#WhereIsFootball - Soccer City, Johannesburg!
Over the past couple of weeks Africa has transformed into the centre stage of world football, where South Africa hosted the 29th edition of the African Cup of Nations. Like all tournaments, twists and turns unfolded on such a vibrant place where the beautiful game is played: title-holders Zambia crashed out early, Cabo Verde made a name for themselves and Drogba once again failed to take the trophy home for Les Éléphants.
Nigeria, also known as the ‘Super Eagles’, flew to the top as they were crowned kings this time, beating Burkina Faso 1-0 in the final. Once again, Soccer City rose from the ashes of the 2010 World Cup, uniting a vivid, football frenzied, continent.
The likes of Enyeama, Obi Mikel, Victor Moses and Emenike rose to the occasion, leading a team which so often fell apart in previous campaigns. But unlike in the past, this time they were an orchestra synced in harmony, they were one team. Africa belonged to them.
