World Cup 2018: African football going backwards – Drogba

Posted by

Former Ivory Coast striker, Didier Drogba, says African football has suffered a “big step back”, after Senegal’s exit sealed the continent’s worst World Cup showing for 36 years.

Senegal became the first team in World Cup history, to go out on the fair play rule after losing to Colombia on Thursday

Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia had already fallen at the group stage.

“Africa is going to be successful one day but we need to think again how we approach these big competitions,” Drogba said on BBC’s Match of the Day.

“It’s a big step back.

“I also think it is a chance for all the African teams and for the African Confederation maybe to reconsider the strategy and how we want to go forward.

“What do we want to do in the next World Cup? We have the potential, we have the money to develop, but we need more than that.

“We need to have the consistency and the structure of the European teams and the South American teams.

“We are going to be successful one day but we need to think again how we approach these big competitions.”
