SNACK SIZE WORLD CUP - AFRICA! is a brief, informative and somewhat irreverent history of the five teams from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) at the 2014 World Cup Finals, Ghana, Algeria, Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Nigeria. You will learn - among other things - about the first ever black professional footballer, Ghana's Arthur Wharton; The day West Germany and Austria conspired to eliminate Algeria from the 1982 World Cup; Ivory Coast's 2006 World Cup qualification that brought civil war hostilities to an end; The Cameroon striker voted African Player of the Century who liked to get jiggy with the corner flag; And Nigeria's tour of England's Non-League football stalwarts in 1947. HAVE A BREAK! HAVE A SNACK SIZE!
