The Africa XI soccer team

World Cup winners France (or as they are known on this continent: the Africa XI) have 17 players in the French squad from ethnic minorities. That outnumbers the 11 black members of Parliament (out of 577).

Soccer players are becoming influential personalities the world over. I would like to see players in Europe, who are from ethnic minorities, and those from developing countries who play for UEFA clubs, speaking out and leading an onfield revolution. I'd like to see them do more to make the elite, the business owners and the rich people of Europe recognise the inequalities of the world.

I salute Lilian Thuram who has already made some progress in this regard.
