We know it’s not strictly African or Asian football, but at SFG we’re gearing up for the start of the English Premier League season by starting our very own Fantasy football league. We’re not picky if you select Shinji Okazaki or Bakary Sako, or if you decide to avoid both our continents all together, we just welcome anyone who wants to take a shot at beating our contributors.
For some inspiration, check out a squad entirely combined of African and Asian internationals;
Registration can be found by visiting the following link.
League Name: Sandals for Goalposts
League Code: 37140-421170
Deadline: Saturday 8th August (Any latecomers can enter, but they’ll be at least a week behind the rest of us!)
For the lucky winner, this year we’ll be giving away a copy of James Montague’s brilliant book When Friday Comes, a great read on football in the Middle East.
In addition, the man himself has donated a signed copy of his new book Thirty-One Nil as an additional prize for whoever comes out on top. Our thanks goes out to James
