4 African nations qualified for this year’s FIFA U20 World Cup, but only one has managed to make it to the quarterfinals.
African champions Senegal were eliminated in the first round after failing to win any of their 3 group stage matches.
Despite winning just one match, Tunisia managed to make it out of Group E only to lose 4-1 against Brazil in the round of 16.
Then The Gambia who finished first in Group E after beating the likes of France and Honduras eventually suffered elimination at the hands of Uruguay tonight.
This leaves Nigeria as the only African nation still active in this competition, with the Flying Eagles already in the last 8 after beating Argentina last night.
Following their statement wins over Italy and now Argentina, it’s safe to say that Ladan Bosso’s side are the dark horses in this tournament, but can they go on to become the second African country to win the U20 World Cup after Ghana?
