Angola is not South Africa. Cabinda, where the shootings took place, is disputed territory and, because it is oil rich, there http://bit.ly/7UKpWD

What Price Holland To Win The World Cup

While the focus is, as it should be, on Spain or Brazil as potential winners of the 2010 World Cup Finals, it appears that no one is really touting the Netherlands as possible victors. So, allow me to step in and say: I think the Dutch could win the 2010 World Cup.Now, like anyone who has watched football for more than about ten minutes, I know that the Dutch regularly shoot themselves in the http://bit.ly/8iHqxv

The Power Of Positive Thinking In Ghana

While scouring that new fangled interweb thing for interesting 2010 World Cup news, I came across this piece on GhanaWeb.com.In it, the author suggests that the fact that many of Ghana's key players - Michael Essien and John Mensah among them - are injured for the African Cup Of Nations is, in fact, a very good thing for Ghana.His argument is that the absence of these players means that scouts http://bit.ly/6EySO9
