    This is for Sulley Muntari's goal for Ghana against Uruguay. And woo! 1,000 posts!




    2010 FIFA World Cup

    We’re back in South Africa with another three group stage games!

    June 19th: South Africa 1-0 Paraguay

    Well, I didn’t think that the host nation would pick up a point at this World Cup, never mind three. The match was fairly equal, perhaps edged by Paraguay, but South Africa managed to win it despite being a man down for half of it. It was level at half time, but in minute 53, Nasief Morris received a straight red card for hacking down Salvador Cabañas with both feet. But it was Paraguay’s foul that had a bigger effect on the result: Raúl Santa Cruz tripped Steven Pienaar in the box, although the penalty was dubious. Fulham’s Aaron Mokoena stepped up to take it, putting it to the right, beyond the reach of Nery Fernández even though the Paraguayan dived the right way. In the other match, Turkey beat Mexico 2-0, qualifying them for the next round.

    Man of the Match: Quinton Fortune, MC, South Africa (7.4)

    June 20th: Cameroon 1-2 England

    Here’s the game you’ve all been waiting for! Liam Ferguson may have been torn between wanting a win for his Cameroon side or wanting one for his home nation, one which would eliminate his team from the World Cup. In the end, it was England who got the victory, and Cameroon did well to keep them to two goals. Achille Emana put Cameroon ahead in the 15th minute, flashing the ball past Chris Kirkland after playing a one-two with the free kick he had just taken. But Michael Carrick pegged England’s opponents back before half time, scoring a header from Ashley Young’s free kick in the 36th minute. Steven Gerrard gave England the win in the 52nd minute, with Young once again the provider. This time it was a corner, and Gerrard saw the ball fall to his feet rather than on his head. Not wishing to squander possession as the ball rolled away from him when he had his back to goal, he chased it down, turned, fired home and put England 2-1 up.

      4 Cameroon 2 0 0 2 1 3 -2  0 –

    June 21st: Senegal 1-0 Ireland

    Demba Ba got his second goal of the tournament to give Senegal are very handy win. Dead on the half hour mark, the 25–year-old happily took Malick Feye’s through ball, shooting past his marker Richard Dunne to give Senegal the lead, a lead that they would retain for the entire remaining 60 minutes. In the other match, the Netherlands beat South Korea 1-0 to seal their own qualification from the group; Senegal’s fate is now entirely in their own hands with their final match coming against the Koreans.

    Man of the Match: Demba Ba, FW, Senegal (7.5)

      3 Ireland     2 0 1 1 1 2 -1  1
        South Korea 2 0 1 1 1 2 -1  1

    So with three teams already in the next round, one of them African, the World Cup is really shaping up! Next, Tunisia take on Uruguay, where they’ll be hoping for a massive win and or a miracle to progress. Mali take on Germany, where they’ll be trying to secure their own qualification from the group while engineering Germany’s elimination. And Mexico take on South Africa for the right to qualify from Group D.

    Well, the updates look better on the update than I expected they would. I'm going to give you an update per WC match here on in, so this is for Uruguay 2-3 Netherlands.




    2010 FIFA World Cup

    We’re in South Africa for the final few games of the group stages of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Now is crunch time: who will make the Round of 16 and who will not?

    June 22nd: Uruguay 3-0 Tunisia

    Mentho Latum’s Tunisia crashed out of the World Cup with another poor performance. They thought they would go into half time level, but those hopes were thwarted by Juan Ángel Albín in the first minute of first half stoppage time. He curved a free kick past the Tunisia wall and into the top-left corner of the goal. Marcel Román made it 2-0 not too long after the restart, in the 52nd minute, with a long range shot that curled beautifully into the top-right corner this time. The rout was completely with just under 10 minutes to go. This time, Bruno Fornaroli was the scorer, and he struck the ball cleanly homeward through a crowd of about six Tunisians, after another good Albín free kick ricocheted off the post. Italy drew goalless with Israel, which means that they top the group, with Uruguay in second. Tunisia, unable even to score, finish last.

      4 Tunisia 3 0 0 3 0 6 -6  0  -

    June 22nd: Germany 2-0 Mali

    Mali’s hopes took a huge hit here, and they would have to rely on Chile beating Serbia if they were to go through to the next round. Mikael Schøler’s team actually played as well as their opponents, and had a much more sizeable chunk of possession, but they went 0-1 in the 22nd minute from the spot. Djimi Traoré held back Sandro Müller, leaving Sven Ullrich to open Germany’s account with a sweet strike into the bottom left corner. The misery was compounded for Mali when, just five minutes later, Benjamin Maul made it 2-0 from long range when he eyed a gap in the Mali defence. Ullrich was the provider this time, playing his free kick sideways to his 33-year-old fictional counterpart. Try as they might, Mali just couldn’t get back into it, and Serbia’s 3-1 victory over Chile dumped our third team out. Just South Africa, Senegal and the Ivory Coast remain, and the former two will need to put on some performances to qualify from their group.

