Life in Niger - Are You Ready for some "Futbol!"

Folks in W. Africa are passionate about soccer.
An interesting, culturally, read...
...all about a local soccer championship match.

"The Rematch" (a 2nd installment)

Hopefully, she'll write about the 3rd attempt to determine a champion

Now I'm just dying to know who wins the championship!"

I don't think any soccer games at the high school right behind our house ever got this "exciting;" but there was no doubt (from all the cheering, booing, mass groaning and squeals as well as mass groups of people mosey-ing along in the direction of the school) of the nights they were playing games, especially important ones!
