Senegal v Ghana

A ruby red sun setting amidst a hazy pink sky, African drums pounding the air and a sea of black faces sweating in short sleeves, gathered amidst a ramshackle stand of corrugated iron to watch Ghana take on Senegal at football.

It could have been Burundi but in fact it was Brentford on a midweek night when a little piece of West Africa memorably came for two hours to West London.

These two African soccer giants were following in the footsteps of other countries such as Eire, Jamaica and Australia who have recently taken advantage of England’s cosmopolitan capital’s location in terms of assembling overseas-based players and drawing on London’s substantial expat communities for support.
