Ismaouny - Warda and a football match

Trying to find the right mood for the semifinal match in the African Cup of Nations by listening to the ultimate Algerian-Egyptian music i know, Warda!

Ever since the back to back matches in November deciding whom of the two North African giants who could book their tickets to the South African party of parties next summer, i´ve had a very hard time to enjoy one of my life long passions, football. What was played out, outside of the pitch made me totally sick and tired of the game i have loved since the age of nine.

Of course i have followed the results, but not really being that commited, i will watch the game, beginning within minutes, rather reluctantly, but hopefully it will be a good game, regardless of outcome. Where the spirit of sportmanship, that i once learned on the pitch can be one that prevails.

The two countries have so much in common, the best being Warda, and she is worth listing too.
