Arab teams are awful as well teams in the  CONCACAF region.

 

Plus African teams are playing catch up 

You have Africans playing for European nations.

Nigeria were unlucky(A failed CF in La Liga who had five good months in the Prem is now playing in China cost them)

Senegal ( extremely unlucky to go out based on yellow cards)

Morocco outplayed Spain,Portugal,Iran just didn’t have the number 9

As for the other two nations the less said the better

For me african teams always seem to  be good in the middle of the park but in the final third they are trash. They also always seem to have the worst goalkeepers.

Africa had a better showing last world cup, Algeria and Nigeria both to knockout stage, Algeria almost took out Germany.

I don't know why African teams don't do better, maybe cos through the year we generally only play dead African teams to qualify for Afcon?

If Algeria had Benzema, Nasri, Fekir, Mbappe etc to go with Mahrez, Brahimi, Feghouli would they become challengers? Or if morocco had Fellaini, Chadli, El Haddadi, or Tunisia had Ben Arfa, Ben Yedder, Khedira?

Probably goes a lot deeper, too much politics and corruption involved.

No conspiracy theorist but Africa deff gets the short straw with FIFA.

Think it goes a bit deeper than worrying about players that weren’t born in Africa playing for African countries. 

For me there always seems to be a naievity when it comes to things like game management.

The biggest factor is our players representing European nations 

Africans playing for European countries is the main factor(these are not your average Africans these are key players for European Nations it’s not only Africa who are suffering from this its the Caribbean nations as well).

France,Belgium as usual the biggest beneficiaries.

Europe stays exploiting Africa and rest of the world.

 

TB listed a small minority so I am going to break it down 

 

Manuel Fernandes-Cape Verde

Joao Mario-Angola

William Carvalho-Angola

Martin Braithwaite-Guyana

Pione  Sisto-Uganda

Mathias Zanka Jorgensen-Gambia 

Yussuf Poulsen-Tanzania

Kimpembe-DR Congo

Varane- Martinique 

Umtiti-Cameroon

Pogba-Guinea 

Lemar-Guadeloupe 

Mbappe- Cameroon/Algeria

Dembele-Senegal/Martinique/Mali

Tolisso-Togo

Kante-Mali

Matuidi-Angola/DR Congo

Mandanda-DR Congo

Rami-Morocco

Fekir-Algeria

Mendy-Senegal 

Sidibe-Mali

Akanji-Nigeria

Embolo-Cameroon

Zakaria-DR Congo

Mvogo-Cameroon

Boateng-Ghana

Khedira-Tunisia 

Rudiger-Sierra Leone

Thelin-DR Congo

Kompany-DR Congo

Witsel-Guadeloupe 

Fellaini-Morocco

Lukaku-DR Congo

Boyota-DR Congo

Tielemans-DR Congo

Dembele-Mali

Chadli-Morocco

Batshuayi-DR Congo

Sterling-Jamaica

Welbeck-Ghana

Alli-Nigeria 

Loftus Cheek-Guyana

/

Then you add the ones on standby

Ben Yedder-Tunisia

Lacazette-Guadeloupe 

Martial-Guadeloupe 

Sane-Senegal

Another huge reason is the slots allocated 

Europe get 13 slots (sometimes two teams in one group ) out of 50 

Africa get 5 slots out of 53 

Joao Havelenge done Africa dirty at the time it looked like he was doing Africa a favour but he really wasn’t.

I guessing in 2026 

one more slot for Africa and another 8 for Europe

African qualification is mad, literally cannot make one mistake or your campaign is finished

Btw there are 9 slots come 2026

So many factors

Comical levels of corruption, naivety, stupidity, juju, tribalsim, worshipping foreigners, the ACN being initially held in the middle of the season, top "young" players lying about their ages so when their peaks actually come they're already grandads, lack of proper infrastructure etc. etc. 

Hopefully ACN now being in summer and Europeans becoming more and more racist will pursuade some of these boys to play for di motherland.

Martial             Lemar

          Lacazette

Guadeloupe front line coulda been a madness.

It's my dream to see a Carib or African nation get all their allocated players.

But this shit starts at home with the parents.

My son will have to play for Jamaica.

The treatment of Barnes and Sterling should make it an easy sell for any parent tbh.

The Cricket team was made before most countries got independence init.

Now it wouldn't really make sense politically.

Fuming still.

Might as well happen... Whats the point of just being there to make up numbers in qualifying? Have to try and compete outchea. Talent pool in and people descending from the islands is staggering.

Would definitely attract more people to play as well.

If that ever happened they (england fa) and other european nations would probably just start dishing out competitive caps just to block them with no intention of keeping them long term

 

Thankfully zaha saw sense and we can only hope others do to in the future

Seen a lot of players listed 

would a single one of them have made it pro if they had grown upnin africa ?

is it not the coaching in europe that got them to where they are at ???
