      Default World Cup win not impossible for African team, says Weah

      World Cup win not impossible for African team, says Weah

      By Henrique Almeida
      LUANDA, Nov 18 (Reuters) - George Weah, the former world soccer player of the year, believes an African team could win next year’s World Cup in South Africa.

      Africa has emerged as major source of talent, with players such as Liberian-born Weah, Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o playing for some of Europe’s leading clubs.

      And while an African team had never advanced beyond the quarter-finals of a World Cup, Weah said the 2010 tournament could change that.
      “We hope for that, it’s not impossible. It’s a difficult task but it’s not impossible,” Weah told reporters. “Ghana just won a junior world cup. Why not?”
      Ghana won the under-20 World Cup last month.

      Speaking to reporters after a news conference, Weah, who won European and World player of the year in 1995, said discipline and hard work were the keys to success.
      “Years ago, we couldn’t partake in the best player of Europe and the world. It happened. There is a high possibility that an African team can win a World Cup if it can prepare well.”

      Weah hoped that the new stadiums being built for the World Cup and the African Cup of Nations in Angola next year would lay the foundations for stronger African soccer.

      “I’m sure all of the infrastructure they leave here will give people jobs, allow children to play in stadiums that are being built,” he said.
      “A lot of kids don’t have opportunity to play on grass.” (Editing by Peter Rutherford)

      lack of seriousness ndiyo inayofanya waafrika tusifike mbali... talents tunazo za kutosha. Cameroun wakati mmoja walitaka kugoma wakiwa mashindanoni WC kisa posho ilikuwa ndogo! Wakafungiliwa mbali... baadhi yao wanasahau kuwa kuna watoto wa Africa hata mlo mmoja kwa siku ni shida kupata..

      Ushindi wa mashindano makubwa kama yale kwa timu yoyote ya Africa, huleta furaha kwa waafrika wote. I wish wangejua hili hawa mabalozi wetu.

      But i am sure this time, tutafika mbali... we have very strong teams..na jinsi mashindano yalivyoendeshwa ya kutafuta wawakilishi, ni hakika kulikuwa na ushindani mkubwa, na hao waliopita, ukiachilia mwenyeji SA (Cameroun, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria na.....) wamekaza buti kwelikweli.

      inshaalah, tuombe uzima!
