Super Eagles legend Austin Okocha has expressed fears on the chances of African representatives at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The continent will be represented at the Mundial by Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia, Ghana, and Cameroon.
The West African duo of Senegal and Ghana, as well as Central Africa’s Cameroon, are the only countries to have reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup.
While Okocha admitted that Senegal and Morocco have a chance to create one or two upsets, the former Paris Saint Germain midfielder feared the other three teams may be the whipping boys of their groups.
“It’s the first time that I’m not confident enough about Africa’s chances in the World Cup,” Okocha said, as per Carton Sport. “Maybe they can surprise us and do very well. If you look at Asia and North America, they seem stronger and more advanced than us. This means bad news for our football.
