Adebayor's first name is Samuel. According to Caf

There is something in journalism and blogging called typographical errors. But some are quite beyond reproach.

If you take a second to see the website of the Confederation of African Football, it says that former Arsenal striker and now Manchester City man Adebayor is called 'Samuel'.

Just scroll to the bottom right part where you can see the opinion poll.

From what I know (and apparently, FIFA agrees with me) the lad is called Emmanuel, not Samuel. Shame on them!

And the even the question for the poll is quite silly: 'Who is currently the best player at the moment?' Too vague.

Africa...would the bigwigs ever learn that attention to detail counts for something?
