Drogba gives Verdict on African Teams following Senegal’s Ouster

African football has suffered a “big step back” after Senegal’s exit sealed the continent’s worst World Cup showing for 36 years, says Didier Drogba.

Senegal became the first team in World Cup history to go out on the fair play rule after losing to Colombia.

 

Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia had already fallen at the group stage.

 

“Africa is going to be successful one day but we need to think again how we approach these big competitions,” said former Ivory Coast striker Drogba.

 

No team from Africa has advanced beyond the quarter-finals at a World Cup.

 

However, since 1982 – when Algeria and Cameroon went out at the group stage – at least one country from the continent has made it to the knockout stage. Until now.

In Russia, African teams have managed just three wins and lost 10 in 15 attempts.
