30 Sep: Former African Player of the Year Victor Ikpeba and Does Prayer Work In Football?

On this week's show we speak to 1997 African Footballer of the Year Victor Ikpeba of Nigeria about Nigeria's current challenges and his own faith. He says that he always prayed before matches, but that the prayers may not actually affect the result of the game. So does God mind who wins a football match or any sporting contest. And is it helpful to pray about the challenges that all we face in everyday life? Also, we talk about the English Premier League, in particular two African players who are shining – Alex Iwobi at Arsenal and Liverpool's Sadio Mane.

This week's show is produced by Steve Vickers (above centre) in Harare, Zimbabwe with Solomon Ashoms (above right) in Abuja, Nigeria and Stuart Weir  (above left) in the UK.
