They have zero wins bro! I don't understand the chest beating.

I would rather see Africa do well as a whole rather than individual countries humbled. I don't think I mentioned Nigeria even once. You're the one who is making my post about Naija, not me.
No one is beating chests. We’re simply telling you that the three games played by africa so far don’t provide any factual basis for your assertions.
They have ZERO wins is as FACTUAL as it gets.
North America will have 0 wins if Canada loses this match and that’s a fact.

After three games. They will play a minimum of 15. There is such a thing as coming too soon. Be patient lad, get some decent stats before analysing.

Apart from Ecuador who got to the play the great Qatar, non of the Americas have won either... One of them lost to Saudi Arabia and another shipped 7 goals without response. Are you about the propose the same for the Americas, maybe a team of Pulisic, Messi and Ochoa?

Give it a rest.

Correct! It is 9 or possibly 10.

Bushboy,

Let's see the end of the first round before reaching conclusions. Granted it isn't looking good so far even for Argentina, but there are two more rounds of games left before going to the next stage.

No thank you. Work hard and improve your team when you fail. Looking for an easy way out is trash.

Definitely think this is a good suggestion, just not for Africans, but for North America - Mexico, Canada and USA should field one team in the future.

FIFA World Cup is a football tournament meant only for countries that qualified. Is world football festival of the best. Come show your style of football against other countries. A day is coming when an African team will be crowned 👑. Gradually we are getting there.... Maybe you (Bushboy) is trying to suggest to FIFA that they should organize FIFA Intercontinental football tournament where each continents will be asked to gather their Stars (All-star) for a world football challenge...

I wonder which country in a continent that wins the cup will keep it.😁

Has anyone seen Bushboy? He’s oddly not around.

Maybe because Morocco has won the group that includes two of the semi-finalise from the last WC?

Maybe Belgium and Denmark should not play individually anymore; or maybe because they are Oyinbo doesn’t count.

Meanwhile, Mexico gone home, Canada no points, US sneaking through. I still think N America is the region that should just come as a combined team.

waka-man,

Why rain on Bushboy's parade? There are several persons on this CE who believe that African football is the pits despite signs all along about the ability of these nations to compete, in spite of the ridiculous FIFA rating system which disadvantages any nation that is not in Europe and South America.,

EII,

In another thread, I emphasized how FIFA is t an organization that's committed to fairness. Colombia, which did not make the World Cup is ranked 17 th, above Senegal. Iran is ranked above Morocco at 20th. South Korea is ranked above Tunisia, Ghana and Cameroon at 28th. Yes indeed, the FIFA rankings are a huge joke❗️


Cheers.
