Africa had five seats for the World Cup Russia 2018. Morocco, Tunisia, Senegal, Nigeria and Egypt were the five African countries that achieved their passport to the World Cup and five, They have fallen eliminated in the first round. A situation not seen since the World Cup in Spain 1982 and is that at least 36 years, at least there was an African representative in the knockout stages.
Not only that and that Egypt had one of the stars of the World, Mohamed Salah, and Morocco which came after more than a year without losing a game, They failed to win any match in the group stage. Tunisia managed to win the last game to Panama, the worst team of the tournament. Nigeria stroked it with his fingertips, but the goal of Marcos Rojo after the game gave the classification to Argentina and left the Nigerians at the gates of the eighth.
But certainly for bleeding was the case in Senegal, that tie around with Japan left out by simply by having two cards more. As early elimination of the African teams further fuels the controversy of the squares spread to South America and Africa. And is that although the football level is much higher in South America, Africa has 5 fixed and South America squares 4 and a choice of play-offs you have to play against Oceania representative.
But nevertheless, of the 5 representatives who have come to Russia for the South American continent, four have gone round (Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia) while Peru who entered the repechage was the only one left out in the previous league. No doubt the controversy will continue served.
