Algeria, Togo successes offset Burkina Faso troubles in FIFA rankings

There has been no letup from Carl Medjani and Algeria following their solid campaign at the World Cup.
There has been no letup from Carl Medjani and Algeria following their solid campaign at the World Cup.

Algeria remains Africa's leading light as they continue on their upward curve after the 2014 World Cup. The North African side rose five places in the FIFA rankings to 15th overall, the highest they have ever been ranked on the table.

Their climb comes with them being the only country to have won all four of their 2015 African Nations' Cup qualifiers. They are already guaranteed a place at next year's continental championship, and as things stand, they seem to be a strong candidate to challenge...

Fresh off a sparkling performance at the Under-20 Women's World Cup, Asisat Oshoala hopes to lead the Nigerian senior team into next year's Women's World Cup in Canada.

While their men's teams have had contrasting fortunes during their African Nations' Cup (ANC) qualifying campaigns, the women's teams of Nigeria, South Africa, Cameroon and Ivory Coast are all in the same boat at the ongoing African Women's Championship (AWC) in Namibia. The quartet will contest the semifinals on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

Nigeria will be looking to restore national pride after their men's team, who are defending their continental title, found themselves all but out of...

Nigeria looking for answers after African Nations Cup loss to Sudan

Nigeria's John Obi Mikel, left, defends Sudan's Muhannad El Tahir on Saturday. Sudan defeated Nigeria 1-0.

The juxtaposition of the words in the expression, "The King is dead, long live the King," can come across macabre on first hearing. The first half of the phrase is about the end of a life, the second about the extension of another. It is only when you realise two different lives are being discussed that the lines unblur and succession becomes the real subject under scrutiny. After this weekend, that is what Nigerian football will be thinking about.

Their 1-0 defeat to Sudan on Saturday has left...

Club responsibilities affecting African Nations' Cup qualifiers

Hull City's Ahmed Elmohamady is not joining his Egypt teammates during the international break.
Hull City's Ahmed Elmohamady is not joining his Egypt teammates during the international break.

Never mind the chicken or the egg -- football's age-old debate about what comes first is "club or country?" Often the former takes precedence because it offers greater financial security than the latter, even though the allure of representing a nation seldom dims. As a result, club obligations impact international matches and the latest effects will be seen at the 2015 African Nations' Cup (ANC) qualifiers.

Egypt are one of the worst affected. They are winless from two matches and will play...

Rwanda elect not to field foreign-born players anymore

The Rwandan national team will no longer field foreign-born players.

Among the many marvels of the modern existence, choice is one of the most celebrated. It is a luxury that allows us to decide almost everything about our existence, from what we eat to where we are from.

Don't like meat? Become a vegetarian or, better yet, a vegan. Don't like your nationality? Go and legitimately live somewhere else long enough and you can become a resident. Easy? Not if you are a footballer in Rwanda.

The Rwandan Football Association (FERWAFA) is introducing a new policy that...

AS Vita's dynamic young attack leads them to the CAF Champs League final

AS Vita's manager Florent Ibenge celebrates after leading his side to the CAF Champions League final.

Nine minutes into the second half of the CAF Champions League second leg semifinal between TP Mazembe and ES Setif, the perfect script was being followed.

Mazembe, who lost the first leg 2-1, had scored their third goal, which put them 3-2 ahead on aggregate and with one foot in the final. Not only would it be their first challenge for the continental title since they won it over two successive years in 2009 and 2010, it also would pit them against their biggest rivals, AS Vita. That would ensure...
