Eritrea, Malaga and Montserrat

Following the defection of 17 Eritrean footballers during a tournament in Uganda this week we hear from the Eritrean FA vice President Kahsay Embaye, Cecafa spokesman Rogers Mulindwa and former international Ermine Haile who defected in 2009 and is now living in Adelaide.

We’re in Malaga with Roque Santa Cruz and Oguchi Onyewu to talk about the success of the team and the financial problems off the field.

The former Spurs, Norwich and Newcastle winger Ruel Fox talks about his troubled time as the Montserrat national coach. He hits out at wah he calls the federation’s serious mismanagement and slams FIFA officials for trying to ‘buy’ votes from these smaller Football Federations.
