The World Cup in Russia is off to critical mass, the knockout phase. However the continent didn’t have a single team advancing to that stage. In this show we spoke to CAF coaching trainer Alassane Dia from Dakar Senegal to wind up on that subject as we try to move on from the continent’s exit.

It was Africa’s worst World Cup outing in 36 years, with no side from the continent in the knockout stage for the first time since 1982. What went wrong?

In Tanzania the CECAFA-KAGAME Cup made it’s return after a two-year hiatus. The tournament financially sponsored by Rwanda President Paul Kagame and pits together elite teams from East and Central Africa. We filed a report on that.

In Rwanda champions APR FC won the 2017/18 Azam Rwanda Premier League on the final day of the Rwandese football season staged on Wednesday at the Amahoro Stadium in Kigali.