    June 23rd: Mexico 3-1 South Africa

    And so we lose team number four unfortunately, and it is host nation South Africa. I don’t have much criticism of South Africa’s attack in this match, but the defence giving Mexico plenty of room to play led to quite a stuffing. Mexico opened the scoring in the 12th minute, Maza Rodríguez rifling in Andrés Guardado’s cross. Guardado saw the PSV Eindhoven player in space and intelligently chose to give him the ball. One fierce shot later and the Central Americans had the lead. That lead was doubled shortly after the teams took to the field for the second half. Omar Bravo escaped his man and converted Guardado’s pass into a second goal. He ended up getting the third and final goal for Mexico, taking full advantage of plenty of space in the penalty area, but not before Matt Lepino’s team had dragged themselves back into the game. Steven Pienaar’s beautiful cross into the six yard box was just waiting for a head on it, and the head that came on it was Lerato Chabangu’s.

    Next time, Senegal take on South Korea to try and become our second of two teams in the Knockout Stages. Spain take on Cameroon in and exciting match but one that offers no hopes of qualification for Liam Ferguson’s side.

    This is for Germany 0-1 Spain.




    2010 FIFA World Cup

    So, only a promise of four more games for African nations at the African World Cup. Can any of our remaining two nations change that? The Ivory Coast would have to win their Last 16 tie, and Senegal would need to qualify from their group.

    June 24th: Ivory Coast 3-2 Saudi Arabia

    Well, while the other African nations crumble, one goes and gets a perfect record in the group. Normally, a tie against Saudi Arabia would be the easiest when in a group with Russia and France, but Albert Holstein’s side did run into difficulties here. It was Basim Al-Gheshayan’s side (he’s not real, don’t bother looking it up) that took the lead, with Abdullah Al-Shahri slotting home the penalty created from Constant Djakpa’s foul in the box. That was with 27 minutes on the clock, and despite penning their opponents back and pounding at the door, the Ivorians couldn’t get to half time even level, never mind winning. But that all changed. Constant Djakpa went from villain to hero after his beauty of a free kick in the 58th minute. Saudi Arabia had a wall set up but Djakpa ignored that, simply curling the ball on the ground into the bottom left corner. The lead did come in minute 67, thanks to Emerse Faé, back after a one-game suspension. After the Saudi goalkeeper made a fingertip save to deny Arouna Dindane, Faé was on hand to put the rebound into the net.

    But Saudi Arabia weren’t willing to let the Ivory Coast cruise to a win. With just two minutes of regulation time remaining, Saad Hawsawi slipped the ball past Faé with the side of his foot and levelled the scores. Stephan Loboué made a diving save but saw the ball slip under him. Fortunately, who should pop up at the last minute but Didier Drogba? He headed the cross of Emmanuel Eboué into the net despite his marker, giving the Ivory Coast that oh-so-late but oh-so-deserved lead and victory.

    June 25th: Spain 0-0 Cameroon

    Well, this is a surprising result, and one that could have put Cameroon through had they not lost to Iran. Although actually, they would have needed to have drawn with England too. Understandably Spain bossed the game, but Man of the Match Carlos Kameni somehow kept the scorelines level. The result will bother Spain, but not too much; England beat Iran so the Iberians didn’t have to worry about going out so soon.

    June 25th: South Korea 2-3 Senegal

    Edward Still’s Senegal continue to triumph in exciting games. This result put our second African team through, and they actually topped the group due to Ireland’s surprising 2-0 victory over the Netherlands. Lee Chun-Soo put the Koreans in front in the 14th minute, with a free kick, but Senegal had the lead before half time. First, Demba Ba levelled the scores in the 37th minute, heading home from El-Hadji Diouf’s corner. Then, Diouf himself got on the scoresheet, powering a shot home from the left of the goal when he was left unmarked in the box. They also started strongly in the second half, and got a third goal in minute 62, with Issiar Dia’s shot being helped in by Kim Dong-Jin and given as an own goal. But Senegal got complacent, and when Guirane N’Daw gave away a penalty in the 77th minute, the job of getting South Korea back into the match was fulfilled by Song Chong-Goog. Fortunately for Senegal, South Korea couldn’t score again and no more silly penalties were given away, so we got our second African nation into the Last 16.

    2010 FIFA World Cup

    Here we go; we’re into knockout football at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Two African nations remain in the competition, but can either or both of them convert their group stage performances into those that are necessary when only one team survives? We’ll cover all the games, with special emphasis on those involving our teams.

    June 28th: France 1-0 Argentina

    1-0 Phillip Mexès (11)

    June 28th: Portugal vs. Ivory Coast

    Albert Holstein’s ambitions of getting an African side into the Quarter Finals took a pretty big blow just seven minutes into his team’s match with Portugal. Finding himself in acres of space in the box, Ricardo Carvalho put Cristiano Ronaldo’s cross into the back of the net with ease. The problems got worse for the Ivory Coast in minute 34, when Pepe headed home Deco’s corner. A plan to get more attacking, and more efficient on the attack, in the second half, was put on the backburner when first, multiple Portuguese attacks had to be dealt with. Only one of them got through, but the Ivorians had no response, and Raúl Meireles’s shot from Deco’s corner finished off the 3-0 win for Portugal. He was left unmarked in the box and Barcelona midfielder Deco put in another good corner to seal the game.

