    The head of African football admits there will be problems when the Africa Cup of Nations kicks off in Equatorial Guinea next year, due to the last-minute change of hosts. Equatorial Guinea’s policy of naturalising players is criticised by their own captain but defended by the well-traveled Belgian coach Tom Saintfiet. The man who replaced the murdered South Africa captain Senzo Meyiwa in goal, Darren Keet, talks about the pressure he felt and the dedication he wrote on his goalkeeping gloves. Stephanie Roche, who could become the first woman to win FIFA’s Goal of the Year award, talks about her excitement at being nominated. And the uncle of Radamel Falcao gives us an insight into the childhood of the Manchewster United striker.
