A personal note
You might have guessed,
this is neither an official source nor a magazin with a commercial background.
I have reported on all matches because I want to support the African game.
Africa lacks presence in
the minds of the Europeans. They love the African stars of their clubs
but they do not know about their backgrounds. In the (German) press only
klischees like war, deseases, rows etc are reported on.
There were only few reports
on the Nations Cup. But people have to know about the meaning of the Nations
Cup, otherwise fans will not understand and accept European clubs have
to release their players for the tournament.
So I decided to do some
coverage targeting some experts or writers themselves.
Suddenly it became an overwhelming
success also with fans in the US, who can't watch matches on TV.
(As well it seemed valuable
to Eurosport TV as an information source)
I thank you all for your
mails, of which half I have not had time to answer yet.
Please excuse language mistakes,
but I think a less good English still fits better than a report in German.
But I could also use some
help. Soon my ressources will be exhausted.
If you know anybody who
could sponsor a future coverage of the African game or integrate it into
his bigger enterprise, please let me know.
Even help that seems small
to you, might be helpful to me.
