  1. A few points to note from this helpful list:

    (1) the old colonial are still relevant, but diminishing in comparison to a decade ago

    (2) That players on AFCON rosters come from clubs in 38 extra-African nations suggests a continuing diversification of migrants' destination countries

    (3) Europe still benefits disproportionately form the global flow of football labor

  2. point one should have read "the old colonial ties".
