'The Flops' - An Almost Objective Assessment

Titled 'The Flops', this piece on the AllAfrica portal assesses the poor performance of Africa's 2006 World Cup representatives in the recently finished African Cup of Nations. While the piece is a generally fair and well-written critique, the author curiously fails to praise the Ivory Coast and Tunisia and concentrates instead on the other African world cup teams.

I particularly liked this part about Angola : "[they]proved that team does not deserve the Germany 2006 ticket... after snatching the World Cup ticket from Nigeria"

Could there be some sour grapes here, as the author of the article is Nigerian ? Surely not ! Who could suggest such a thing ?
