how the hell can any tournament justify this?


feel for the bloke, not sure whether to believe this or not though.




FOOTBALL star Lomana Tresor LuaLua was last night mourning the death of his 18-month-old son — after the news was kept from him by officials for TWO WEEKS.


The tot died in Britain on January 20 from a mystery illness.


But Congolese chiefs did not tell their captain to avoid distracting him as he played in the African Cup of Nations.


They only broke the news after the Democratic Republic of Congo lost their quarter final to hosts Egypt.


Shocked Portsmouth star LuaLua, 25, flew home from the tournament 24 hours early.


The former Newcastle striker, who was a dad of three, was struck down with a serious bout of malaria last September.


It is thought it was caused by a mosquito bite while he was on international duty.


The player has received numerous death threats after being sent off against Tunisia in the Nations Cup two years ago — effectively costing Congo a chance of getting past the group stage.


This year he threatened a team walkout in a pay row — but fixed a deal.
