The stage for the 2022 FIFA World Cup is getting set, and we’re ready to experience one of the best sporting events in the world today. It has undoubtedly become one of the most anticipated sports competitions globally. If you’re even an experienced game slot online player, you’ll see that the FIFA World Cup is represented everywhere.
As we head to Qatar in November, teams from different continents have sealed their spot in the starting 32, and five teams from Africa will be representing the continent to bring home the glory. These teams have passed through a rigorous qualifiers campaign, and they’ve made it out by sticking to their guns. So, let’s take a look at these impressive teams from Africa.
Undoubtedly, the best team from Africa this year. From the start of the qualifiers to the end and the AFCON competition in-between, Senegal has been one of the best teams on the African continent. They remain a formidable side, and interestingly, they are still a relatively young side with many budding young superstars with careers in Europe.
Most of the players on the team have experience playing against some of the best players in the world. Therefore, they understand what it takes to play on the big stages. And without any doubt, Sadio Mane would be one of their top players. He would remain captain, and Eduoard Mendy would also be the number one choice to man the post.
We expect a solid Senegalese team to fly to Qatar, and if they maintain their solid shape, they will go far in the competition. We look forward to what the team will bring to the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
After a disappointing outing in the AFCON, Ghana pulled all their strength against one of the best teams in Africa to qualify for the FIFA World Cup. Although many would not subscribe to their tactics, it was genius, given how they could maintain a solid shape throughout the 180 minutes of the tie.
Although they qualified because of the away goal rule, it was an impressive show as they stopped the Super Eagles of Nigeria from scoring more than one goal. As a result, we will be having the Black Stars of Ghana represent the continent in Qatar, and we expect them to want a repeat of the 2010 FIFA World Cup and maybe this time make it into the last four.
Africa is filled with some tactical teams that understand how to take the game to their opponents, and one of them is Morocco. The team has all the makings to become a formidable side, and even though they will be missing their talisman, Hakim Ziyech, they can still have an impressive time in Qatar.
Morocco is never an easy team to beat, and it was obvious in their qualifying campaign; even though they didn’t reach where they would love in the AFCON, it wasn’t all bad. They still had an exciting outing, and after qualifying for the World Cup, they can find a way to improve their playing style and reach a further stage in Qatar.
They were certainly impressive in the AFCON competition. However, they couldn’t do it when it mattered the most. The team fell to a terrible penalty shootout against Egypt in the Semifinals. As a result, it will remain a bad memory on the players’ minds. They were formidable from the start, and many saw them make the final against Senegal, but it wasn’t meant to be.
They have Qatar to regroup and fix the lapses in their team, and if they do that, there is a good chance that Cameroon will make it far in the competition. They sure have a deep squad that is ready to take things to the next level, and if they are also lucky, they might break their quarterfinals record and make it to the last four.
Tunisia is another team from the North to make it to the FIFA World Cup this year. The team hasn’t been as good as they were in the past. However, they had enough to see off Mali in the knockout qualifying rounds. But they don’t seem to have the squad to do a lot in Qatar. Still, we can’t write them off just yet.
Although there is no standout star in the squad, they can still inflict damage on teams that cross their path. We will be on the lookout for this exciting team from Northern Africa, and we expect some exciting moments from them as they turn up to face some of the best teams in the World.
With three teams from the West and Two from the North, this year’s FIFA World Cup will have teams from only two regions on the continent. We expect to see a standout African team this year, and our eyes would be on Senegal and Cameroon as they have the best record and teams going into the competition.
