It looks like our players are not having too much luck in the African Cup of Nations.
Geremi – Cameroon beaten 4-2 by Egypt last night
Last night Cameroon went down 4-2 to Egypt and Newcastle midfielder Geremi played the full 90 minutes for the Cameroon side. Geremi was credited with setting up Cameroonâ€™s second goal last night.
Oba Martins also got off to a losing start on Monday night when Nigeria were beaten 1-0 by the Ivory Coast, with a late goal deciding that game.
Geremiâ€™s next game is on Saturday evening against Zambia. Habib Beye and Abdoulaye Faye begin their campaign tomorrow night when Senegal face Tunisia in Tamale.
Oba plays his next game for Nigeria against Mali on Friday evening.
If the lads keep losing, the good news for Newcastle is theyâ€™ll be home sooner rather than later, but weâ€™d also obviously like them to do well over there, for their countries.
