortlist for the African Footballer of the Year award has been announced and it contains Yaya Toure, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Vincent Enyeama.

West Ham's Alex Song left out of Cameroon's African Nations Cup squad

Song has hit form following his return to the Premier League after an underwhelming time at Barcelona.

West Ham United's push for European football next season has been boosted after midfielder Alex Song was not named in Cameroon's squad for next month's African Nations Cup.

Song, 27, has been a key figure in the Hammers' excellent first half of the season which sees them spend Christmas Day fourth in the Premier League table.

The former Arsenal player, at Upton Park on a season-long loan from Barcelona, was sent off while representing his country against Croatia at the World Cup and has not played...

Equatorial Guinea busily readying for African Nations' Cup

Algeria and Getafe midfielder on his side's chances in the forthcoming AFCON in Equatorial Guinea.

With just 26 days until the African Nations' Cup (ANC) kicks off in Equatorial Guinea and the holiday season fast approaching, it's time to assess the country's readiness for what could be its finest hour.

This tournament will be the highest-profile event that the West African country, with a population of under 700,000 and a land mass less than an eighth the size of the United Kingdom, has single-handedly staged. Equatorial Guinea co-hosted the 2012 event with its neighbour Gabon, which served...
