A Game of Passion
Soccer in Africa, A Game of Passion celebrates the beautiful game and its significance for the people of Africa. In striking images drawn from 12 African countries, the book tells of the enormous appeal of soccer, both as sporting spectacle and as a timeless social phenomenon crossing political, religious and social boundaries. From Cape Town to Cairo, Bamako to Nairobi, and Accra to Maputo, soccer brings together people of disparate origins and circumstances. Whether it is an improvised match played on a dusty street corner with a homemade ball or clashes at the highest level between top clubs and national sides, the vibrant images in this book provide compelling proof that soccer is truly Africa’s game.
