Angolan Supporters Angolan football supporters and the Palancas Negras (The Black Antelopes) have succeeded in the placing the name of Angola on the football map since 1982. Since their apperance in the World Cup (Germany 2006) Angola is gradually emerging as a promising side.
Nigerian Football Team Football fans will not forget nostalic memories of Nigeria's glorious days when the Eagles boasted of the mesmorising talent of Austin Jayjay Okocha and the defence barrier provided by Sunday Oliseh Rashidi Yekini as the scoring machine upfront.
Egyptian Football Team The pharaoh of Egypt, the African cup holder are the most successful team (6 titles) that the continental competition has ever recorded. Regrettably Pharaohs' failed to qualify for South Africa 2010. This lack of form questione their readiness.
Ghanian Fans Ghanaian football fans are the fact that Black stars have given a good account of themselves in matches. Stars have been enjoying massive support from fans. By all account, the soccer fever sweeping the nation surpasses even the heydays of Ghanaian football.
Cameroun Football Team Cameroun emerges as a football force in Africa and has been able to set a number of records at the World Cup. The Indomitable Lions particpated in the World Cup 5 times (1982, 1990, 1994, 1998 and 2002); and first African team to reach the quarter finals.

Brazil as far as the world cup is concerned has recorded the best performances. It is the only team that has taken part in all 18 World cup competitions

 and has registered the highest number of successes in the final; 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002. They also were runners up in 1950 and 1998. It’s indeed a great team in world football. In their qualification race under their coach and former player Dunga, they sailed through the potentially tricky South American world cup group, booking some away win like in Uruguay, Venezuela and the 3-1 defeat over Argentina. Their biggest problems were at home facing massed defences like Argentina, Columbia and Venezuela. Their only defeats in the 18 matches were against Paraguay and Bolivia. By then, they had already grabbed a ticket to South Africa 2010.

COACH: Dunga, former Brazilian captain

 KEY PLAYERS:

 Kaka  (Real Madrid).

 Full name Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, aged 27 and plays in the Midfield, FIFA’s world player of the year in 2007, was present in 2006 world cup but had only a brief appearance in the world cup campaign.

Luis Fabiano (Sevilla)

Aged 27and plays forward, was Brazil’s top scorer in the world cup campaign scoring 9 goals in 11 matches and is very powerful and accurate.

Julio Cesar (Inter Milan)

Aged 30 and is a fabulous goalkeeper, has been in the record of the world’s top goalkeepers. He made many outstanding saves in the qualifying campaign.

Brazil which was 2nd in the world ranking as of Nov 2009 has been turned into a ruthlessly efficient outfit by its coach Dunga, after their fall in the 2006 world cup in Germany where they were knocked out at quarter finals. So this time they are coming with full strength and are amongst the favourites.
