Five things to watch for as Nigeria takes on Senegal, Burkina Faso

At 24, Ahmed Musa is the elder statesman of Nigeria's attack.

International football is back and Nigeria's Super Eagles face two friendly games against a pair of highly regarded African sides. Talent-stocked Senegal were runaway favourites at the African Nations Cup and, bar an unlucky penalty shootout loss to Cameroon, could well have been the champions of Africa.

Burkina Faso were just as unlucky to lose the semifinal to Egypt.

This excellent selection of opposition is in preparation for the African Nations Cup and World Cup qualifiers and there are expectations...

Samuel Eto'o at 36: Is ex-Barcelona, Inter, Chelsea star Africa's greatest?

Samuel Eto'o
Samuel Eto'o was named the African Player of the Year four times.

Samuel Eto'o, the long-time Cameroon international and former star at Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea, celebrates his 36th birthday on Friday.

Rohr's latest Nigeria squad offers youth a chance and few other surprises

Tyronne Ebuehi
Tyronne Ebuehi is one of three players aged 21 or younger receiving a first senior call-up in the latest Nigeria squad.

Early last week, Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr named his latest squad to contest two friendly matches later in March against Senegal and Burkina Faso. Barring the omission of Chinese Super League players John Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo and Brown Ideye, there were no major surprise exclusions. The absence of the aforementioned trio is understandable. All three have just joined new clubs in a far-off continent, and still need time to bed into their new surroundings.

It is those that Gernot Rohr picked,...

FIFA president Gianni Infantino's tour of Africa helps build power base

FIFA president Gianni Infantino met president of the Federation of Uganda Football Association Moses Hassim on his Africa tour.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino heads home on Wednesday morning after 10 days on the road in Africa. His whirlwind tour has been greeted with delight, scepticism and a touch of cynicism too.

Infantino organised a three-day symposium in Johannesburg to spell out his plans to football federation presidents. He held similar events in Paris and Doha in recent weeks and this closed door session accommodated the majority of African football associations.

It is the first time there has been this sort of...

Leicester dynamo Wilfred Ndidi has potential to surpass N'Golo Kante

The ESPN FC crew discuss Leicester's rousing win over Liverpool.

It may have startled people to be told Wilfred Ndidi was better than N'Golo Kante when the former moved to Leicester in January, but such a lofty statement doesn't look so outlandish now.

There were many who took exception to such a claim. And considering just how pivotal the Frenchman was to the Foxes' title win last term, and his continued consistency for Chelsea this season, you can understand their position regarding such an elevated opinion on an unknown quantity. And to be honest, that's fine.

African Super Cup: Will anyone watch Sundowns vs. TP Mazembe?

CAF Champions League winners TP Mazembe will be out to surprise a few teams at the Club World Cup.
TP Mazembe Englebert won the CAF Confederation Cup.

The annual Super Cup seems as pointless a game as ever there was. It engenders little enthusiasm from the fans, no passion from the players and runs contrary to the principles of good competition. A single match to determine a trophy makes a mockery of the commitment, effort and sacrifice needed to lift silverware.

Yet this Saturday marks the 25th time that Africa is hosting its annual meeting between the winner of the previous year's Champions League and African Confederation Cup, the continent's...
