    In case it has escaped your notice, the African Cup has started. It's been moved to the summer so it doesn't happen during the European season, which makes sense.

    It's in Egypt. My team - Ghana have just kicked off against local rivals Benin.

    I shall be supporting Ghana too :thumbs:, as Reading's Andy Yiadom is in the squad. I expect we'd rather have him back early for pre-season training though. :hmm:

    Awful. Tragic. Does that mean Reading get Andy Yiadom back? (sorry Ghana are out - would have loved to see him with a winners' medal, but club before another country etc )

    I've been in and out, after the cricket. Hasn't been a brilliant game so far from what I've seen.

    It's become rather more interesting second half!

    Lots of turgid games but this tournament has had its moments esp Madagascar beating Nigeria and DR Congo.
    I'm going for Mahrez to win to win his fourth medal of the season.

    0-1

    massive fluke for Algeria - first with the deflection, secondly with the keeper deciding to watch it rather than do anything

    It was manic on How Street in Walthamstow with fireworks and everything. They fans blocked to road for ages and the police left it clear away naturally without moving anybody on. Brilliant.
