Patrice Evra, a former captain of France, has stated his desire for an African nation to win the World Cup.
In preparation for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Evra is travelling the continent, and he would love to see the trophy visit Africa for the first time.
Evra visited President Nana Akufo-Addo while she was in Ghana, one of the five African nations that will be in Qatar.
“Like I stated, my ambition is that one day an African team might win the World Cup. I’ll be here again; this is not my last visit. Thank you for having us; such a lovely country,” stated Patrice Evra.
He also said he wanted to improve the negative perception of Africa.
“My current dream is to improve how people perceive Africa. I’ve visited Senegal, Cameroon, Nigeria, and Ghana because of this, Patrice Evra continued.
Africa will be represented at this year’s World Cup by Ghana, Senegal, Morocco, Cameroon, and Tunisia beginning on November 20.
Only Senegal, who will play the Netherlands, Qatar, and Ecuador in Group A, is seen as having a serious chance of moving on to the second round by African commentators, who are gloomy about the other four.
Tunisia is either in Group D with the reigning champions France, Denmark, and Australia or in Group F with Belgium, Canada, and Croatia along with Peru and Morocco.
Ghana is in Group H with Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea, while Cameroon is in Group G with Brazil, Serbia, and Switzerland.
No African team has ever advanced past the quarterfinals of a World Cup. Ghana, Senegal, and Cameroon have all come close to making history in prior editions.
