On paper, it seems like most of the African Countries will win against their opponents only to succumb to a scoreless draw or lose their opening games with the exception of Ivory Coast. Ivory Coast kicked off their world cup campaign with a win over Japan. Algeria fell to their knees after taking the lead against Belgium. Cameroon lost to Mexico and will face Croatia for their next match which doesn't make it easy in a group including the world's favorite and host Brazil.
Ghana huffed and puffed at USA only to lose at the dying minutes. The African Champions who over 35% of fans were cheering to win their opening games and also a favorite to qualify from their group had a boring draw with Iran.
