Junior Pharaohs offering hope for Egypt's future

Mahmoud Kahraba scored a brace in Egypt's 4-0 win over Uganda in CAF Under-23 Championship qualifying.
Mahmoud Kahraba scored a brace in Egypt's 4-0 win over Uganda in CAF Under-23 Championship qualifying.

All eyes, including African ones, will be on St Petersburg this weekend for the 2018 World Cup qualifying draw. The continent has five spots in the tournament, which will be decided over a three-round qualification process in which all of its countries except Zimbabwe will be part of. The Southern African country was expelled from the tournament by FIFA after failing to pay former coach Jose Claudinei Georgini.

Zimbabwe are still competing in other tournaments, such as the under-23 competition,...

New Ivory Coast boss Michel Dussuyer facing high expectations

After previously coaching Benin and Guinea, Michel Dussuyer faces a new kind of pressure in leading the Ivory Coast.
After previously coaching Benin and Guinea, Michel Dussuyer faces a new kind of pressure in leading the Ivory Coast.

There are two, equally tough, kinds of jobs in football coaching: those with expectation and those without. Michel Dussuyer used to be an example of the former.

He was previously when he was in charge of Benin. The Squirrels, as they are known, are a smaller footballing nation with few accomplishments to their name. Then, Dussuyer began to move towards the latter with Guinea, a rising nation, who have been African Nations' Cup (ANC) quarterfinalists three times and are desperate to break through...

CAF Champions League takes shape, Ivory Coast narrow managerial search

Yousef al-Salem and Al Hilal have surged to the top of their CAF Champions League group.

This year's CAF Champions League is starting to take shape, but not in the expected way. Group leaders Al Hilal and USM Alger have left defending champions ES Setif and Congolese heavyweights TP Mazembe in the dust after two rounds. Elsewhere, Ivory Coast narrowed the choice in their search for a new coach, the CAF under-23 qualifiers are set to resume with a juicy offering between Nigeria and Congo, and the Middle East proved the destination of choice for three African players in a transfer window...

Sunday Oliseh must bring genuine change as Nigeria's new manager

Sunday Oliseh has enough independence to bring about genuine change within the Nigerian national team.

There is something immediately refreshing about Sunday Oliseh. He belongs to that extremely rare breed of retired Nigerian international footballers who have not sat around waiting for opportunities. Instead, they've added a sound education to their natural talent.

Patrick Ekeji, Segun Odegbami, Adokiye Amiesimaka and Seyi Olofinjana are some of the few who also belong to this very exclusive club. Don't get me wrong; this is in no way to be confused with ex-footballers, especially those of the...

Emmanuel Emenike gets his Al Ain chance as Asamoah Gyan successor

Nigeria striker Emmanuel Emenike has been given the chance to fill Asamoah Gyan's boots at Al Ain.

Fenerbahce have caused a real stir in the transfer window, making the world sit up and take notice with the signings of Nani and Robin van Persie from Manchester United.

Amid the delirium surrounding those moves, Nigeria's Emmanuel Emenike has been let go.

The striker's loan deal to Al Ain, where he will replace Shanghai-bound Asamoah Gyan, shows that opportunities exist for players outside of Europe. His switch to Abu Dhabi will pocket him a lot of money but with that comes responsibility. Such...

Changes afoot at Nigerian FA while Gyan gets his payday in Shanghai

Stephen Keshi guided Nigeria to the second round of the World Cup, but is now out of a job.
Stephen Keshi has been sacked as manager of the Nigerian national team.

Relationships were on the radar this week in African football as the one between the the Nigerian FA and Stephen Keshi ended, the one between the Nigerian FA and Sunday Oliseh began a new chapter and the one between Asamoah Gyan and his own bank account grew substantially. Away from the drama, continental clubs geared up for another round of action in the Champions League and the Confederation Cup and the draw for the African Games took place.

Everyday a Sunday in Nigerian football
