This year Copa Coca-Cola has taken a major step forward. The winning teams from 13 counties will battle in Nakuru Kenya. This is the inaugural Under-16 African Cup of Nations that will kick off on Monday 10th of December.
This tournament is the beginning of big things in African football. The Copa Coca-Cola tourney is aiming to make sure Africa compete with other big nations in the world. And the only way to do it is to start at the grass root level. “Catch them young.” Moreover, these youngsters will have the opportunity of being scouted by other teams in the world. So it’s not all about Africa but this tournament will mean a lot to the individual talent in Nakuru.
