And we try and respect a person's country of origin. Which is why announcers refer to this guy as Ronaldo, the PORTUGUESE player.
And this amazing player over here? Well announcers refer to him as Messi, the incredible ARGENTINIAN player.
So why on earth is Vincent Enyeama, and his many peers, constantly referred to as the AFRICAN player?
And what about Keisuke Honda, the Japanese player? I'm sure he isn't also representing countries like Lebanon, Jordan, and India while playing during the world cup. So why is he referred to as the Asian player?
It seems that the football announcers are quick to speak without being aware of the nuances of language, and the importance of conscientiousness.
