Africa, for so long, has been untapped. There’s no doubt a veritable mountain of events and facts that show how the continent was exploited for personal and international gain, but regarding positive uplift and growth, it’s a continent just waiting to explode. Home to some of the worlds largest deposits of natural resources, and boasting immense economic potential, Africa isn’t just a continent bursting with untapped natural and financial muscle, but football as well.
Though only one African has ever won the Ballon d’Or, it has given us a cadre of world class players over the years, who conquered the very top levels of the sport. With nations like Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, and Senegal leading the way, smaller nations have begun their own building projects. With an average squad age of just 25, Uganda, like many smaller African nations (at least in terms of football) is putting faith in the process and building for the long term. One of their many young players, is Farouk Miya.
