New stars waiting to shine in Africa
The CAF Africa Cup of Nations is known as an exciting showpiece for young talents, so FIFA.com has compiled a list of fledgling players poised for a breakthrough at this month's event.
I am really curious to see whether the Elephants will manage to win the Africa Cup of Nations this time. They were the strong favourites to lift the trophy last year but lost the final match vs. Chipolopolo on penalties. Now Drogba, the Touré brothers, Kalou, Gervinho, Tioté, Zokora and Eboué are back and it will be very tough for the other teams to stop them. Football is unpredictable, however, and I am sure we will have quite a few dramatic and emotional games in South Africa :)
