This African Nation's 2008 tournament held in Ghana, was supposed to be an amalgumation of all that is good about African football from the organisation, the turnout of the fans and the quality on show from the abudence of start players.
All the top teams had players plying their trade at the big clubs in Europe but it was Egypt, with their technical skills, through to their tactical know-how who came away with the trophy. For all their big chat, Drogba, Eto'o, Mikkel, Kalou and the Potsmouth boys were a huge dissapointment. Drogba needs to establish some kind of credibility, because walking around Africa as though you were John Terry does not wash with our people.
Congratulations to Egypt, who's entire squad do not play in Europe, Is there a message to be learnt?