    Man of the Match: Pepe, DC, Portugal (7.9)

    June 29th: Senegal vs. Spain

    So, it all boiled down to this. Africa’s last team in the competition were taking on Spain. Cameroon had held the Spaniards in their last match, so it was possible. And that’s what Senegal started to do. They kept the Spanish attacks at bay, but then had the audacity to make and convert one of their own just on the brink of half time. Receiving the ball some way out but with no Spanish defenders marking him at all, El-Hadji Diouf simply strode a couple of paces forward and chipped the ball over Iker Casillas. But the lead was cancelled out fifteen minutes from time by Fernando Torres. Álvaro Arbeloa found himself with plenty of space on the right wing, and crossed the ball in to Francesc Fabrègas. Fabrègas’s header hit the post low down, but the Senegal ‘keeper was committed, leaving Fernando Torres to desperately head in the rebound.

    With four minutes to go in the match, Pape Diakhate, who had earlier received a yellow card for tripping Fernando Torres, upended the Liverpool striker again and got himself a second booking, which meant a red card and an early bath, although the bath was only four minutes earlier than it would have been had either side won this in normal time. Senegal held out ‘til the end of stoppage time, but didn’t hold much hope of getting through extra time with one man fewer than a strong Spanish side. Six minutes into the additional period, Andrés Iniesta found the opening when Fabrègas’s long range shot bounced off the bar but split the Senegal defence, and the 26-year-old powered the ball home for the lead. Spain also went down to ten men when Gerard Piqué was injured just before half time in extra time, but it was too late for Senegal, who went out despite a spirited performance.

    Man of the Match: Fernando Torres, ST, Spain (7.7)

    June 29th: England 1-0 Netherlands

    1-0 Steven Gerrard (9)

    So, only seven European teams and one South American side remain in the World Cup. The next update will bring you the Quarter Finals in a little bit of detail before some more detailed closing four matches.

    Quarter Finals

    Germany vs. Czech Republic

    Serbia vs. Brazil

    July 6th: Germany vs. England

    Somehow, England had got to the Semi Finals, and now just one match separated them from the World Cup Final.

    The match wasn’t too interesting, and it looked like it might go the way of England’s match against France. There were moments when England’s defence was exposed and Germany had a decent chance, but the same could be said about the Germans. In the end, Wayne Rooney turned up and decided that if you want anything done around here, you’d best do it yourself. He scored his first goal in the 65th minute, when Germany’s tackle and clearance from Steven Gerrard in the box came out to the Man United forward. He lobbed the ball in from long range to give England the lead.

    His second goal came 20 minutes later, with the clock running out for a Germany comeback. Stewart Downing took a corner for England, and Rooney, unmarked at the near post, headed the ball into the net. England ran out two-nil winners.

    Man of the Match: Wayne Rooney, FW, England (8.4)

    July 7th: Brazil vs. Spain

    This game was always going to be close, and though Spain started with a brilliant chance, with David Silva’s header beating the Brazil ‘keeper but bouncing off the bar, Brazil countered straight away with a good chance of their own, but Maxwell’s shot was well-saved by Iker Casillas. In reality, though, most of the chances were from long range and thus poor, and so extra time was inevitable.

    Just as they had started normal time strongly, the teams started extra time strongly. But Daniel Alves’s free kick bounced off the Spanish upright and was cleared by Carles Puyol. Later, Javi Martínez’s close-range shot was saved by Diego Alves. Spain had the better of the chances as extra time wore on, but Brazil’s defence held firm, meaning only penalty kicks could decide the match.

    Spain went first, with David Villa scoring. Gilberto Silva took Brazil’s first kick, but he kicked the ball straight at a stationary Iker Casillas, giving Spain the advantage. The two sides both scored their next two kicks, before Carlos Marchena stepped up for Spain. He tried to put the ball central, but a little step and stretch from Diego Alves kept it out of the goal…and levelled the playing field. Daniel Alves then scored for Brazil to make it 3-3, and both teams scored their fifth spot kicks. So, with it level after five shots each, the match would go to sudden death.

    Javi Martínez scored for Spain, but Lúcio scored for Brazil. Antonio López scored for Spain but Robinho scored for Brazil. Joan Capdevila scored for Spain but Juan scored for Brazil. Carles Puyol scored for Spain but Hernanes scored for Brazil. Álvaro Arbeloa scored for Spain and…Anderson put his shot over the bar! Spain won the penalty shootout 9-8 and reached their first ever World Cup Final.

    Man of the Match: Gerard Piqué, DC, Spain (7.5)

    So, next time, the 2010 FIFA World Cup concludes, with the Final and the Third Place Playoff.

    Okay then, back to one update every other day.




    2010 FIFA World Cup

    So we’re back in South Africa, with only two games remaining in the 2010 FIFA World Cup!

    Third Place Playoff


    July 10th: Brazil vs. Germany

    So, Brazil and Germany met in the consolation match. The match was full of free-flowing football, and Brazil had the better chances in the first half, with several opportunities to take the lead via one-on-ones, but with some difficult angles on goal meaning that the shots went harmlessly wide. Instead, it was the Germans who went one-nil up, in the 40th minute. A German corner was headed by Sandro Müller at the near post, but the ball didn’t go in the net. Instead, it came to striker Peter Kleine at the far post, who headed it again, this time into the goal.

