More Honours Roll in For Nigerian Goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama.

30th July 2014 And the honours continue to roll in for Nigeria’s Superman, Goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama. The 31 year old has been announced as the only Nigerian in this year’s Goal 50, an annual list naming and ranking the world’s 50 best footballers for the year. Named in 27th position, Vincent Enyeama is the 2nd Nigerian to be named on this list, following Sunday Mba who was announced in 2013.

And I think we can all agree that he has earned the title – we all saw what he did in Rio Brazil, keeping a good number of clean sheets, saving unsaveable shots, organizing, shouting and generally just being awesome. FIFA agreed too, naming the goalie 4th best in the world.

Vincent Enyeama also had a great season with Lille of France last year, going 1062 minutes without conceding a goal and becoming the first goalkeeper and Anglophone African to receive the Marc-Vivien Foe Award as the best African player in Ligue 1.

Congratulations Vincent Enyeama, the honour is very very well deserved.

Zimbabwe Plans to Bid For the 2034 World Cup

30th July 2014 So, we caught hold of this very interesting story from TimesLive SA, that Zimbabwe may be thinking of bidding for the 2034 World Cup. Tourism and Hospitality Minister Walter Mzembi is quoted as saying “I spoke to FIFA president Sepp Blatter during the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and he told me that it was possible for Zimbabwe to host the 2034 FIFA World Cup as long as we keep on having such big dreams and vision,” The Minister added that the intention wasn’t to host as a solo effort, but rather, for Harare to be the host city but in collaboration with other major cities in the region such as Maputo, Johannesburg, Gaborone and Lusaka.

We’re all for big dreams and if Zimbabwe wants to do this, they have 20 years to make it happen so…get to working guys.
