Friends of the Caribbean v Friends of Africa
Football may be “the beautiful game” but there can only be one winner. As Bill Shankly, former Liverpool manager famously said, “If you are first you are first. If you are second you are nothing”.
So after decades of debates in homes, pubs, clubs, schools and barbers shops this monumental game will finally decide who really is the best. Will it be the Caribbean or Africa who come out the Kings in this Game of Thrones? And which fans from these sparring teams can make the most noise?
Well this is the time to finally settle the score and lay rest this long standing debate (what will be left to discuss at the barbers Shops)
An array of Celebrities, footballing heroes and some of the UK’s most famous faces will battle it out to win Friends of Africa Vs Friends of Caribbean trophy. Jason Roberts will lead out the Caribbean team and Efetobore Sodje will lead the African team – the teams will be managed by legendary Nigerian Striker Segun Odegbami, TV personality and ex Ghana international Andy Ansah and Ex Bolton ace Fabrice Muamba, whilst the Caribbean team will be managed by England and Arsenal legend Ian Wright, and Ex Chelsea player Eddie Newton.
