Sudan's foreigners

Dr Amin Kheir/Twenty Ten

Headline: Impact of foreign players in Sudan
Date: 20091023
Location: Khartoum, Sudan, Africa

Article Synopsis: Recently a number of foreign players have joined the two big Sudanese clubs, Alahil and Almarekh. Whilst this has had an immediate effect in terms of results, it has negatively impacted on the national team with local players not having the same opportunities to play in the big clubs on the way to play national.

Opening Paragraph: Sudan is a nation that has endured more than its share of bad news; from civil conflict to drought and disaster. So, in the greater scheme of things perhaps the 12th of October 2009 will be little remembered. But for the country’s football fans it was a day of regret – even shame – because once again they were eliminated from qualification for the prized African Cup of Nations. The setback immediately set off a new debate about whether the increasing number of foreigners playing for Sudan in recent years was the reason for the national team’s poor showing.
