GOALTASTIC loves a mascot.
So we naturally have gone ape over the news that the official mascot of the 2012 Orange Africa Cup of Nations was unveiled at a ceremony in Libreville, Gabon, last week.
The mascot, a gorilla named GaGuie, wears a green, white and blue jersey to represent the national colours of the co-hosts, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
CAF Honorary Vice President, General Seyi Memene, said: “We can say that the 2012 Orange Africa cup of Nations is no longer a dream but a reality.
“We are proud and we congratulate the two heads of state for their participation in the event.”
The final tournament will be held from January 21-February 12, 2012.
