African Nations Cup Quarterfinals Set: Some EPL Clubs Sigh with Relief

A couple big absences in the second round – Morocco, Mali, and Senegal. This means good things for some EPL clubs. Senegal’s Diomansy Kamara is going to be returning to a very different Fulham as his the whole frontline – which he is a part of – has been transformed. Kamara will now face off with Eddie Johnson, David Healy, Clint Dempsey, Shefki Kuqi, Erik Nevland, and Jari Litmanen for the two striker positions. Portsmouth will get their midfield talisman Papa Bouba Diop back, a necessity as Chelsea faces Pompey next.

The biggest winner will be La Liga’s Sevilla as they regain the services of their second most potent striker option in Frederic Kanoute (as Luis Fabiano remains on fire) and also Seydou Keita. Mohamed Sissoko, on the other hand, will report to his new club Juventus.

And yet the African Nation’s Cup trucks on with some great match-ups coming up this weekend. See below…
