FIFA not happy about African teams early exit from World Cup

FIFA president Gianni Infantino has expressed his dismay that Africa failed to secure a place in the 2018 World Cup knock- out stages. 
All five African teams exited this year’s competition in the group stages. Nigeria and Senegal both had hopes going into their final games but the Super Eagles missed out after conceding a late goal to Argentina while the Teranga Lions failed after losing narrowly to Colombia.

He said “Of course, the World Cup is for the whole world and the African teams were very, very close at the end. An Asian team made it, an African didn't  but I think they will be ready soon for the next one.”
