World Cup Debate: Can African Teams Bounce Back from Their Early Setback In Brazil?



After the first round of matches at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the five African representatives at the tournament have only been able to amass 4 points, scoring 4 goals, conceding  6, in a total of 5 matches.

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon put up a dismal performance against Mexico and lost 1-0. The Black Stars of Ghana despite a spirited fight against the USA, lost 2-1. The Super Eagles who played the easiest opponent of the lot stuttered to a goalless draw against Iran. The Desert Foxes of Algeria could not hold on to their lead against Belgium and ended losing 2-1.

The Elephants of Ivory Coast came from a goal down to beat Japan 2-1 to give Africa the only victory so far in the tournament.

Going by this performance, do you think African teams can still make meaningful strides in this tournament?