    Brazil attacked and attacked and attacked, but they couldn’t get the breakthrough. Several chances fell by the wayside as they hit the post, went wide or were snuffed out by the German defence. That’s not to say Germany didn’t have their own chances: with about five minutes to go, Diego Alves had to get down low to save Frank Becker’s shot. Brazil’s Anderson almost had the chance to save the match, but he took too long on his clear cut chance, allowing German centre-backs to recover. The shot he eventually made was easily caught by Germany’s Rico Neumann. Germany finished one-nil deserved winners.

    Man of the Match: Max Andersen, ML, Germany (7.5)

    Final

    July 11th: England vs. Spain

    As unrealistic as it may seem, England have reached the World Cup Final, and they will play against Spain. They started strongly, almost taking the lead in the 5th minute, when Steven Gerrard’s long range shot cracked off the bar and then off the post, before ricocheting back into play. Spain then countered with their own pressure, but the England defence kept them at range, meaning any shots were ineffective. Ashley Young had a brilliant chance for England, when a Spanish corner was cleared and counter-attacked, but Spanish ‘keeper Iker Casillas stood firm and stopped the Aston Villa man scoring the one-on-one.

    But Casillas couldn’t keep England out forever, and the Three Lions scored, with the move starting off once again with a Spanish corner. The corner was taken better this time, and Gerard Piqué got a head on it. But Chris Kirkland saved his header, and a quick counter-attacking move saw Steven Gerrard keeping ahead of a bundle of Spanish defenders rushing back to cover. The Liverpool midfielder took his shot, and it landed sweetly in the top-right corner, flying like a rocket and giving England the lead.

    Spain had an opportunity to equalise, and the chance came in the same fashion, with Mikel Arteta keeping ahead of a bunch of England defenders. But he could only shoot low, and Chris Kirkland made the save. Spain turned up the heat in the second half, stringing together several attacks in a short space of time. England’s shoddy passing no doubt helped; many clearances went straight to Spanish heads. In the end, Joleon Lescott’s foul on David Villa in the box as Spain took a corner gave the Spaniards their opportunity to equalise. Equalise they did, with Villa himself scoring the spot kick. England attacked right from the kick off, but Spain snuffed out their chance. Spain had the better of the chances in the closing stages of the second half, but couldn’t make any clear cut ones. With 85 minutes on the clock, Steven Gerrard attempted another piledriver…but this time his shot went over the bar. In the dying seconds of regular time, Spain’s Marcos Senna joined David Villa and Joleon Lescott on a yellow card.

    It was England’s turn for some dominance in extra time. Fortunately for Spain, the barrage was resisted. In a moment of respite, Marcos Senna’s free kick in the 99th minute curled wickedly, but just flew over the bar. After extra time stoppage time, a brilliant run from Peter Crouch saw him out wide with the ball. He crossed it in, but as Stewart Downing jumped, he brought down Spain’s Sergio Ramos, earning himself a yellow card. But the next yellow came disastrously for Spain. With England pushed back into their own half and with Spain on the attack, Steven Gerrard won the ball back, only to be clipped down by Marcos Senna from behind. German referee Michael Kempter showed Senna a second yellow card, and he did the same to Stewart Downing in the 118th minute, for a similar infringement. This time Mikel Arteta was the player brought down from behind. With the teams level on goals and on men, only penalties could decide who would win the World Cup.

    Spain went first, with David Villa scoring. Michael Carrick then levelled the score for England, and Fabio Capello’s team were handed the advantage when Spain’s Gerard Piqué sent his spot kick straight at Chris Kirkland. Frank Lampard scored to give England the lead. Sergio Ramos scored for Spain, and England’s advantage evaporated when John Terry’s penalty was saved by Iker Casillas. Xavi scored for Spain, and Steven Gerrard for England. Mikel Arteta scored for Spain, and Rio Ferdinand for England. So, with the score level at 4-4, sudden death came into play. Andrés Iniesta took Spain’s next penalty, knowing that if he scored the pressure would all be on England. He sent his penalty slightly to the right, and Chris Kirkland dived down low…and saved! David Bentley now had the chance to win England the World Cup. He sent his penalty into the bottom-right corner. Iker Casillas dived the right way. But he couldn’t stop the ball, and England ran out winners!

    Man of the Match: Mikel Arteta, ML, Spain (7.5)

    2010: June and July

    So the Three Lions won the World Cup and our African nations did better than in real life. Italy’s Marcello Lippi was the only managerial casualty, after his team were knocked out in the Second Round. Roberto Mancini is his successor. Incidentally, Italy were announced as the 2018 World Cup hosts also.

    Spain’s Xavi won the World Cup Best Player award, with Sergio Agüero picking up the Golden Boot, and England’s Chris Kirkland finishing second behind Iker Casillas in the Best Goalkeeper award. Unfortunately, no African players were selected for the Dream Team.

