The worldwide footballers' union, FIFPRO, has published its 'Black Book' which reveals shocking statistics about violence and racism suffered by players in eastern and southern Europe, as well as the number of players who are owed wages. We're with the Zambia team as they prepare for an emotional Africa Cup of Nations Final in the country that was closest to the air crashe that killed 18 of their national team players 19 years ago. The former England striker, Gary Lineker, tells us who he thinks should be the next England manager. We're in India as the Soccer League comes to town and the former President of UEFA, Lennart Johansson, talks about the current state of European football.
