This week our feature interview is with May Jeong, a freelance journalist based in Kabul, Afghanistan. She’ll be talking to us about the resurgence of the Afghan national team, and how recent victories against Pakistan and in the South Asian Championship have helped to bring the nation together. She’ll also be telling us how far football in the country has come in the last few years, and how we can start to get excited about the Afghan Premier League.
We’ll also be taking a look at the highs and lows of the men between the sticks this week – a striker’s performance for Asmir Begovic, an adolescent performance in Ligue 1, and a knockout performance for Hugo Lloris.
Then it’s off Stateside to look at David Beckham’s designs on bringing a football team back to Miami, before getting very confused by pitch markings during this week’s round of MLS play-offs.
And before we finish, there’s also time for a quick look at why Jurgen Klopp’s contract extension is good news for fans of heavy metal, and after the roaring success of the inaugural AFR Book Club©, prepare to feast your ears on another literary marvel – the fictional works of Steve Bruce.
Thanks to London-based French journalist Olivier Sclavo for his #whereisfootball snap of Deptford Park on Instagram - you can feel free lay claim to our cover art for the next week monsieur.
