2022 World Cup: Okocha makes prediction about African countries at tournament

Former Nigeria captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has said African countries will struggle at the 2022 World Cup.

Okocha believes North American and Asian teams are playing better than African teams.

Senegal, Morocco, Cameroon, Tunisia and Ghana will fly the continent’s flag at the mundial.

“It’s the first time I’m not confident about Africa’s chances in the World Cup.

“If you look at Asia and North America, they seem stronger and more advanced than us. We were already 50 paces behind South America and Europe, and now North America and Asia seem to be ahead of us.

“We have hopes in Senegal and Morocco, they seem the strongest. Tunisia, Ghana and Cameroon seem to be a stepping stone for other teams to reach the knockout stages,” Cartonsport.com quoted Okocha as saying.
