They have also beaten 3 South American teams at this WC, Peru, Argentina and Uruguay. This must be a record for a European team at the WC. Something we have not been able to do in 6 attempts at the WC.

Well since 1930 (when it began) it's been officially called the World Cup and oh yes Egypt where African in 1934 although they also went out in he first round and didn't return till 1990 (in the same group as England) and again went out in first round just as they did this year :ohmy: (1990 the year Cameroon reached the last 8 losing to England).

Tunisia represented Africa in 1978 pretty well. They won 1 game and tied Germany.

Quote:
What do the World Cup semi-finalists all have in common? Immigration.
The Guardian

Be it Croatia’s hero hailing from Switzerland or the 50% of French and Belgian players with African ancestry, immigration is at the heart of each squad.

Pelé’s prediction that an African team would win the World Cup before the turn of the 21st century ended up wide of the mark, and this year’s tournament in Russia marked the first time since 1982 that none reached the knockout stages.

But while that disappointment has been hard to take for supporters of Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia, Tuesday’s semi-final between France and Belgium is proof of the enormous influence the sons of African immigrants have played in confirming European football’s place at the pinnacle of the global game.

In total, 23 players – exactly 50% – in Didier Deschamps’ and Roberto Martínez’s squads can trace their ancestry to Africa. In countries where the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development estimates that 6.8% and 12.1% respectively of the population is comprised of migrants, it is an astounding statistic that indicates just how important integration has been.

Just as France’s victory at the 1998 World Cup on home soil was hailed as a triumph for the “black, blanc, beur” side captained by Deschamps, the success of Kylian Mbappé – the son of a Cameroonian father and Algerian mother – and his cosmopolitan teammates has provided an emphatic rejoinder to bigotry at home. But if some critics of France have been silenced by superb performances, it had been a different story in Belgium until recently.

“When things were going well, I was reading newspaper articles and they were calling me Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian striker,” wrote the Manchester United forward in an article for the Players’ Tribune last month. “When things weren’t going well, they were calling me Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian striker of Congolese descent.”

In the squad where seven players can trace roots to the former Belgian colony, Lukaku and Vincent Kompany – whose father, Pierre, is a Congolese diplomat – have emerged as the figureheads for a group that has historically suffered from a terrible legacy.

It is noticeable that of the semi-finalists, Croatia have the most players born outside the country they represent, with 15.4%. Calling on children of migrants, such as Switzerland-born Ivan Rakitic and Mateo Kovacic, who grew up in Austria, is vital for a country with a population of just over 4 million to compete against some of the biggest nations on the planet.

So all those complaining about Nigeria seeking to recruit players born overseas really need to open their eyes. Times have changed... for the better.

Croatia nearly got Pulisic. He opted for the USA. We have our gunsights on anybody of Croatian heritage.

But regardless of where they are from, they are being brought up in the French system and the best make the French NT. We are going around picking from the leftovers of the ones that didn't make the cut in England, Germany, Netherlands etc...so their parent countries will always be better positioned than us as we are fighting for their leftovers while they are using the cream of the crop.

No, it's partly to do with timing. The English weren't happy when we took Iwobi - it wasn't the case of him not making the cut - he chose Nigeria over England. Same with Wilfred Zaha; these guys aren't left overs like Shola Ameobi.

The problem we face wrt England is their recent successes mean it will take even stronger and convincing arguments for youngsters like Ojo, Ejaria, Onomah, etc. to play for Nigeria.

Yes, this is exactly what countries with limited means or smaller populations and budgets will do to scout and secure talent.
