Episode Info:

We have a very special podcast episode for our listeners today. Paris Saint-Germain’s season has been over for a couple of weeks now but there’s plenty of football to look forward to. There’s the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, the Copa América in Brazil, and the Gold Cup in several locations around the United States.

One competition that is sometimes overlooked, but absolutely shouldn’t be, is the Africa Cup of Nations, which kicks off on June 21 in Egypt and can be viewed in the US on beIN Sports. The competition features some PSG players, but many Ligue 1 stars will return to their home continent to represent their nation. It’s an opportunity to see some of the brightest young players in the game as well as world-class talent that will be the subject of transfer rumors all summer long.

To help preview AFCON, host Marc Damon is joined by fellow PSG Talk contributor Jon Olangi and two newcomers, Fady Ramlawi and Seb, who goes by @lordsebofficiel on Twitter. Olangi, who was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Fady, who hails from Egypt, share their unique perspective on what the tournament means to the players participating and the supporters who are attending the games in Egypt and watching around the continent. As Seb and others eloquently put it, the competition is a time for political unrest to be set aside and everyone can enjoy a moment of peace while we all enjoy the beautiful game.