    Team Stats
    Player Stats

    Despite their good World Cup campaign, Albert Holstein’s Ivory Coast fell two places in the World Rankings to 11th. However, they are now the highest-ranked African side, thanks to Senegal’s six-place fall to 13th. Mikael Schøler’s Mali are third, sitting 15th after a two-place fall. Tyler Burrows’s Egypt were the biggest African movers upward, climbing nine places to 34th. Tunisia fell 13 places to 47th after their group stage exit. Algeria fell 12 places and Cameroon fell 10 places.

    So, all attention now turns to Benin for the second annual Afrovision Managerial Contest!

    England winning the World Cup on penalties? And Arteta getting a game for Spain, I question the validility of the World Cup..

    Moving up 9 spots is pretty impressive given we didn't play in the World Cup, hopefully people will realise EGYPT don't need to be in the World Cup to be the kings of Africa and will VOTE for us.

    Semi-Final 1: Northern Africa

    Okay, so the second Afrovision Managerial Contest tournament is about to get under way, starting with the first Semi-Final for Africa’s northernmost nations. This will be followed by Semi-Finals involving Central African nations and then Southern African nations. The nations were sorted by the longitude of their capital city, which sadly split the two Congoes (Congii?).

    What the managers here need to do is decide to award points to each of their fellow nations in this section. While this is generally done on team performances, you could also give points to your neighbours, nations you like, or nations whose manager comes from your own country. Be careful, however, not to award points to your neighbours that are not in this section.

    You can add a spokesperson for your country to your form. This person, who can be a celebrity, a politician or a fictional entertainer, will give your votes to the Beninese host. You can change this spokesperson if you gave one last year, or add one if you did not.

    The teams within a section are presented in alphabetical order.

    The Congoes have been split?!? A deliberate attempt to reduce our points I think.

    Anyway, good luck to all of those in this semi-final, especially those who advance and may be able to vote for Congo if we make the final as well. ;)

    Hmm, a bit dodgy that methinks

    DR Congo will have to try and bribe some other nations this time round in a bid to improve on last years performance.

    Welcome to Benin…

    Angélique Sessègnon: Good evening Africa, and welcome, bienvenue, to the second Afrovision Managerial contest, hosted here in Porto Novo. Welcome also to our viewers all around the world, including Argentina, the latest nation to start airing the tournament.

    Angélique Sessègnon: I am your host Angélique and I’ll be taking you through three Semi-Finals and the Final. I’d like to thank the Broadcasters, African Television, Radio and Complete Entertainment Revolution for organising the Afrovision Managerial Contest.

    Angélique Sessègnon: The 16 nations here tonight have all voted for each other based on the performance of their national football teams over the past twelve months. Nations have given 12 points to the teams they feel have done best, 10 to the second-best, 8 to the third-best and then allocated 7 points through to 1 point to the others. The aim is to be in the top five nations, who will go through to join hosts Benin in the Final.

    Angélique Sessègnon: Unfortunately, it is difficult to encourage everyone to vote. Sadly, malheureusement, in this Semi-Final, Chad, Senegal and Tunisia have not voted. They will be deducted 12 points for this. In addition, Tunisia will be docked a further 12 points for giving incomprehensible votes in last year’s Final. Niger have a six point penalty for an incorrect vote in last year’s Final. It’s a shame to start off on such a negative not, but as Tanzania showed last year; having points deductions does not rule out qualification. Let’s look at the initial table of nations.



    Angélique Sessègnon: We go to Sudan and Burkina Faso for our first votes!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Good evening Sudan!
    Zeinab Badawi: Good evening Angélique! I’m looking forward to a good show tonight.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Zeinab. Here’s hoping Sudan can get through to the Final, eh?
    Zeinab Badawi: We’re all very optimistic.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Well, would you like to get the second annual Afrovision Managerial Contest under way?
    Zeinab Badawi: Of course;

    7: Mauritania
    6: Mali
    5: Eritrea
    4: Nigeria
    3: Tunisia
    2: Niger
    1: Morocco

    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Zeinab. And Sudan’s three biggest votes please.
    Zeinab Badawi: Here are the biggest votes from Sudan:

    8 points go to…Djibouti!

    10 points go to……Egypt!

    12 points go to…

    …Algeria!

    Zeinab Badawi: This is Zeinab Badawi, in Khartoum, for the Afrovision Managerial Contest.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Good evening Zeinab. Robert Boyle’s Algeria keep that first place in the table by picking up 12 points. Well done also to Tyler Burrows’s Egypt, who pick up 10.


    Angélique Sessègnon: Benin calling Burkina Faso!

    Burkina Faso: Hello Angélique!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Good evening. Could you please give us Burkina Faso’s votes?

    Burkina Faso: Yes indeed. The votes from Burkina Faso are;

    7: Egypt

    6: Morocco

    5: Cape Verde

    4: Tunisia

    3: Sudan

    2: Niger

    1: Eritrea

    Burkina Faso: And here are Burkina Faso’s three most important votes:

    8 points go to…Senegal!

    10 points go to……Nigeria!

    12 points go to…

    …Mali!

    Burkina Faso: Thank you Benin!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Burkina Faso. Mikael Schøler’s Mali, who were last year’s runners-up, pick up 12 points there in some Scandinavian fellowship. Tyler Burrows’s Egypt continue their good start, collecting seven points. Let’s take a look at our first updated table of the night.



