AFCON: Four Lessons day two of the Africa Nation's Cup thought us
Seydou Keita is a national treasure. Well, actually on the back of his contract with the Chinese Super League club Dalian Aerbin, he could probably buy most of his country’s national treasures.
Claude LeRoy is a record-breaker. The coach of the Democratic Republic of Congo is into his seventh Africa Cup of Nations as a boss.
On the subject of treasure and Cameroon, LeRoy tipped DRC skipper Trésor Mputu as the next Samuel Eto. Presumably LeRoy is referring to Mputu’s goalscoring talents rather than the Etoesque capacity to create a rumpus.
Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan’s decision to leave English Premier League side Sunderland to seek the petrodollars of Al Ain could backfire.
