Nasarawa United make history as Nigerian football continues to progress

Nasarawa United's 2-1 win over Kano Pillars last Sunday was so seismic it reverberated around the world.

Not many news items about Nigerian football, certainly not ones concerning the domestic football league, make such a splash, so this was one of massive significance.

Here's why: Kano Pillars were playing at home. Kano Pillars had not lost at home since 2003. That's 12 years or, if you please, 202 games. I dare anyone to show me a club anywhere else in the world with such a record!

Many negative...

Yaya Toure mulls international future, Ahmed Musa impresses

Yaya Toure has had a stellar season for Man City and now must fire for Ivory Coast.
Could Yaya Toure's long international career be about to end?

The European season is now in full swing and it has already afforded African players an opportunity to make their marks. With six goals in 10 games, Ahmed Musa's impact has been the most significant so far, but there have been goals from other African players too, including Yaya Toure.

Manchester City's iconic Ivorian has also been in the news for another reason as he contemplates an international retirement, which could affect the Elephants' planning for the 2017 African Nations' Cup (ANC). 


South Africa return makes most sense for Baxter after sack in Turkey

Stuart Baxter's tenure in Turkey ended after just two matches in charge of Genclerbirligi.
Stuart Baxter's tenure in Turkey ended after just two matches in charge of Genclerbirligi.

The only certainty a football coach has is that any contract he signs will have an end date at some point. Stuart Baxter, the Scotsman who was in charge of South African club Kaizer Chiefs last season, knew as much when he left South Africa for Turkey, which is why he only penned a 10-month deal with the Turkish club. However, he did not know his tenure would last just two matches.

Baxter was shown the door by Genclerbirligi before he'd even had a proper chance to introduce himself for reasons...

John Obi Mikel omitted from Nigeria squad; Ayews settle in Premier League

Despite failing to connect with new Nigerian manager Sunday Oliseh, John Obi Mikel maintains that he's available for international selection.

The continent is gearing up for the latest round of African Nations' Cup qualifiers, which will be played in the first week of September. Nigeria's new coach Sunday Oliseh's choices were the most eye-catching. Elsewhere, Andre Ayew took to the English Premier League as though he was born to be there, there were administrative (non-)developments in two West African FAs and Sierra Leone are making strides to get their national team back on track.

Sunday Oliseh's first Nigeria squad has suspect midfield but fearsome attack

New Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has named his first squad following his arrival and Stephen Keshi's depature.

Sunday Oliseh's first Nigeria squad selection instantly reflects the philosophy he has espoused from the day he signed on to coach the Super Eagles.

His first group of call-ups from Europe combines continuity from the past squad with youth, balance and more importantly high level football.

Oliseh has kept the core of the team that Stephen Keshi previously worked with. His primary criterion for selection has been playing time and his current squad more than meets the mark on that score.

Furman addition makes SuperSport team to watch in South Africa

After spending his entire career in the UK, Dean Furman will now ply his trade in his native South Africa.
After spending his entire career in the UK, Dean Furman will now ply his trade in his native South Africa.

It should not be surprising that a South African player has signed a deal to play football for a South African club. However, in this case, it is surprising because Dean Furman has never played professionally at home -- until now.

Bafana Bafana's Cape Town-born captain has lived in the UK from the age of five and only came to the attention of his countrymen when he was selected for the national side while playing in England's League One seven years ago. Since then, he has steadily crawled his...