    Angélique Sessègnon: So Mikael Schøler’s Mali lead the way at the moment. We also see Egypt, Nigeria and Algeria doing well. Kleen Shavern’s Gambia will be hoping for some points on the board pretty soon. Djibouti and Algeria will be voting next.

    Angélique Sessègnon: Good evening, Djibouti, can you hear us?

    Djibouti: Loud and clear, Angélique!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Your country is doing well at the moment.

    Djibouti: Let’s hope we can keep it up. Here are the votes from Djibouti.

    7: Mali

    6: Sudan

    5: Burkina Faso

    4: Chad

    3: Morocco

    2: Niger

    1: Tunisia

    Djibouti: And here are Djibouti’s three biggest votes:

    8 points go to…Algeria!

    10 points go to……Egypt!

    12 points go to…

    …Nigeria!

    Djibouti: This is Djibouti, over and out!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Djibouti. Des Tiny’s Nigeria get maximum points there, and Robert Boyle’s Algeria keep up their strong form with eight points. Leaders Mali keep strong with seven, but are knocked off the top by Egypt.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Good evening Algeria.
    Algeria: Hello Angélique!
    Angélique Sessègnon: What do you think of your country’s performance so far?
    Algeria: I would like to say, “we can do a little better” but we probably can’t. I am very happy!
    Angélique Sessègnon: Could you please give us your nation’s votes?
    Algeria: Here are the votes from Algeria:

    7: Cape Verde
    6: Djibouti
    5: Niger
    4: Tunisia
    3: Mali
    2: Mauritania
    1: Senegal

    Algeria: And Algeria’s biggest votes;

    8 points go to…Egypt!

    10 points go to……Nigeria!

    12 points go to…

    …Sudan!

    Algeria: Thank you Angélique.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Well, Algeria reward Jeremy English’s Sudan’s kindness by giving them back 12 points. But Des Tiny’s Nigeria and Tyler Burrows’s Egypt are still going strong, despite not picking up the maximum there. Let’s look at the table.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Jeremy English’s Sudan leap up to fourth, but Des Tiny’s Nigeria lead the way. Unfortunately, Kleen Shavern’s Gambia are still waiting for votes. Mali and Eritrea are up next to vote.

    Semi-Final 2: Central Africa

    Okay, let’s continue with the next 16 nations. Those in this Semi-Final will be voting for each other, and iacovone will also be voting.

    You should know the drill by now; give 12, 10, 8 and then 7 through to 1 points to these nations based on their performances. You could also use things such as shared borders, shared manager nationalities or just plain preference to help you with your voting. Votes should be PMed to me, and there is a 6 point penalty for incorrect voting and a 12 point one for not voting at all.

    Be careful not to give points to nations listed as your neighbours, but not in this Semi-Final. Also, remember not to give votes to one nation two times. There’s also the option on the voting form to add a spokesperson, who will give the votes to Angélique Sessègnon. This could be a real or fictional person, such as a celebrity from your nation. Change this, leave it as it is, or add one if you didn’t have one last year.

    Angélique Sessègnon: Good evening Mali.
    Mali: Hi Angélique.

    7: Egypt
    6: Cape Verde

    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Mali. Des Tiny’s Nigeria extend their lead by picking up 12 points. Edward Still’s Senegal are now into positive points after picking up ten.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Benin calling Eritrea!

    Sergeant Bosco Albert B.A. Baracus: Eritrea, reporting for business!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Ooh, look who it is!

    Sergeant Bosco Albert B.A. Baracus: I pity the fool who doesn’t vote for Eritrea!

    Angéliequ Sessègnon: Isn’t that Rocky?

    Sergeant Bosco Albert B.A. Baracus: What? Erm! Look, here are Eritrea’s votes:

    Angélique Sessègnon: Des Tiny’s Nigeria are still going strong! They and Tyler Burrows’s Egypt have cracked the fifty-point mark and are running away from the other competitors! Egypt will be voting soon, right after Gambia!

    Really impressed with how we've gone so far. We didn't have a great season as we missed the WC, but the impressive form in the other matches seems to have done the trick. Thanks Mali and Eritrea,, KUTGW Canvey!!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Benin calling Gambia…

    Slinky Dog: Good evening Benin!

    Angélique Sessègnon: What is with all the film characters?

    Slinky Dog: Gambia aren’t doing very well! Gambia’s been a bad dog. Bad doggy, bad doggy!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Hey, hey, hey! It’s okay. You’ve not been a bad dog. You’re a good dog. I’m sorry no one ‘as voted for Gambia!

    Slinky Dog: It’s not your fault, Angélique. It’s Gambia’s fault. Gambia’s been a bad dog, bad doggy…

    Angélique Sessègnon: Stop it Slinky! Look, just give us Gambia’s votes!

    Slinky Dog:

    7: Niger

    6: Mali

    5: Sudan

    4: Senegal

    3: Nigeria

    2: Cape Verde

    1: Burkina Faso

    Slinky Dog: Bad doggy, bad dog;

    8 points go to…Tunisia! Bad doggy.

    10 points go to……Egypt! Bad dog.

    12 points go to…

    …bad doggy…

    …Eritrea!

