    With all their physical attributes, no African team has yet to win the big one, the World Cup.The things with the African teams is that they really lack discipline in one area or another. Defensive discipline. Offensive discipline. Mental discipline. Tactical discipline. And a lot of distraction. I have always said that once the African teams solve their discipline issues, they will win the World Cup. Look at Francafrica…..All African players going through the French system and educated with French discipline! Result, WC winner….

    Who is watching in 2019 March. I will never… never forget that day. The Super Eagles of Nigeria. Sweet memories. My country Burundi was in trouble, civil war! But we  celebrated the victory of Nigeria,  the victory of Africa till the morning. God bless Nigeria
