Do the Kidiaba!

Few who saw last year’s African Cup of Nations final will forget it any time soon. The last few penalties in the shootout were played out to the chorus of the Zambian squad on the sidelines and in the huddle, with the greater narrative overwhelming. There is something about this tournament that sets it apart from any other. As the backstories come into play, the football takes on an entirely new sense of importance, and emotions begin to run wild.

As for what DR Congo’s Muteba Kidiaba was thinking when he celebrated his country’s equaliser against Ghana, we can only imagine.
