A Plethora of Nations Cup Previews


There's more information on the Internet about this year's African Cup of Nations than ever before.

That's probably due to the fact that so many Africans play in the big European leagues. But more than that, people want to see good football. And the Cup of Nations will certainly have a lot of that.

I *STILL* haven't found a place to watch the games in New York City. So if anyone knows a restaurant or bar showing the matches, please e-mail me at cesarman@yahoo.com

On to the previews, headed by journalist Jon Carter, who has a robust and thorough preview over at ESPN's Soccernet.com.

Next comes fellow blogger Jonathan Fadugba's excellent preview at his new blog, Just-Football. The man knows his stuff.

Over at the Guardian Unlimited's football website we see journalist Paul Doyle's assessment of the games. He's doing a group preview a day for the next few days, so make sure to check back. He starts today with Group A.

The World Cup Blog has a solid preview of individual nations and is not to be missed.

And let's not forget the mighty Goal.com, who have an entire section devoted to the games in Ghana.

And last but not least, there's About A Ball's decent preview of the upcoming games, done by 'graduates from the University of Hertfordshire and the University of Essex with the aim of providing good quality, original articles and features, as well as many other services (they) feel are not adequately supplied by other football sites.' Not bad ...

Also, don't forget to check out my previous article about Cup of Nations web resources, featuring news websites and other goodies.

There's so much information out there, I feel like my head's going to explode.

Now if only I could find a place to watch the matches!!
