The past week saw the first tangible 2010 World Cup legacy, Safa House, being handed over to the Local Organising Committee who will share it with Fifa until after the tournament's final game.

The R86 million building, with the funds coming from Fifa, was handed over to the new "tenants" by South African Football Association president Molefi Oliphant.

The state-of-the-art building will be brought to viewers through a camera tour and close-up shots of offices by the African Soccer Television show on SABC 1 Sports' Laduma programme on Sunday at 3pm.

This week's show features highlights from some of the leagues and tournaments around the continent and in Qatar.

First up is the Doha International Friendly Youth tournament, in which the South African boys managed to bring back bronze after beating the hosts, Qatar, 5-4 on penalties.

Highlights of their 1-0 loss to Egypt in the semifinal show how it was a case of so near and yet so far for the locals, especially after a missed penalty by Stanton Lewis.

Things are also hotting up in the Nigerian Premier League, as shown by the 3-0 thrashing former two-time African Champions League winners Enyimba handed to Akwa United.

Last weekend saw the kickoff of the 2007 African Champions League qualifying rounds, with Tanzania's Young Africans putting five past AJSM of the Comoros Islands, who replied only once and are out.

The game was a great welcome for former Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic, who is now in charge of Yanga.

Sapa-AFP reports that this game was reduced to one leg because the losers do not have a ground of international standard.
