CAF Champions League recap: Sundowns on cusp of semifinal berth

Mamelodi Sundowns are one win away from securing a spot in the semifinals.

Mamelodi Sundowns are taking full advantage of their second-chance opportunity in the African Champions League.

The South African side, which lost narrowly on away goals to AS Vita Club of the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the final round leading up to the group stage of the competition, were reinstated following Vita's disqualification for fielding a suspended player. Their 2-1 victory at Zamalek on Sunday now has them on the cusp of a semifinal berth.

Sundowns have long made clear their...

Guinea must select next coach wisely or miss chance at World Cup berth

Gernot Rohr
Former Niger manager Gernot Rohr is among the five candidates to take over the Guinea national team.

This week, Guinea's football federation published a list of 15 prospective candidates for their vacant national team job in what is becoming more of a frequent, yet still somewhat bizarre ritual, in African football.

This shortlist of 15 had apparently been selected from an even longer list of applicants, claimed to be 43, and on Friday it was reduced even further to five finalists.

For some it would have come as encouragement of the prospect of an intriguing job. Guinea might be among the...

Nigeria look to Europe for next coach, who will face daunting WCQ challenge

Paul Le Guen
Former Cameroon manager Paul Le Guen remains the favourite to take over the Nigeria national team.

Nigeria are in the hunt to find a new coach to manage the senior national team, but that process is anything but simple. Since the departure of Lars Lagerback in 2010, the country has stayed to local coaches for the national team. Samson Siasia, Stephen Keshi and Sunday Oliseh have all had had their turn at managing the Super Eagles.

Of the three, Keshi was the most successful, guiding the team to the African Nations Cup title in 2013 and the round of 16 at the World Cup a year later, but was...

Nigeria's rising star in focus as Watford buy Isaac Success

Isaac Success enjoyed a solid 2015 Under-20 World Cup with Nigeria, scoring twice in the group stage.
Isaac Success has moved to Premier League side Watford for the 2016-17 season.

Plucky is a character trait that does more than just describe Watford's new signing, Isaac Success. It defines him and his ultimate self-belief.

As a strapping teenager from BJ Foundation, he used to make his way down to Lagos on a four-hour road trip to try out for the Nigeria under-17s. Unlike many who went, he did not go there with hope, but with a conviction that he was good enough to make it.

"He came into our screening with another player that we called Father Abraham," Nduka Ugbade, former...

CAF Champions League recap: Al Ahly suffer surprise second loss

Ahmed Fathi and Al Ahly have opened their African Champions League campaign with two losses.

On Tuesday, Al Ahly of Egypt lost their second match of the African Champions League group phase, a 2-1 defeat vs. ASEC Abidjan of the Ivory Coast. Two successive losses for Al Ahly can perhaps be deemed an incredible turn of fortune for the dominant force that's been synonymous with success in the continent's top club competition.

Defeat at home has compounded Al Ahly's precarious position in Group A after their surprise 3-2 loss to unheralded Zesco United of Zamibia in Week 1. The loss came as...

Lagerback doing for Iceland at Euro 2016 what he could've done for Nigeria

One of first things I heard Lars Lagerback say during his time in Nigeria was that the country had a lot of talents, but needed more long-term planning to translate that talent into sustained success.

That was my first meeting with him, soon after he was appointed Nigeria coach. He had arrived at the Nigeria Football Federation secretariat in Abuja to discuss his preparation programme with federation officials. It was a rare moment, with minimal media attention and not that many people around....
