Too many, football is more than just a sport and here is the latest evidence- an interview with a Belgian photographer on her 9-month travels across Africa in which she likens football to religion. A choice quote: “I don’t think people realise the extent to which life in Africa revolves around football and the extent of people’s devotion to the game.” Skeptical people may think the photographer might be being patronising and somewhat exaggerating about the impact of football in those Africans’ lives, but the photographer does seem aware of this possibility and explains her perspective as trying to be optimistic and portray something good, in this case, football. It’s an interesting interview so read it if you have time. Check out her slideshow where she gives a decent narrative as well.
