They will play the Lions of Teranga will take off against Ecuador in their final match of the group stage on 29 November. This tournament was a challenge for Africa with Algeria, Cameroon and Ghana each failing to take home their opening games. Senegal was the only group who came within a win, losing 2-1 to Chile.

2. Why is it that nobody from the African teams has ever won their first match at the group stage?
A number of African countries made their debut appearances at the Qatar World Cup. They all were able to win their first match in their group. The reason for this could be several elements. This may be due to the contest. As there is a World Cup, which in the World Cup is the highest level of international football, African teams might not be able to compete with the best in the quality. This could be due to nervousness. Many of the teams, it was their first time on a big stage and they could have been shocked by the event. The other reason could be the lack of experience.
For African footballers, it was well worth waiting as the fifth African team in the 2022 Qatar World Cup scored the first goals. Egypt’s Mohamed Salah and Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen each found the the net in their initial games providing African fans something to cheer for in an event that has been difficult for the continent so far. We hope that Africa is able to continue its dominance in Qatar with two games remaining.
