Bad Opening games for African nations at the World Cup

African nations at the World Cup

Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Ivory Coast and Nigeria all qualified for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.  After the opening group games has been completed, osaseye look at the individual African nations and how they have all performed in their Groups.

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. 

In total of the five African teams who represent Africa in this summer's World Cup: Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Ivory Coast and Nigeria have all started poorly. Ivory Coast got off to a good start and will be looking up for their next game against Colombia.
