German legend Miroslav Klose has come out to say African country will only win the FIFA World Cup if the continent has more slots like their European counterparts.
The Continent is allocated five out of the 32 slots, while World Cup power houses Europe and South America have 13 and five slots respectively.
Only three African countries have managed to get to the quarter-final of the Mundial event (Cameroon, Senegal, Ghana).
And according to Klose, the 2014 World Cup who is also the tournament’s all time leading goalscorer, posited that the five slots allocated to Africa limits the continent’s chances of winning it.
“There is no way Africa can win the World cup, unless FIFA brings balance to the number of teams that qualifies to the World cup. For now it is advantage to Europe and South America.
The slot for African teams is very bad. Only five teams in a world cup that has almost 13 European teams. If Black lives real Matter we should show it by actions in every institution not only by kneeling down.
We need to balance everything, no one must be considered superior than the other. Despite all the talent they have, but it would be absolutely impossible to go all the way to reach the World cup final with only five teams in the tournament, meanwhile other continents have more than five.” He concluded.
