With the Africa Cup of Nations just a matter of thirteen days from opening in Ghana, I’m hoping to put together a chunky Pitch Invasion feature on African football to coincide with the event. As usual, we’re looking for writing and photography that explores things not covered by the mainstream football media.
So if you’d like to contribute in any way, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a note in the comments.
Of course, we have covered African football here before, my favourite post being this first-hand account of the growth of ultras culture in Egypt. And I’d like to recommend the World Cup Blog for their excellent coverage of African football, including a very helpful set of team previews. Also worth noting is the Road to 2010 World Cup blog, where the excitement is amping up ahead of the event.
If you have any other recommendations for good blogs or websites exploring African football in general or the Africa Cup of Nations in particular, leave them in the comments.
Update: There was a problem with my email address listed above yesterday, so please resend me your message if it got bounced back to you. It should work fine now.
