There's no doubt about that. Those of us in the southern part of Africa have never produced anything close. They can win this thing!

No. They aren’t. They’ve done well but saying they are the best team ever is hyperbole.

Nigeria actually produced the best African team ever - even the bench was star studded and couldn’t even get a foot in

Unfortunately, trams are measured by the results they produce not what they have on paper or sitting on the bench. Nigeria has never even won a game in the knockout stage of the WC.

At the WC, it's not even close.

People, they got to the semis conceding only one goal which was an only goal.

Top notch performance dispatching teams like Spain, Portugal and Belgium while at it.

I am a Nigerian, loved our 1994 squad and followed that team right from the core from 1988 to when they made their WC debut. They were not as tactically disciplined as this Moroccan side and the result bear witness.

I don't know about the severity of the injuries to key players, but goodness I hope they have 2 more wins in stock.

Nigeria - watch and learn.

They are the MOST successful African Team at this WC. No more no less.

They should win the AFCON to be the best AFRICAN team :taunt:

uncle,

I know you love for African football, teams etc, in your opinion which was and is the best ever African side. I truly am interested in your opinion and why you think they are better than this Moroccan side.

I speak as a Nigerian and with all my biases. In my opinion and as much as it pains me to admit it, at the WC level the Ghanians, Senegalese and Cameroonians have achieved better than we have and now the Moroccans have surpassed them all taking this stuff to a different level.

So pray brother, seriously, which is the best African side in your opinion?

Best African team ever by a mile.

They are at the semis and coached by a shon of the shoil.

Kudos.

what you wrote is pure rubbish. South Korea made the last 4 in 2002, they have only 2 AFC championship. Morocco last won a championship in 1972 or 76. They've not won anything yet. This Moroccan team will not even defeat Egypt, talk less of the SE



most CAF teams do match up very well with European teams.. so give us a break with this your bandwagoner.. Bulgaria made the last 4 and got spanked badly in the semis

What you should talk about is how good their coach is instead of talking down great CAF teams like Nigeria, Senegal, Cameroon , Algeria,and even that yeye ghana ..... who've all made the second round and the Q-finals losing by PKs and every loss was in ET

They are the best CAF team ever. It’s SIMPLE. Please don’t mention useless Nigerian teams in the same sentence as this Morocco. No Nigerian team in History has shown 50% of the discipline on display from this Morocco. NONE. All CAF teams need to take a lesson from this Moroccan team. They would have won today by 3-0 if not for some very atrocious finishing. So happy 1-0 was still enough to clinch the semi.

Not the same Morocco 🇲🇦 at the last AFCON. New coach, new mentality and belief, new players (Ziyech and Boufal)! This Morocco with their defense can win this World Cup.

Exactly, this is how it is supposed to be said...if not for teams like Cameroon, CAF won't have had 3 spots, if not for Nigeria CAF won't have had 5 spots.. instead of them saying wow CAF football is really up there, these jokers here are beating down other teams who've made it to the world cup . This is why they keep yabbing CAF football, saying oh nah only one good team dey there

why can't CAF have 4 teams in the Semis, Cameroon and Nigeria won back to back Olympics.. etc.. there are many very good teams in Africa, who would even do better than Morocco .
yes this is historic and i am very happy for Morocco , but make we no dey hear rubbish comments from some hurt Nigerians because the SE has been rubbish since **** took over

No doubt,

I still believe we underachieved and it was primarily an issue of too many egos and indiscipline.

I remain a big fan of Stephen Keshi, but to those who followed that team, his influence alongside a number of others was not as positive as it ought to have been.

You may recall the controversy about Chidi Nwanu's call up in the build up to the WC, the allegations about certain players not wanting to pass to Yekini.

The big controversy about changing hotels before the Italy match.

That team/squad had all it took on the talent level to go all the way but like many things Nigeria, we shot ourselves in the foot with our off field antics.

You know something in life my brother, opportunities truly favour the prepared and they do not come by as easily as we'd like to believe.

We are almost 30 years and we are yet to build a squad of players of that calibre. Meanwhile our 2014 team matched the same 1994 Eagles achievements with arguably less profiled players.

To answer the comment, on the WC stage, this is the best African team - Morocco. Let's not do what the English do and downplay the achievements of others while overplaying their own..its 2022 and dem no go let us hear about 1966 - which is the reason I hope they lose tonight or at the very least not win this things. I digress.

Cameroon of 1990 could argue they are the best African side of 'all time' - they won the AFCON 2 years before their Italian 90 antics. They did crash out if I recall correctly at the first round in Algiers.

Why am I impressed by the Moroccans so far, a goal conceded en route the semis (Nigeria by the 2nd round in 94 and 98 had conceded 4 goals). The Cameroonians had done the same by the time they got to the 2nd round/quarters, the Ghanians and Camroonians were not that far of either.

Unlike an earlier comment in response to my comments, some of us have followed African football for a very long time and are not just bandwagonners, this is a very impressive Moroccan side.

Will they repeat this stuff at AFCCON, the records indicate they are less likely to to. Only Cameroon in 1984 and Algeria in 2019 have won the AFCON after a creditable WC showing earlier. Even the great Algerian side of the earlier 1980s had to wait until 1990 before they could win it.

Granted we were not able to defend our title in 96, so that skews the statistics.

The one thing I know as a Nigerian is, if we achieved what the Moroccans have at the WC, many Nigerian fans will spin it like ' we are not local champions'.

Our best at this stage has been eclipsed by others and our best at the African continent does not match those of the Cameroonians or Egyptians or even the bloody midgets granted they last won anything before Betamax but I digress.

Morocco has surpassed anything in African football, so organised and disciplines, they did not give Spain, Portugal a sniff, they were reduced to pot shots and trial and error, if I was the Portuguese coach, I would told them in the 2nd half to allow Morocco on the ball and hit them on the break

I very much respect your views and knowledge and as a friend...but I am ready to conclude Morocco is the best African side ever.

:)

A WV semifinal speaks volumes, no sugar coating. I am sure we will revisit this discussion a lot...but really quickly: who could possibly have been better?

100% agree.

Quantity, quality, achievement.

Plus, to my eye test, the Morocco Atlas Lions are the real deal.

They will give any team in the final a torrid time. They are capable of going to the final.
