    Interesting to know you have taken up Journalism as a side carrier, Mawuli. I expected you to end up as a politician, or are you just content with being a social commentator?

    Anyways, keep it up. Perhaps one day, it will be you taking the CNN Journalist of the Year award. Kudos!

      Samuel Eto’o is a superb player. In the qualifiers for the 2010 African Cup/World Cup (from May 31 2007 to Sep 5 2009) he scored an impressive 9 goals in 10 appearances for his country.
      Cameroon were not at their best at Angola 2010(beaten 1-0 by Gabon in the first match and knocked out in the quarterfinals). Eto’o the captain, manage 2 goals out of 4 games. That’s not bad at all giving that the entire team failed to shine. He has another opportunity in the summer World Cup and I’d love to see him at his best. He definitely can score some brilliant goals.

    To Me I think The Best African player ever is Didier Drogba, he deserved to be legend for all African football platers, lets see how he make Ivory Coast did the world cup.
