In 2007, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) celebrated its 50th anniversary. The organization ran an online poll as part of its golden jubilee, asking fans to vote for the best player the continent has produced over the last half a century. The results were a reflection of African football itself, incredibly diverse but tinged with regional dominance. CAF was born in the corridors of the Grand Hotel in Khartoum, Sudan, in 1957. It started with four national bodies – Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan, and South Africa – and expanded rapidly, engulfing the entire continent over the next few decades. South Sudan, the world’s youngest nation, enrolled itself into the confederation in 2012, a year after its autonomous existence was recognized by the world, becoming the 54th and final member of CAF.
