How long for African teams to bring the cup to Africa? The task is set for Ghana, Cameroon, Nigeria, Algeria and Ivory Coast to represent the continent now that they know who they will be playing, and this task arguably is the tough one. .Whatever the situation might be it is time to do something. Last world cup 2010 in South Africa, there was a disappointment, missed of the opportunity and failed to meet the expectation of the continent. This time without complacency African players should say to themselves this is our time for the Europeans are excluding themselves already because they have never wont in American continent therefore they will not win it.
African team should not give chance to Brazil who are apparently the favourite but relaying on one person Naymar (Barcelona) or Oscar (Chelsea) and moreover we should not give a chance to other South America team Argentina with Messi (Barcelona) and Uruguay. Who African team plays against should not be a problem in this tournament, but heat humidity and travel will be the main problem but African must face it and deal with it for it has been a long awaiting situation: - winning the World Cup for Africa.
Cameroon: - Cameroon have been to seven World Cups but lost all three of their group games in South Africa in 2010 The Indomitable Lions have been to more World Cups than any other African nation and were the first from the continent to reach the quarter-finals in 1990.
Nigeria:- African champions Nigeria will be pleased with their draw at their fifth finals. They face Iran before taking on Bosnia-Hercegovina and will finish against Argentina as they attempt to reach the Last 16, as they did in both 1994 and 1998. The African champions also have the advantage of having experienced the conditions in Brazil before, having taken part in the Confederations Cup earlier this year.
Algeria : - Algeria have been given a tricky group and open against a Belgium side that has a vast array of talent, The Desert Foxes then face South Korea and Belgium as they aim to get to the knock-out stages for the first time.
Ghana: - Ghana are at their third straight finals and have made it past the group stages on both their previous appearances - but they face some quality opposition in Brazil. In South Africa four years later, a missed penalty in the dying minutes of their quarter-final against Uruguay saw them fail to become the first ever African side to reach the last four.
Ivory Coast: - Ivory Coast will be happier with their draw at their third consecutive finals. This time around they play Japan, Colombia and Greece and they will have high hopes they can progress from the group for the first time.
