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...

Michel Platini curiously quiet in bid to replace Blatter as FIFA president

Former South Korean FA president Chung Mong-joon has vowed to fix "corrupt" FIFA after formally announcing his bid to replace Sepp Blatter at the helm of world football's governing body.
The former French international captain is favoured by many to take over as FIFA president after Blatter steps down. His former French international teammate, Luis Fernandez, speaks his praises and supports his decision to run for the position.
Michel Platini refused to get drawn into questions about his bid to become the next FIFA president.

MONACO -- The media crowded into Monaco's Grimaldi Forum hoping to hear the front-runner -- among confirmed candidates, at least -- in the race to succeed Sepp Blatter as FIFA president in February speak for the very first time and got -- nothing.

Big fat zero, or just about.

UEFA President Michel Platini held his traditional seasonal kickoff news conference on the banks of the Mediterranean a day after the Champions League group draw but made it very clear he wasn't going to answer any questions...

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). 


Liga MX sides struggle in CONCACAF Champions League week three

A 2-1 loss to San Francisco has Luis Noriega, center, and Queretaro in danger of missing the CCL quarterfinals.
A 2-1 loss to San Francisco has Luis Noriega, center, and Queretaro in danger of missing the CCL quarterfinals.

With the 2015-16 CONCACAF Champions League group stage at the halfway point, a number of groups are still very much in doubt. Here are five things learned from matchday three.

1. Winless week for Liga MX

After a less-than-flattering performance last week, the three Liga MX sides in action could only muster one point in this week's slot of CCL contests. What has to be frustrating for Santos, Queretaro and Tigres is that they all led in their respective matches. Santos and Queretaro looked good...
