According to french newspaper France Football, The Lions of Senegal are trying to enrol 23 year-old striker Moussa Sow from Stade Rennais for their next friendly in Blois, against the Democratic Republic of Congo, as he holds both the French and Senegalese nationalities.
Already capped multiple times with the U-19 and U-21 in France, the Mantes-La-Jolie native is reportedly very eager to play for the Teranga Lions in the future and the Senegalese FA (Federation Senegalaise de Football) has received an authorisation from the FIFA to pick-up the youngster for their August 12th game.
Senegal, eliminated from both the African Cup of Nations in Angola and the World Cup in South Africa is trying to rebuild a very young team for the 2012 ACN in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea as well as the London Olympics.
In the past few months, the Senegalese FA has been trying to contact Cheickh Mbengue, Mickael Tavares, Issiar Dia and the Faty brothers with various successes.
If the FSF needs to be commanded for their nezly found eagerness to go out and find talent where it is, one thing we should have learned from the latest African Campionship of Nations is that ho;egrown talent can be as good as forign one. Let’s not forget how good the players in Senegal have become.

El Hadji Diouf is very entertaining; We knew that. That’s pretty much all the guy has left, that and the memories of a time when his name and playing skills actually meant something. It’s completely baffling to see that this once great player – that showed even greater promise – celebrated his ... [read more]
Stoke City is fastly becoming some kind of Senegalese Eldorado. With already four Senegalese players in the roster (Ibrahima Sonko, Salif Diao, Abdoulaye Diagne Faye and Amdy Faye) and defender Lamine Diatta on trial as we speak, the Potters could add a fifth or sixth Lion to their roster in fast paced ...

After having received a four-month suspension by FIFA, Moustapha Bayal Sall is back. The Gorée youth team legend signed two contracts in 2006 with both french side Saint-Etienne and Norwegians IK Start and chose the prior. The scandinavians sued and rightfully won their case.
Training without the possibility to play since August, Bayal ... [read more]
So last friday in Blida, Algeria beat us 3-2 and took the lead of Group 6. After a first half where we completely dominated the game, we could have, should have scored at least twice but the facts remain simple: Our strikers were not up to par!

Comedy Football 2013 (TVGOLO.com) by GOTW The playlist is a little rough, especially the constant switches after a whole four seconds, but here's nearly a half hour of football folly goodness to see out 2013 from the folks at TVGolo. It's the new age bloopers VHS. Everyone loves bloopers tapes. ...
It might well be the goal of 2013, and in the final days at that. FIFA decided to cash in early on their goal of the year, but perhaps they should reopen voting. This Spanish futsal number from Matamoros is steeped in technique and skill. Plus you get the patented ...

Barcelona's numbers look infinitely more impressive than anyone else's, though the number of beverages sold seems a bit ...
This little girl is a Benfica fan. Under the Christmas tree, her family placed a cruel, cruel joke in the form of a Porto shirt. Her reaction is priceless and leads to the idea that she'll be an excellent disciplinarian as a mother. Thankfully, her family was just playing a ...
If you happened upon Andres Iniesta in a store and didn't know who he was, would you think of him to be one of the world's finest athletes, even for a second? Probably not. In fact of all footballers, he seems closest to the picture of an average man. Sony ...
Lists compiling the top players of the world are typically best left ignored. Not necessarily on the whole, if often, but because there's that one guy in that one slot who just..."Oh my god. Don't even get me started." One of the better lists came in the form of last ...
Suppose it's never too early for some trash talk, though six months ahead of time is quite preemptive. Cristal, a beer of Chile, has sent a frightening message to the Netherlands ahead of their match in the Group of Death in Brazil. Nude girl in a beer commercial quota hit, ...
