2018 FIFA World Cup : Will An African Team Reach Semi-finals For The First Time? by obafemee80(m): 1:41am On Jun 14, 2018


Teams from African countries hasn't advance beyond the quarter-finals let alone lift the World Cup despite been the second most-populated continent and a place where football is king and also worshipped .

Nigeria will be competing at their sixth FIFA world cup finals in Russia while three teams from sub-Saharan Africa ,Cameroon in 1990, Senegal 2002 and Ghana in 2010 have qualified and eliminated at the quarter-finals.

Nigeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco and Senegal are African representatives in this years competition.

Could 2018 be Nigeria's year of reaching semifinals, final or even lifting the GOLD CUP?

A note to the FTC:

See, neither France nor Germany will lift the trophy.


With respect to lifting the world cup as Africans, we know we are not there yet. But may I remind us that "impossible" is just a word.

Anything, I repeat, anything can happen.

Well, as a matter of fact, an African team will go far this time.

Who knows, maybe the Super eagles of Nigeria

Like I said, "Anything is possible"

Yes we can!


The Super Eagles soaring high,

The Pharaohs showing their might,

The Carthage Eagles ready to pounce,

The Teranga Lions and the Atlas Lions can't wait to devour


We are Africa and we fear nobody!

What stopped Ghana from beating Uruguay that year and advance to the semi final? Hope it's not a norm that no African team will go beyond the quarter finals

I am with you. With the Ghanian team's form in 2010, they could have advanced to the finals if not for some random factors, and maybe lift the trophy
