Sometimes the boundary of this identity widens, as it did during the 2006 World Cup when Nigeria did not qualify. And so, for one intense day while Ghana played the United States, I became Ghanaian. I watched with my Nigerian best friend Uju, hugging each other and dancing when Ghana finally won. “Some of our boys started playing this game without shoes,” Uju said proudly. “Our boys” were, of course, the Ghanaians. […]I would be thrilled if we win all our matches but I would not despair if we don’t, because I would then aim my hope, borne of an expanded nationalism, at our other boys» from Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Algeria, Ghana.Mai come ai mondiali, si sente questo forte senso di appartenenza al Continente facendo il tifo per ogni squadra africana che partecipa al torneo.Ed oltre a sostenere i Leoni Indomabili del Camerun, gli Elefanti della Costa d’Avorio, le Super Aquile della Nigeria, i Fennec dell’Algeria e le Stelle Nere del Ghana, tiferemo anche per gli Azzurri.
