Morocco becomes the second African team to beat Brazil at senior level.
The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are the first African team to beat the five-time World Cup winners.

Corruption reduced Nigeria to a mere puppet. Our leaders who are not supposed to be leaders are there because of regional politics, religious bigotry, sectionalism, nepotism, and tribalism. See Morocco now thriving well. God gave Nigeria better human capital and abundant resources to be great but some useless uncultured humans moulded by the devil won’t let go of Nigeria. Nature will kill you if you don’t want peace and progress of Nigeria. God please help us.
Well said Tega Scott.
Morocco & Senegal……Africa’s most-dreaded and fearsome sides; none other comes close at the moment!!
Egypt, Ghana, CIV, Cameroon, Algeria, “UAR” and the likes can only watch from the periphery LOL
@Richie with due respect Senegal isn’t even near Morocco please. Senegal without Mane are fucking average. Tbh i will rate Ghana ahead of them going by Ghana performance at the last world cup. They were just unlucky to found themselves in that group of death yet they gave a good fight but fail to qualify bcos of their inexperience Coach and the team as a whole that put revenge mission ahead of next round qualification.
Most African teams are just average that’s honest truth and that’s the reason why we don’t make meaningful impact at the world cup.
As regards our own SE, make we fans just forget it otherwise person go get High BP. Until the NFF are ready to do the needful by hiring qualified Coaches that will be allowed to work with the best players we have without any form of interference, Give them good stadium with the best pitch to play their home matches, pay Coach Salary as at when due and players Match Bonus. abeg make we dey watch Champions League & other Europe domestic league o…My own advised.
As e be like this the 2nd leg, is either we lose again or get draw. I will just advised the players to play with caution and avoid injury. Most especially Osimhen that has the opportunity of winning serie A and Champions league and hopefully African best player.
While some nations are going from strength to strength, others are rewriting records last achieved 4 decades ago – losing 4 straight games.
GNB is even boasting to do a double over them. Shameful. Senegal a small nation are holders of 4 current trophies in football while some others are struggling to even be also ran.
Afcon 2023 already has favorites. Progressive minds.
