When we think of such instances, we recall the match between Senegal and France, when the underdogs outsmarted the favourites of the World Cup in 2002.

However, as time passed, fewer African countries qualified for the World Cup. Countries from the continent, which has produced legends such as Roger Milla, George Weah, and Didier Drogba, are yet to reach the World Cup final.

The irony is that several world-class players are African immigrants, having established themselves in other countries.

The outcome would have so different had played for African countries.

Regardless, African countries qualified for the World Cup, and some even advanced to the knockout stages.

Here are some of the African nations that have impressed the footballing world at the biggest stage.

Morocco were considered underdogs, and to make their World Cup journey even more complicated, they were placed in the Group of Death, which included England, Poland, and Portugal.

That didn’t stop the African nation from pursuing their dreams, as they drew with Poland and England before defeating mighty Portugal in their biggest win in football history.

However, their good fortune ran out when they were eliminated from the tournament after losing to eventual runners-up West Germany.
