01 July: 2018 World Cup Qualifying Draw & Didier Drogba Story Part 2

On this week's show we analyse the draw for the final stage of the 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifiers for Africa. Group B is the so-called "Group of Death" with Cameroon, Algeria, Nigeria and Zambia. Senegal have a much easier-looking draw, and we talk to Teranga Lions fans in Dakar. We catch up what's happening on the transfer market – Southampton have sold two African players - Sadio Mane to Liverpool and Victor Wanyama to Tottenham. We assess how they might do at their new clubs. And Stuart Weir has the second part of a profile of one of Africa's all-time greats, Didier Drogba.

The Teranga Lions haven't been to the World Cup since 2002, when they reached the quarter-finals.  They are in a qualifying group wth South Africa, Burkina Faso and Cape Verde. Can they make it this time? Send us your comments on Facebook (see below), by email to or via Whats App +44-7955-232780
