World Cup 2022: Morocco’s Performance Can ‘Galvanise’ African Football – Mosengo-Omba

Morocco’s success in becoming the first African team to reach the World Cup semi-finals can “galvanise” the continent, according to one of African football’s top officials.

The Atlas Lions beat Portugal 1-0 on Saturday to make history, and will now face defending champions France in the last four in Qatar on Wednesday (19:00 GMT).

However, Veron Mosengo-Omba, the general secretary of Confederation of African Football (Caf), says more investment and resources must be made available for other countries to match the achievement by the North Africans.

“Morocco show it is possible for Africa to shortly have more teams in the World Cup semi-final, and even in the final,” Mosengo-Omba told BBC Sport Africa.

“The Moroccan result will, for sure, galvanise the entire continent. But galvanising and dreaming is not enough to grow [the game] and make African football more competitive to win the World Cup.
