I am football fanatic, forget being a fan. My son is a fan and a pretty good player.
He is more normal than me when it comes to football. Then today after the last games of the EPL he asks me if I know anything special about the best scorers in Englan Football League.
I told him may be they are all from Manchester City, that little monster in the EPL today.
The young man told me I was wrong. He told me the special thing about the best scorers in the EPL is that they are all Africans.
And here they are:
I am not saying anything about the captain, Victor Wanyama who is going to play in the UEFA championship final this year with the spurs and later he will take the Jamhuri team to Egypt for the African Cup of Nations.
I am not saying anything about Divock Origi who single handedly took Liverpool to the finals of UEFA Champions cap in that dramatic win against Messi and Barcelona a week ago.
Neither am I talking about all the African players playing for Europe because they were born there.
In any event no word about Romalu Lukaki. Nothing about Vincent Kompany. None on N’golo Kante. I am not even going to talk about Mpappe or Zinidane. Nope. Nothing from me.
But I will say one thing. Africa won the world cup in 1998 when France won it. That team was 95% African. Don’t even try to ask me for the names of those African French players who brought that cup to France. Don’t.
The current generation coming of these African European players is frightening. Even England could very soon be African. No kidding.
So I will keep quiet for now but may not be for very long.