    Slinky Dog: Bad doggy, bad dog!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Erm…thank you Gambia. Quandiose Yancy’s Eritrea pick up only their second ever 12-pointer. Des Tiny’s Nigeria fared rather poorly in Gambia’s votes, picking up just three points. Egypt overtake them for now, but are next to vote.




    Angélique Sessègnon: Hello, Egypt?
    Mohamed Al-Fayed: Good evening Angela.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Ooh, it’s Mohamed Al-Fayed! Tell me, Mr Al-Fayed, how’s the search for a new Fulham manager going?
    Mohamed Al-Fayed: Not as well as Egypt’s Afrovision campaign is.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Ooh. Well. If you’d like to give us your votes…
    Mohamed Al-Fayed: Sure. Here are the votes from Egypt:

    7: Morocco
    6: Algeria
    5: Nigeria
    4: Djibouti
    3: Niger
    2: Eritrea
    1: Mali

    Mohamed Al-Fayed: And here are Egypt’s three biggest votes:

    8 points go to…Senegal!

    10 points go to……Chad!

    12 points go to…

    …Sudan!

    Mohamed Al-Fayed: Thank you Angela. I’ll see you for the Final.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Oh, bye bye Mr Al-Fayed! Jeremy English’s Sudan pick up 12 points but the real surprise is Hryhorii Zahorchak’s Chad taking 10 points, putting them in positive figures. How do the teams measure up now, maintenant?



    Angélique Sessègnon: There are no major changes, and Des Tiny’s Nigeria still lead the way, but everyone has positive points now, which is nice. Mauritania and Cape Verde vote next.

    I'm a bit disappointed with the point tally so far. Egypt has clearly voted against us, seeing we only got 1 point.

    We had such a good run, so where's the points

    Angélique Sessègnon: Benin calling Mauritania!
    Mauritania: Good evening Benin. You’re putting on a lovely show.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Mauritania! Could you give us your votes?
    Mauritania: Oh sure. Here are the votes from Mauritania:

    7: Algeria
    6: Nigeria
    5: Niger
    4: Djibouti
    3: Egypt
    2: Gambia
    1: Sudan

    Mauritania: And here are our three most important votes:

    8 points go to…Cape Verde!

    10 points go to……Senegal!

    12 points go to…

    …Mali!

    Mauritania: Thank you Benin!
    Angélique Sessègnon: Some more points for Edward Still’s Senegal, although Mikael Schøler’s Mali pick up maximum points from Mauritania.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Hello…Cape Verde?

    Cape Verde: Hello Benin!

    Angélique Sessègnon: How are things in Cape Verde?

    Cape Verde: I can’t complain. Here are our nation’s votes:

    7: Niger

    6: Egypt

    5: Djibouti

    4: Chad

    3: Algeria

    2: Eritrea

    1: Burkina Faso

    Cape Verde: And our three biggest votes:

    8 points go to…Senegal!

    10 points go to……Mauritania!

    12 points go to…

    …Gambia!

    Cape Verde: Thank you Angélique, and good night!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Cape Verde. Kleen Shavern’s Gambia pick up 12 points from Cape Verde, just like last year. Lawrence Lazewski’s Mauritania take ten. Let’s see the latest scores table.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Tyler Burrows’s Egypt are the new leaders, and Edward Still’s Senegal climb up into the qualification places. Sadly, Hryhorii Zahorchak’s Chad and Mentho Latum’s Tunisia are no longer able to reach the Final. Neighbours Niger and Nigeria vote next.

    I hope Sao Tome's Central African friends are remembering our votes in the first Afrovision contest. With no results (again), we are reliant on our friends. Who we love very much.

    EDIT: Hang on. Why've we been moved out of our region? It's a blooming conspiracy this! We've built up relationship because we play no games and then we get moved out? We've got no chance!

    Wow the battle is on, hopefully the Nigers gave very few points to the Egyptians, should see Nigeria move to 82pts & Niger up by 12 We can do this and make it into the final, Niger Cousins all the way.

    Ouwo Moussa Maazou: Thank you Nigeria, and thank you Angélique!

    Rashidi Yekini: Thank you and good night!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Niger and Nigeria reward each other with 12 points. And Hryhorii Zahorchak’s Chad pick up 20 points, but it’s too late for them. Let’s look at the penultimate table, Nigeria are surely through now.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Des Tiny’s Nigeria take top spot and qualify for the Final, but Tyler Burrows’s Egypt and Mikael Schøler’s Mali are also through. Morocco, Djibouti, Eritrea, Mauritania, Burkina Faso and the Gambia are all eliminated, meaning there are five nations fighting it out for two places. Morocco are the last nation to vote.

    Excellent, now hopefully you are given enough points by Morocco to get through. Delighted to have guaranteed qualification to the final for the second straight year.

    Phew just scraped it through. I had thought we would have gotten more points, but a 3rd place is still approved

    Angélique Sessègnon: Benin calling Morocco!

    Jamel Debbouze: Bonjour Angélique! Ca roule, ma poule?

    Angélique Sessègnon: C’est chouet, Georgette! Pouvez-vous nous donner les votes du Maroc?

    Jamel Debbouze: Oui, bien sûr. Felicitations pour une cérémonie très belle!

