Egypt won the 26th Africa Cup of Nations. They beat the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 1-0 in Accra and it wasn't a bad final. The best team won and all lovers of football can go away and think: those Egyptian boys done well.
I loved their silky passing patterns. When I go back to my team I'm going to try what the Egyptians do and pass to someone on the same side during a match.
Fascinating as Mr Spock in Star Trek would say.
The Cape Coast magical history tour starts tomorrow. I am going to take my computer with me so I can listen to my music and more importantly watch some DVDs as I recover from this my first Africa Cup of Nations.
Go Ghana Go, as they used to sing on the TV.
