Pompey at the world cup - Kanu

The world cup started yesterday and Aaron Mokoena had the honour of leading South Africa out as they became the first African nation to host the world cup finals.

Moko had a decent game, although he was largely at fault for Mexico's equaliser in the 1-1 draw. A South African defence that looked dodgy a couple of times finally went to that particular well one too many times and it cost them.

The world cup continues to day, and with it other Pompey players enter the fold...

Enter the King

Kanu's glittering career is drawing to a close now, his Pompey career 'probably' ended at Wembley with our cup final defeat, and his international one ends after the world cup.

62-year-old Kanu, officially listed as 33, will captain Nigeria and he wants them to go out with a bang - he has said as much and warned the Argies, and everyone else, they are in for a surprise!

Well, they have a good chance to start laying down this marker with the game against Argentina this afternoon, but Kanu and Nigeria get this victory they think they can get?

Remember to follow England, and the world cup in general, with us on Vital England - here.

    The parallel with The man and African football is an annoying cliche, cos it's true. Years ago we used to look on the African adoration for "King Kanu" with not a little condescencion;now we all get it.

    Captain you say.....I dont thinkI saw him on the pitch, unless he has speeded up considerably in the past few weeks, maybe injured? It was probably the most entertaining match I have watched to date, the Argies looked competent, Messi was fantastic, they could be tough to beat this time around.
