No sport changes coaches as much as football and with the World Cup over a year away, moves are
being made in the hopes that a teams fortunes will take a positive turn towards World Cup
qualification. Usually, the move that's made is a change at the top of the coaching ladder. After
this past round of qualifying matches some coaching changes occurred that could change the fortunes
of their respective teams.
The African nations have been steadily improving over the last decade or so and the World Cup in
2010 represents a good chance for one of the stronger sides to emerge victorious. The Ivory Coast,
Cameroon and Nigeria are the â€˜heavyweights' of African football but Egypt, Tunisia and Senegal
also possess some talent and should not be dismissed.
We head back to the club schedule this weekend, specifically in Europe.Â However the performances
of national teams cannot be ignored.Â So much drama and so we're here to pick a Team Of The Week.Â
