Eto'o retirement unconvincing

Samuel Eto'o explained how manager Roberto Martinez persuaded him to join Everton, as the Cameroonian striker signs on a two-year deal.

Oops, he's done it again. Samuel Eto'o has announced his retirement from international football, and this time, he says there will be no turning back. Eto'o described his decision as "definitive," but there may be more drama to follow.

Eto'o was left out of the latest Cameroon national squad for the first round of African Nations' Cup (ANC) qualifiers, which will see the Indomitable Lions travel to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and host Ivory Coast. By implication, he was also axed a...

Finding value in Ebosse's life, death

Albert Ebosse, shown converting a penalty in his side's 2-1 loss in the Algerian League, was killed after being struck in the head with an object thrown from the stands as his team left the pitch.

How much is a life worth?

The amount of the person's salary? The amount of at least 15 other salaries? The closure of a stadium? The suspension of a club? Or the halting of a football league as a whole?

The Algerian Football Federation has decided that Albert Ebosse's life was worth all of that and more. Following his death, caused by a head injury after he was struck by an object hurled from a fan, administrators have ordered several sanctions designed to remember the Cameroonian forward, ensu...

Falconets gear up for U-20 final

Nigeria are one step away from winning the Under-20 Women's World Cup.
Nigeria are one step away from winning the Under-20 Women's World Cup.

The player who tops the goal-scoring list at the ongoing Under-20 Women's World Cup trains underneath a motorway on a dirt pitch, teaches most of her teammates the nuances of the game, and identifies herself by a hashtag #happygirlalways. Asisat Oshoala has netted seven times for Nigeria on their way to the final, including four times in the semifinals and twice in the quarterfinals to stamp her authority on a tournament that an African side has yet to win.

Oshoala learned her game in Port H...

Abia derby thrills Nigerian fans

Enyimba parade around their Confederation of African Football Super Cup trophy during the club's first reign of success, from 2002 to 2004.

While English football fans enjoyed the return of the Premier League over the weekend and Spain begins a weeklong countdown to the start of its domestic season, African football fans' fix was uninterrupted. It even reached a climax of sorts on Sunday when Nigeria's Abia derby produced a six-goal thriller.

The rivalry between Enyimba and Abia Warriors may not be as well-known as London's many local matchups or garner as much interest as El Clasico, but the Abia Clasico is just as storied. The ...

Ebola outbreak not football's first health scare

Members of the Guinea youth football team L'Etoile de Guinee made a plea to stop the Ebola epidemic earlier this week.
Members of the Guinea youth football team L'Etoile de Guinee made a plea to stop the Ebola epidemic earlier this week.

We have all seen the T-shirt with the catch phrase "Football is Life - Everything else is just detail," splashed across it. Most of us have smiled knowingly at it, because the game can be all-consuming, without considering the real impact of the statement. Football is not life, but there are cases in which it can lead to death, and the current Ebola outbreak is one of them.

The disease, believed to be caused by nonhuman primates, is incurable. It has already killed more than 1,000 people in ...

Congo clubs built for continental play

TP Mazembe are primed for prolonged success in Africa's continental competition.

If you're searching for a safe bet, put something on a North African side securing a spot in the semifinals of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League. A team from that region has appeared in the final four in 16 of the 17 years since the restructuring of the event's format in 1997. This year, Tunisia's CS Sfaxien and Algeria's ES Setif are the representatives from the Maghreb, and if you'd had money on that, you would have gotten some return.
