How often do we hear about Equatorial Guinea's soccer program?
The Spanish speaking, African nation has made quite a name for itself at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. Its women's team recently defeated Iran, and headed to the finals to face off with Chile.
A double boost for the nation. The success of the women's team has peaked the interest of the nation's Minister of Agriculture and Forestry and National President of the Youth Federation of the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE), Nguema Obiang Mangue. He has been attending and supporting the women's soccer matches at the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games in an effort to promote and support culture and sports in his country.
Keep a close eye on team captain, Judit Ndong and her squad. Despite their defeat on yesterday to Chile 4-1, I don't think this is the last that we have heard of them.

I love the Internet, and, with sites such as Ustream and Justin.tv, I can view live matches right on my laptop. No more televisions for me!
However, I can’t take the laptop everywhere, and there were quite a few times during World Cup 2010 that I had to miss a few matches because I was out and about.
Well, I know that I wasn’t alone, and Mobitv has created the perfect solution. The company brings live content to a broad range of mobile devices. This past summer they provided a large number of American soccer fans with the opportunity to view 100 million minutes of World Cup soccer coverage.
I perused Mobitv’s blog today, and I noticed that they give their customers a heads up on the live sports programming for each week. If you are a Premier League fan, you can catch Arsenal vs. Blackpool on Saturday at 7:00 a.m. courtesy of ESPN Mobile.
