If I had 10quid to spare I would bet 5 quid on Angola the rising African team, qualified for the world cup first time and 5 quid on mighty Cameroon.

Yes I agree I would have lost my 10 quid but in my defence I predicted before even the tournament started! Indeed Egypt are the champions of Africa and have won the tournament a record five times, too bad they haven’t qualified for the world cup. Who would have thought the mighty Chelsea striker Drogba would miss a penalty :?:
