Football inspires competition and inflames passions nowhere as strongly as in Africa. Travelling across thirteen countries, from Cairo to the Cape, journalist Steve Bloomfield meets players and fans, politicians and rebel leaders, and discovers the role that football has played in shaping the continent. He recounts how football has helped to prop up an authoritarian regime in Egypt, end a conflict in Cote d'Ivoire and provide a tiny ray of light in war-torn Somalia. Africa United is a superb, modern-day portrait of Africa, told through the game that unites it.
Steve Bloomfield was based in Nairobi, Kenya from 2006 to 2010. A former Africa correspondent for The Independent, he reported from more than 25 countries across the continent. He is now the foreign editor for Monocle and lives in London.
