Anniversary celebration in Africa

Just three days after the dramatic final in Gabon at the African cup of nations the continent have special jubilee today. Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan and South Africa were the first four countries to hold an assembly general for the Confederation Africaine de Football, short for CAF, in Khartoum, Sudan on 08 February 1957. Over the years more and more nations joined the association so that 60 years later, African continent is the second largest confederation which counts 54 members. Newest nation who entered the family is South Sudan FA on 10 February 2012. Nowadays, CAF enjoys equal status in FIFA with the other five confederations. Time surely flies fast.
We congratulate to CAF wishing them to celebrate more anniversaries like this one!
