For the love of the game. A nation of football lovers, Congolese spirits were high following their win at the African Cup Of Nations on Saturday. Football here is played on dusty streets, muddy fields and the shores of Lake Tanganyika. In a tiny village we visited today, an entrepreneur had set up a generator and a small screen ready for the games tonight. Everywhere you go it is a common language. My passport states Liverpool as my birthplace and each time I reach a border crossing the immigration official also questions me on my ‘choice’ of football team. Kickoff. Time now to go and cheer the teams on!
