Just remember, everyone... vote Togo, in exchange for free... Adebayors.

Welcome back to South Africa…

Lester Meek: Good evening and welcome back to viewers watching via BATRACER! That is a good evening not only to our viewers in Africa, but those all around the world, including in France, the United Kingdom and Brazil!

Lester Meek: For those of you that didn’t see last night’s Semi-Final, where Tanzania, Mozambique, Madagascar, Kenya and Zambia qualified for the Final, I am your host Lester Meek, and this is South Africa! I have to thank the Broadcasters, African Television, Radio and Complete Entertainment Revolution for broadcasting the tournament.

Lester Meek: The countries in this Semi-Final have all given each other points based on their national team’s performances over the past twelve months. They gave small amounts of points, from one point up to seven, as well as the big ones: 8, 10 and 12 points. The five nations that accumulate the most points will qualify for the final, alongside the five who qualified yesterday, and South Africa and Senegal.

Lester Meek: Unfortunately, some further points deductions are going to need to take place. Guinea, Guinea-Bissau and Libya all opted not to vote, which isn’t actually an option at all. As a result, they have all been deducted 12 points. And Algeria initially allocated points to Niger, who will feature in tomorrow’s Semi-Final, so they have also had 12 points taken off them. Tanzania were deducted points yesterday, and still qualifed in first place, so it’s not all bad news. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the initial table of nations.

Lester Meek: We’ll start off by heading to Ghana and Mauritania, who will open the voting!

Sao Tome and Principe: no games played, no results. We are the little country who play no games and never get no recognition. A vote for us is a vote for the underdog.

We deserve it more than those who have played. Vote for us if you can't decide who else to vote for. :)

Particularly if you are our neighbours. We love you all you see? ;)

EDIT: Just noticed that ST&P 'Independence Day' is the same as my birthday! We were meant to be kept in this competition obviously!

1: Guinea

Algeria:

8 points go to Egypt.

Cte_dIvoire.png?t=1271100969

Lester Meek: South Africa calling the Ivory Coast!

Laurent Gbagbo: Nous préférerions la Côte d’Ivoire.

Lester Meek: Eek, il parle français, mais je ne l’ai pas parlé depuis l’école! Bonjour, le Président de la République de Côte d’Ivoire.

Laurent Gbagbo: Bonjour, je vous donnerai nos votes;

7: L’Algérie

6: Le Liberia

5: Le Ghana

1: La Guinée-Bissau

Laurent Gbagbo: Et les votes les plus importants de Côte d’Ivoire:

…au Mali!

Laurent Gbagbo: Je vous remercie, Afrique du Sud, et nous vous verrons bientôt!

Lester Meek: Au revoir, la Côte d’Ivoire! J’espère que quelqu’un ici a connu ce qu’il a dit. Le Mali de Mikael Schøler continue à faire bien, et la Guinée va bien malgré sa soustraction de points. Voyons-nous vers le tableau jusqu’ici.

SF2-4.png?t=1271100974

Lester Meek: Mali still lead the way, and Cape Verde are also going strong too. Everybody has points now, which is good. Next we travel to Cape Verde and to Egypt for their votes.

Cape_Verde.png?t=1271153275

Lester Meek: Cape Verde, is our signal reaching your island nation?

Cape Verde: Absolutely, South Africa!

Lester Meek: Perfect. How are things?

Cape Verde: The sun is setting on another beautiful day in Cape Verde.

Lester Meek: How are you feeling about your nation’s performance so far?

Cape Verde: Very confident. Second place is a nice place to be.

Lester Meek: Okay, Cape Verde, without further ado. Can you give us your votes?

Cape Verde:

7: Guinea-Bissau

6: Liberia

5: Morocco

4: Tunisia

3: Burkina Faso

2: Sierra Leone

1: Sudan

Cape Verde: And our three big votes:

8 points go to…Egypt!

Egypt.png?t=1271153274

Lester Meek: South Africa calling Egypt!

Mido: Hi South Africa!

Lester Meek: Mido, why aren’t you here for the ceremony? You’re not still suspended are you?

Mido: No, I just missed our flight.

Lester Meek: Oh. So is this your punishment?

Mido: No, I’ve always wanted to say ’12 points go to…’. Here are our votes:

7: Sierra Leone

6: Algeria

5: Libya

4: Cape Verde

3: Ivory Coast

2: Gambia

1: Liberia

Mido: And Egypt’s three biggest votes:

8 points go to…Mali!

10 points go to……Morocco!

12 points go to…

…Sudan!

Mido: See? I feel great!

Lester Meek: Thank you Egypt. Jeremy English’s Sudan pick up another batch of 12 points. Didier Dardon’s Morocco collect 15 points from these two sets of votes, while Algeria clear their debt. Let’s see how the tables look.

SF2-6.png?t=1271153282

Lester Meek: Mali of course lead the way, by some distance. Sudan have also sneaked up into contention, and Adam Wilkinson’s Guinea would be up there had they just voted. It’s over to Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone next!
