Bouna Named to Senegal Squad

He did it. Rapids goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul has been named in the final 23-man squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana. This news more than makes up for the fact there are no current Rapids players in the recently announced US national squad. And, unlike EPL teams, Bouna will go with the full support of the Rapids given that the tournament is not happening in the middle of the MLS season. They may start to worry, though, if the Senegal keeper puts in some good performances and gets noticed by European clubs willing to spend a bit of cash. To be honest, the Rapids star is not likely to get much playing time given that veteran Tony Sylva will continue to be the number one. But who knows with injuries or loss of form? Congratulations to the fan favorite. I look forward to expansive coverage of this momentous event on the local news tonight. Here's a link to the BBC story.
