Africa must win World Cup soon!!

says new CAF boss Motsepe: New Confederation of African Football (CAF) president Patrice Motsepe raised the bar Tuesday for national teams in the continent by insisting one of them must win the #WorldCup soon.

“An African team must win the World Cup in the near future,” said the 59-year-old South African billionaire at a #pressconference in #Johannesburg.

Motsepe was elected unopposed last Friday to lead trouble-torn #CAF after a two-year ban over “governance issues” prevented Malagasy Ahmad Ahmad seeking re-election for a second stint.

The #mining magnate promised to quit after his four-year term if CAF “does not make real progress” under his #leadership.

“We must stop being excessively pessimistic and negative (about the World Cup), there is no #continent that has succeeded by dwelling on its failures.”

No #African team has gone beyond the quarter-finals of the World Cup, and only #Cameroon (1990), #Senegal (2002) and #Ghana (2010) have got that far.
