An African country deserves to win the World Cup –Samuel Eto’o

African football icon Samuel Eto’o asserts that a country from Africa should secure a World Cup victory given the abundant talent in the continent. Eto’o, a four-time recipient of the African Player of the Year award (in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2010), expressed this opinion in anticipation of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Speaking to SportBible’s Instagram account, the ex-Barcelona and Inter Milan standout emphasized that Africans have a greater abundance of football talents compared to their European counterparts.

“Africans have a lot of talent, Europeans a bit less. I don’t see why an African country will not win a World Cup. It’s one of the easiest things to do. It’s just a couple of football matches.”

Before the last world cup,  Eto’o predicted that the 2022 FIFA World Cup final would be an all-African contest.


“Cameroon will win the World Cup final against Morocco.”
