Five of the best… Football websites

Goal.com is great for international football news. (SUPPLIED)

By Rachel McArthur

In honour of the 2010 African Cup of Nations, we bring you our top five websites for all things football related.



This international website, which also has an Indian and Arabic edition, is great for breaking news – be it actual news stories or rumours.

Goal.com is especially a good read throughout the build-up to and during transfer windows, thanks to its 'Transfer Zone', which combines stories from press outlets across the world.

The forum is worth checking out for debates.



Although it features news stories from across the world, Yallakora really comes into its own with its coverage of Arabic football tournaments, particularly the UAE, Egyptian, Moroccan, Kuwaiti and Tunisian leagues.
