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...

African football gets TV boost

Fans of the Super Eagles will now be able to watch Nigeria's ANC qualifiers.
Fans of the Super Eagles will now be able to watch Nigeria's ANC qualifiers.

The average African football fan wishes for two things: that they will be around the day a team from the continent lifts the World Cup, and that even if they never see that happen, they will at least be able to watch African teams in action from the distance of a television screen and the comfort of a couch. The latter does not seems like too much to ask, does it?

Until Thursday, it has been.

African viewers have often been deprived of the chance to watch their team in action in anything fro...

Nigeria's FIFA ban hurting footballers the most

Think about not seeing eagles again. Think of the falcons and the little falconets. Think of how the wasps could be the biggest beneficiaries.

Yes, this is still a football story.

FIFA's suspension of Nigeria from all international football last week because of alleged government interference could have immediate effects on the Nigerian women's team, the Falcons, their under-20 counterparts, the Falconets, and if the Rwandan press and public have any say in it, their football team, Amavubi ...

Assessment: Nigeria's bright future

Although Nigeria lost 2-0 to France, ESPN FC's Claudio Reyna gives Nigeria credit as they had France on their heels for the majority of the game.

One sentence, World Cup recap

It may have ended in disappointment, but this was a World Cup campaign that restored hope, belief and confidence in a bright future for the Super Eagles.

All team assessments

Group Stage: Australia | Bosnia-Herzegovina | Cameroon | Croatia | Ecuador | England | Ghana | Honduras | Italy | Iran
Ivory Coast Japan | Portugal | Russia | South Korea | Spain
Round of 16: Algeria | Chile | Greece | Mexico
Nigeria | Switzerland | Uruguay | United States
Quarterfinals: Colombia | France | Belgium | Costa Rica
Semifinals: Brazil | Netherlands
Finalists: Argentina
Winners: Germany

Star Man

Undoubtedly Vincent Enyeama. Unlike four years ago, he did not have to come up with a plethora of interventions to save Nigeria's bacon. But on the not-so-few decisive occasions when he had to, he came up big, as usual.

Against Bosnia-Herzegovina -- with Nigeria frantically defending a 1-0 lead -- Edin Dz...

Tactics Board: USA defend deep; versatile Di Maria

USA
The USA were pushed into a defensive effort against Belgium.

BELGIUM 2-1 UNITED STATES

It was one of the great rearguard actions of the World Cup. Belgium's quest for a goal lasted 93 minutes and the United States defended defiantly. The sheer volume of clearances made by Jurgen Klinsmann's team -- and centre-backs Omar Gonzalez and Matt Besler in particular -- was testament to their organisation and spirit, but also indicates the amount of pressure they were under.

The United States actually have quite a high defensive line; indeed, some of Belgium'...

Africa departs Brazil in disappointment

Cameroon officials will investigate claims from a German magazine that seven players were involved in match-fixing at the World Cup.

Africa's World Cup is over. It did not end as the continent would have liked, without the results it had hoped for and with no new ground broken. In fact, old ground wasn't even covered as none of the five African teams that entered the tournament will feature in the quarterfinals.

Given the huge impact made on home soil in 2010, underperformance was the standout failing of the African countries at this World Cup. Each was slow out of the starting blocks, with only one team winning its opening m...
