Does The African Continent Deserve 5 Spots At The Next Wc?

The simple and logical answer to this question is no.

  The continent had six teams this time, and zero made it to the 2nd round.

  Contrast that appalling performance with that of the

  Concacaf group with 3 teams sent and 2 standing a

   pretty good chance of winning their group b(Mexico, USA).

  Do you guys think Fiffa would be in the right to take away one

   spot from the continent and give it to the Concacaf region?

Well, in all fairness, Africa and Africans deserve better from their leaders in high and low places, including our FA leaders and players.

I think some teams, like Gabon, Egypt, and Tunisia were a bit unlucky not to be in this tournament-though they probably may have flopped- and those who went in 06, TOGO, ANGOLA, TUNISIA, GHANA, ICOAST, performed better than the 6 of today.

So what does FIFA do? Stop African football development further by reducing our numbers, allowing the same 5/6 spots, or probing/investigating African FA's for corruption?

So as for Africans, we deserve our spots, but not the performances,

Tough call.

True that. no one can accurately predict how Amodu would have performed at the world cup

to the topic. no, we don't deserve it. it should be given to continents who produce teams that are passionate and have the desire to WIN and

go far beyond the odd group stages or 2nd round

I don't love him, what i hate is the weak excuses that was given in firing him, Blatter even spoke about the way Africans are prone to changing coaches almost when the worldcup is about to start.

How would you know if Amodu would have flopped more than what Largerback is already doing?

My guess is, whatever corruption there is in those south American countries they keep it

out of Football. Or, at the very least, football has a limited exposure to it. Can't say the same

about the African countries.

I have no idea where this great love for Amodu is coming from. The guy is a mediocre coach.

Besides we all know that Nigeria's problem goes beyond coaching.

As for deserving the five spots, I'm almost certain Fifa is going to revisit this whole thing.

There's a good chance the six teams between them will have produced only 1 victory. Embarrassing.

Shame on Africa; they should go and find out from the South Americans how they play so well.

Yes we do, maybe with the help of FIFA stopping us from firing any coach that qualify us for the worldcup.

A coach who is fit enough to qualify a country to the worldcup is fit enough to lead them to the worldcup.

except if we have atleast 2 teams in the second round , you can bet that Fifa will reduce our slot to 4
