Ep 62: African Cup of Nations

Listen on

Episode notes

The gang are back and where better to pick up than the FA Cup Third Round. We chat about Newcastle and Arsenal getting slayed, Caoimhin Kelleher's rise as Liverpool's #2 and why recent television exposure has put him on a bigger pedestal than ever, Evan Ferguson's remarkable rise at just 17 as he sees some Brighton action and why Aaron Connolly needs to strike now with Middlesbrough having failed to build on his early hype.

From 30mins, we're joined by Owuraku Ampofo (@_owurakuampofo) to chat about the 2021 African Cup of Nations - covering some of the big favourites, why Mo Salah needs a title to enter the conversation of Africa's greatest ever player and the style and tactical set-ups of the big contenders.

We also talk about why African managers haven't seen the same success in Europe as players, why European football's ignorance of the competition leaves them missing out and Owuraku tells us about Dublin's Roberto Lopes and why Cape Verde are no minnows at the tournament.
