Footballer Accidentally Thanks His Wife And Girlfriend In Disastrous Interview

Twenty-two-year-old striker Mohammed Anas went from hero to zero in a matter of moments this weekend, at least in the eyes of his wife. After scooping the Man of the Match award in a South African ABSA Premiership match, the forward from Ghana took a moment to thank those who’ve helped him achieve such a feat: his wife and his girlfriend.

Anas tries to recover, but the mistake has already been made and you can see the euphoria quickly turn to dread. He might’ve won an award, but he might’ve lost either his wife, his girlfriend or both.

Cameroon defeated Egypt 2-1 on Sunday to clinch their fifth Africa Cup of Nations title, and they booked their ticket to Russia for the 2017 Confederations Cup in the process.

A rocking Stade d'Angondjé in Libreville, Gabon was witness to a dramatic and excellent final between a resurgent Egyptian side and a heavily unfavored Cameroon team that many had predicted to fail at this tournament.

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny gave Egypt the lead in the 22nd minute with a thunderous finish at the near post.

The Africa Cup of Nations is usually full of surprises, and the 2017 edition of the tournament has been no different. We’ve already seen the hosts, Gabon, eliminated, tournament favorites Algeria sent packing and defending champions the Ivory Coast knocked out during group play.

A Clever Sombrero Flick Destroys Two Defenders And Leads To A Belter At AFCON

Zimbabwe were eliminated from the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations on Monday after losing to Tunisia in their final group match, 4-2. The Warriors, who were making only their third AFCON appearance and first since 2006, are largely reliant on striker Knowledge Musona, considered to be one of the finest footballers Zimbabwe has ever produced. 

One of the few players on the team to play abroad, Musona plays for K.V. Oostende in the Belgian first division, the striker gave Zimbabwean’s a lasting memory by scoring one of the best goals of the tournament.
