While the Premier League plodded on today around the country on a cold, wet, windy day, the African Cup of Nations alos kicked off, in the slighter sunnier climes of Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.
Co-hosts Guinea – a massive underdog – stole a deserved 1-0 win over Libya, while Zambia again upset the odds defying Senegal 2-1.
If the competition continues in this manner, it’ll be more unpredictable than a drunken Mario Balotelli hosting the National Lottery, and I cannot wait for more.
But if you weren’t tuned in to enjoy the speculative attacking-meets-disorganised defending spectacle this evening, rest assured there’s four more weeks of the competition to come.
And in the meantime, you can enjoy the track above, the official track of the official mascot Gaguie, who I love.
