South American players are scattered globally and face tougher travel schedules than African players yet look at how well they do at the WC. African footy is a reflection of the continent itself.


Spot On!!!!
We keep making unreasonable excuses for our failures

Some CEers think more spots would lead to different results. They are absolutely delusional. We cant even send 5 good teams to the WC because there aren't 5 good teams on the continent. Increasing CAFs allocation would reinforce how bad we are. North and South America punch above their weight at the WC while Africa and Asia are just there to fill in the numbers. Mexico for instance is comparable to the likes of Nigeria and Egypt in a number of regards yet its their birth right to advance out of the WC group stage while the latter are basket cases.

The mentality of trying to get something for nothing (trying to reap where one did not sow) is what is keeping Africa back. Africans think they can get away with not learning the fundamentals or paying attention to fine detail. There are always stories of late nights, voodoo visits, age cheating, etc. on the part of Africans. This makes them fall short in big tournaments like the World Cup.
In addition, those who dominate in African footie mostly come from poor educational backgrounds. Without the training that comes with properly education, for example to keep a cool head when presented with a scoring chance, Africans shoot wildly in the final third of the field, or sometimes tackles in the penalty box with an alarming disregard for the consequences. As a result their conversion rate of chances is lower than other contingents. They also concede more dangerous free kicks, including penalties.

Our problems stems from POVERTY
Even the best African coach will not win Zilch with the best African team

Until we get our economic life in order, our football will continue to fail

more teams improve your chances of 2nd round qualification.

Europe has 2 teams in almost every group and that improves their chances

More spots will lead to different results. It gives you more opportunities.

Winning is not just about having players and good coaching. There's an element of luck as well. The luck of what group you are drawn into, the luck of the sequence of games, the in-game luck.

Even when the luck breaks for you, we someone find a way to let off-field problems drail and distract us. And you then have people coming here to tell us that we are not good enough. We just haven't had a team where everything has aligned perfectly.
