I was wondering why every time one of the very talented African teams does well we hear that all Africa is proud and behind them and that they are playing for all Africa? When Brazil, Spain, Italy or Germany win, we do not say they are playing for Europe or South America who are proud of them? Let's give each African nation its own identity and due. I think this is patronizing, like lumping all these talented teams into one pile. What happens if Ghana and Nigeria play in a final one day....will Africa be confused????
