The on-going African Cup Nations, which is termed as the as the AFCON 2013, which is being played in South Africa brings to mind the question of whether soccer or football as it is known to many people is a form of culture in Africa.I must say yes because players live by playing gutter by gutter. This has being a way of life in most African Footballers or African Soccer player. Every way of life is known as culture. If this is so, then how are going to encourage the to play football.from the way people love soccer in Africa is something else. People start playing football or soccer at a very tender age. Ball from parent to their sons are common now due to the high pay from football or soccer. But at first it was not so. Most parents were having education or school as the most important thing, thereby denying their wards from playing football or soccer.You could observe or see that a child is having football talent but because most parent were against the notion that their ward should play football or soccer. Now the combination of schooling and playing of football has become the order of the day. Kids are now being encourage to play football or soccer.
FORMS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AFRICAN FOOTBALLERS NEEDS

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM PARENTS

Football kits are now being accrue for kids in the form of boot,jersey, shin guards and many other things to eage kids on to play.football or soccer. Combining of school and playing of football has brought much improvements. Unlike at first where footballers of soccer players were left behind in education, this is when footballer or soccer players couldn't even read and sign their contract at hand. I think, the combination of education and football will go a long way in helping African Footballers or Africa Soccer Players.

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM SCHOOL.

Schools are now adding soccer as a full subject in their curriculum, this will help find the talented players among the students so that they build upon it. This will serve as a bridge to professionalism.

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM STAKE HOLDERS

We have again observe that Football or soccer stakeholders are now putting in much effect that before to encourage the youth to partake in football or soccer. Competitions of all forms are now going on in all forms to brings out talent especially from the mobile communication giants. This is good to bring out best African footballers or soccer players.

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM GOVERNMENT

The government can also help the youth to engage themselves in the playing of football or soccer by putting up modern playing pitches. They can also provide schools with football or soccer equipments to help the youth engage themselves in football or soccer and the government should provide scholarships to the youth, who are talented in playing of football or soccer, so that they can go places

ENCOURAGEMENT FROM SOCIETY

Some individuals too in our society help in their own small ways such as providing couching techniques of playing football or soccer to these youth. Some of them too take it upon themselves to sponsor or manage these youth by providing boots and other kits, food, solving their financial problems such as paying of school fees, buying the jerseys and given them food after training.

When these encouragements goes on for a long, then Africans are going to boost themselves with good professional African Footballers or Soccer players
