Nat Sot Embattled goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar has taken his place in his country's team for the African Cup of Nations. It's his first major game since the allegations that he deliberately threw matches for bribes. He's playing for his home country of Zimbabwe, against Zaire. All eyes were on goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar when he ran out for his country in Harare Football fans in his home country of Zimbabwe were delighted to see their hero in his national kit. He was cleared on Saturday by the world football authority FIFA to play. FIFA came to the decision after examining a preliminary report by the English Football Association. The English tabloid newspaper "The Sun" alleged last week that Grobbelaar had taken bribes to fix matches, both for his former club - Liverpool - and for Southampton, the team he currently plays for. Earlier, FIFA had said it could ban the goalie if the F-A's report was damning. Since he arrived in Zimbabwe Grobbelaar has denied the allegations. And he added that they'd be unlikely to unsettle his game. There was a party atmosphere at the national sports stadium, with cheerleaders and a band. Some of the crowd chanted "Up with Bruce, down with Sun. The only pressure from fans in Harare is to stop any goals from Zaire and help Zimbabwe through to the next round of the African Cup of Nations. And in soaring temperatures, it was clearly thirsty work.

Alan Newman how are you? Let me secondly ask you this question....how are you on this page watching this video. Thirdly can you define a terrorist country and I will show you the crimes against humanity done by your own nations. At this point in time all countries have shed blood, this is the prime crime or are you living in a box? What about you who do you play for? So which countries are non terrorist let us see the Alan Newman draft. ....Go away you uneducated and unschooled child. Don't ever want to hear of you again. Seriously how are you concerned with this video. Ever heard Grobelar tell about the terrorist incident he experienced while playing in your country. Look it up. Yet another uneducated western child with no moral values. Dont reply this because all reply by-pass my inbox into the junk bin.
