Buba Jallow Fallaboweh on Africa United

Buba Jallow Fallaboweh talks about ‘Africa United’, Steve Bloomfield’s quest to discover how football helped shape the continent. “It shows how football united Africa, throughout epidemics and wars.”

Africa United speaks to you about African football from the Gold Coast to the Sahara via Somalia. It covers the impact that connections of politicians, footballers and fans have. It makes you want to travel to Africa and experience what it’s all about for yourself.

The book shows how football united Africa, throughout sufferings of epidemics and wars. It had such an impact on me that I will be making my first journey in African football in 2017, to Gabon.
