The African Cup Of Nations is underway. Two nil-nil draws capped an uninspiring opening to the tournament. Thankfully, Ghana and The Democratic Republic of the Congo have enlivened the proceedings. Four goals, including one from Juventus man Kwadwo Asamoah, led to a stalemate at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium — Ghana squandered a two goal lead. DRC keeper Muteba Kidiaba was terrific, but this celebration takes the cake. Expect to see the bump and swish at all the hottest clubs next week.
