When will it be the year in which the Africans win a World Cup?

Surely, this is not it.

But 2018 can mark a before and after in the participations of that continent in the maximum sporting event if Senegal in 2002 and Ghana in 2010 did not already.

Yes Yes. I know. The beginning was not the best. But … Which candidate had a good debut?

I imagined it.

The analytical study and the quantitative analysis are very nice. They accompany the processes, although they do not always describe the state of the same.

Morocco had a large number of matches undefeated and lost to Iran through an own goal on the 90th minute. That specific action erases the statistics, but not the traces of development in a country’s soccer.

Enemy of numbers and lover of processes.

Division and style
The AFC (African Football Confederation) brought five representatives to Russia. All with spectacular equipment, although the common denominator determines otherwise.

In its own way, each team is very rich. French presence, young calls and very strong styles.

The teams from North Africa: Tunisia, Morocco and Egypt are very different physically from those from the South.

Less physical power, better treatment of the ball.

They compensate the size with good football. Something similar to what a Lionel Messi does.

Meanwhile, the South teams like Nigeria and Senegal, take advantage of the power of their players to the maximum point.

Faster, stronger and forceful pieces.

Three characteristics sufficient to renounce possession of the ball and carry damage to the opposing goal by counterattacks. And boy do they do it!

At the end of the day, the goal is the same: Surprise the world.

And the material starts to be promising.

Real aspirations?
Players with high prices, successful technicians, interesting images in eliminatory … But, really Can Africans have chances to qualify in the World Cup?

It’s still early; in the World Cup and in history.

The parity of the Cup can play in favor for some selections and against for others.

In the group of Egypt, the selection of Cúper has high probabilities to classify.

Unfortunately, Morocco (which missed the opportunity), Nigeria and Tunisia are not so sure.

Only one is missing and …

Watch out for Senegal and a romantic quarter-final in Russia!