    7: Le Sénégal

    6: Le Burkina Faso

    5: Le Cap-Vert

    4: L’Algérie

    3: L’Égypte

    2: Le Soudan

    1: Djibouti

    Jamel Debbouze:

    8 points vont…au Mali!

    10 points vont……à la Mauritanie!

    12 points vont…

    …au Nigéria!

    Jamel Debbouze: Merci et au revoir, Angélique. Je pense que vous pouvez trouver un rôle dans un de mes films.

    Angélique Sessègnon: Oh, Jamel, vous flattez! Mais, les votes, oui. La Mauritanie gagne dix points mais ces points-là sont inutiles. La Nigérie prend le douze. Pouvons-nous voir un tableau final?



    Angélique Sessègnon: Well, the challengers couldn’t catch up and so Jeremy English’s Sudan and Edward Still’s Senegal make it into the Final with Nigeria, Mali and Egypt, and of course with Benin. Don’t forget to join me tomorrow night, demain soir, where another sixteen nations will battle to reach the Final.

    Writer’s Notes: Mali got 12 points from three nations (Burkina Faso, Eritrea, Mauritania). Egypt didn’t get any 12-pointers.

    Sigh, no points. Niger miss out again (even without the 6 point deduction).

    Go Nigeria!

    To be fair though, of the five qualifying sides, two reached the African Cup of Nations Final, one reached the World Cup 2nd Round and finished 3rd in the ACN, and the other two at least played games. Better luck next year.

    Thanks to the 3 nations for the 12 points. That put Mali in 2nd place. Acceptable

    Everyone should just vote for Lesotho because they are small and have some great players (somewhere)

    Benin there, done that. Now let’s do it again!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Hello and welcome back to Porto Novo, where we are hosting the second annual Afrovision Managerial Contest! Welcome also to our viewers across the world, who are watching via BATRACER: the Broadcasters, African Television, Radio and Complete Entertainment Revolution.

    Angélique Sessègnon: If you were watching last night, you’ll have seen Nigeria, Mali, Egypt, Sudan and Senegal qualify for the Final, where they’ll compete for the grand prize alongside Benin. Tonight, another sixteen nations want another five spots in the Final, but who will get them? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s by farming their votes! The nations in this Semi-Final have given points to their competitors based on how well their national football teams did in the past twelve months. They gave one through seven points, and then eight, ten and twelve points to the best performers.

    Angélique Sessègnon: Unfortunately, not everyone played ball. We didn’t get votes from Cameroon, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya or Somalia so they will all be deducted 12 points. Rwanda didn’t vote in last year’s Final so I’m afraid they lose 12 points too. Both Uganda and Equatorial Guinea gave incorrect votes last year so they lose 6 points, and the Central African Republic are also deducted six points for incorrect votes this year. However, so many deductions means that a deduction won’t stop you from qualifying!

    Angélique Sessègnon: So let’s see where that puts everyone.



    Angélique Sessègnon: We will go to Sierra Leone and the Congo for our first votes!

    Angélique Sessègnon: This is Benin calling Sierra Leone!
    Mr Giggs: Hello Benin.
    Angélique Sessègnon: I’m sorry, I’m afraid I can’t see your face. Could you move out of the shadow please?
    Mr Giggs: No can do, Benin.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Okay, well, I suppose I’d like your votes then…
    Mr Giggs: Here are the votes from the Republic of Sierra Leone:

    7: Gabon
    6: São Tomé and Príncipe
    5: Togo
    4: Uganda
    3: Central African Republic
    2: Ivory Coast
    1: Rwanda

    Mr Giggs: And here are our three biggest votes:

    8 points go to…the Congo!

    10 points go to……Equatorial Guinea!

    12 points go to…

    …Liberia!

    Mr Giggs: Goodnight, Angélique. Have a good show.
    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Sierra Leone, and thank you…Mr Giggs? Was that Ryan Giggs? Well, Tomaldinho’s Liberia pick up, just like last year, 12 points from Sierra Leone.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Porto Novo calling Brazzaville!

    Congo: Good evening Benin! What a lovely show you put out last night. I must say I was hooked to it!

    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you Congo! You’ve already picked up eight points so have made a good start. Could you give us your votes?

    Congo:

    7: Sierra Leone

    6: Equatorial Guinea

    5: Rwanda

    4: Ghana

    3: Ivory Coast

    2: Kenya

    1: Liberia

    Congo: And the most important votes;

    8 points go to…Uganda!

    10 points go to……Gabon!

    12 points go to…

    …Central African Republic!

    Congo: Thank you Benin.

    Angélique Sessègnon: Thank you to the Congo. Ricky Nakano’s Central African Republic pick up maximum points from the Congo, which clears their six-point deficit. And Ken Co’s Gabon pick up the 10 points. Let’s see how the table looks after the first two sets of votes.



    Angélique Sessègnon: Ken Co’s Gabon lead the way at this early stage, with Tomaldinho’s Liberia second. Albert Holstein’s Ivory Coast, despite a good World Cup, make a shaky start, and are the joint-worst of the nations without points deductions. But things should pick up for them, as we travel to Rwanda and the Central African Republic!

    Eek, only 5 points after a good World Cup. I call shenanigans!
