Ghana also went out in like manner in the 2010 edition, perhaps it is not that Africans do not have the talent to win, it is just the lack of concentration in the dying minutes, and we have seen it today as Egypt, African’s first team to play in Russia failed to get a crucial one point as they gifted Uruguay an avoidable free-kick that resulted in a 90th minute Jose Gimenez goal for Uruguay, hereby losing the match a goal to nothing.
