More on Togo Team Attack

Through an email from a fellow blogger, I was pointed to Ethan Zuckerman's interesting analysis of what happened in Angola.

He writes:
Hosting Africa’s biggest football tournament – that is, up until the World Cup later this year – was probably a good branding move for Angola, which has made vast strides since the Angolan civil war ended in 2002. The mistake was in holding one of four sets of matches in Cabinda.
Reading the full article, it struck me how fragmented news is these days and how hard it is to get the full picture.

That is exactly the point of hosting the nations' cup. That is why I find it appalling when we make it appear as if the hosting is not one of many priority that a bedding nation has. Here, I'm referring to the bbc reports on the amount being spent.

Yeah, maybe the total amount is not that relevant, it's an investment - is that what you are saying?
