Afcon qualifiers: Ghana beat South Africa; Algeria start defence right

Ghana defeated South Africa in African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Algeria thrashed Zambia 5-0 on Thursday in a successful start to the defence of their continental crown, winning their opening qualifier for the 2021 African Cup of Nations 117 days after lifting the trophy.

Adomah helped the Reds pile on the pain in the previous meeting of the two teams, a League Cup clash in late August, which was won 3-0 by Forest. Adomah opened the scoring, before further goals from Joe Lolley and Joao Carvalho secured an emphatic triumph.

FIFA U17 World Cup: African Wonderkids who never realised their potential

The FIFA Under-17 World Cup presents an ideal opportunity for football fans to catch a first glimpse of the superstars of tomorrow, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Toni Kroos and John Obi Mikel all announcing themselves at the tournament before achieving success at the highest levels of the game.

However, for every Mikel, who enjoyed a decade at Chelsea after emerging at Finland 2003, there have been plenty of other prospects who burned brightly at U-17 level, but failed to translate that early...
