  1. You are shocked?? But these PF. Not all 26 players will play against the others team who will feature only 11 players.
    Where you shocked that Stophila Sunzu had to go back to China with an injury, and he is being sold with an injury to Lille in France. It is SHOCKING to you.

  2. African FA always make such mistake. All they want is give free cash to players and then someone get a cut!
