the five African national teams have not separated from each other, with historic victories such as Cameroon vs Brazil, Tunisia for the first time for an African team, France vs Tunisia, and the eighth time between two African teams Senegal and Morocco advanced to the finals. and most notably the performance of Morocco’s Atlas Lions, who eliminated Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal past the quarter-finals to join the bottom of the World Cup – a first for African football.
With a duel against France, the World Cup final was also within reach. But injuries, fatigue and, as is so often the case with African teams, an unfavourable arbitration that stripped them of two undeniable penalties kept Morocco at this level.
The World Cup will celebrate its epilogue on Sunday 18 December 2022 with the coronation of Argentina’s Lionel Messi, who wore a third star on his shirt. The tournament was one of his most organizationally successful in the history of the World Cup, as well as the African continent’s most successful.
