In celebration of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, The June 2010 edition of Vanity Fair magazine featured some of the world’s best (photogenic, I must add) soccer (re: football players) on its cover and accompanying photo editorial. Featured African soccer players are Ghana’s Sulley Muntari, Ivory Coast’s Didier Drogba, and Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o! (Did you know that Drogba did not only participate as the UN goodwill ambassador but donated $4.5 million towards building a new hospital in Ivory Coast?) [AFRICAN SOCCER HUNKS: Drogba, 32, plays for Chelsea as their striker. Sulley, 25, plays for Inter Milan as their midfielder. Sameul, 29, plays for Inter Milan as their striker.)
I’ll take one of each please!
World Cup 2010 buzz: Nigeria played earlier today (Saturday June 12th) against Argentina and sadly didn’t score a goal. Major props to Nigeria’s goalkeeper for blocking all of Argentina’s attempted goals and many props to Uche who tried to score one for the team! There’s still two more matches for Nigeria to grind it out for the World Cup 2010 finals. Nigeria’s up again this upcoming Thursday! Be sure to check out the official game schedule at FIFA.COM.
