England for the Cup?
Check out my piece "The Black Princes of England" on the South African football blog, Football is Coming Home.
Here's an excerpt..."The names of Beckham, Gerrard, Lampard and Rooney have been written and
will be ubiquitous in replica, official and illicit. Yet, such larger
than life names cannot conceal a new England reality. England’s
conquering football Princes promise to be black, mostly. It is this
remarkable contribution from the African Diaspora that will soon
transpose itself from the back page columns and blogs to the front-page
consciousness of England."
