African Football

Published June 26, 2010

This is the first World Cup in Africa. There were great hopes that
African teams would do well. Only Ghana made it out of their group, and
they face a tough game against USA. Here are three links about football
and Africa. They come in three different flavors, funny and depressing,
depressing, and so depressing you’ll want to resign as a human being.
Let’s start with the funny one. Oh, it’s still depressing, but it’s really funny too. The Daily Show’s John Oliver reports from South Africa.
Jonathan Wilson tries to find out if there are any reasons for Africa’s poor showing at this World Cup, he blames corruption and disorganization.
Europe’s Thirst for Young African Footballers is an article from Der Spiegel about how African footballers are treated by European clubs. It’s subtitled “A Modern Slave Trade?” It is depressing in its familiarity.
