Amuneke To Discuss Africa’s World Cup Woes In Rabat


Former Super Eagles winger, Emmanuel Amuneke is heading to Rabat, Morocco this weekend, to attend a conference organised by Confederation of African Football (CAF) to discuss reasons behind poor performances by the continent’s five representatives at this year’s World Cup in Russia.

The 1994 African Footballer of The Year, who was a member of FIFA’s technical study group at Russia 2018, said he will be in Rabat for a CAF World Cup workshop to analyse why all five African teams at Russia 2018 failed to go past the group stage.

Ahead of the trip, the former Sporting Lisbon of Portugal and Barcelona of Spain star said he believes the congress will lay ground for better days ahead of Africa at the World Cup, as he [personally believes the continent has much to offer moving forward.

Amuneke disclosed: “I will be attending a conference mainly to discuss the five representatives of Africa to the World Cup and the way forward for African football.

“I believe there is still room for Africa to hit it big in world football, we just have to get the basics right which is right attitude and mentality to work. The talent is there already and so we can push to the next level.”
