It has been a treat to watch the U20 soccer. In fact, I couldn't resist going to the Commonwealth stadium in Edmonton to watch some of the games. Congratulations to the boys from Africa for putting up such a great performance. All the 4 African teams went to round 2 from the group stages and we have Nigeria proceeding to the Q finals. Zambia's loss to Nigeria in round 2 should never have happened! Nigeria played the soccer politics of tying with Japan instead of beating them clean. Well, it was a job well done for the "Copper Bullets"from Zambia as the media called them. I think this is the equivalent of "Chipolopolo."
