Africa United : How Football Explains Africa, Paperback / softback Book

Africa United : How Football Explains Africa Paperback / softback


Football inspires competition and inflames passions nowhere as strongly as in Africa.

Travelling across thirteen countries, from Cairo to the Cape, journalist Steve Bloomfield meets players and fans, politicians and rebel leaders, and discovers the role that football has played in shaping the continent.

He recounts how football has helped to prop up an authoritarian regime in Egypt, end a conflict in Cote d'Ivoire and provide a tiny ray of light in war-torn Somalia. Africa United is a superb, modern-day portrait of Africa, told through the game that unites it.
