Anyone seen an African team win the world cup?

I'm in 2062, and have seen an Asian winner (Iraq), and a North American winner (Canada), but never an African one.

The highest performers have been Nigeria (runners up 2038), Cameroon (3rd place 2050) and Morocco (3rd place 2062).

How've they done on your game?

You're talking about the same game that has England winning the Euro Cup 2008 in almost everyone's game?

Yeah, okay http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Ivory Coast won the 2010 WC in my file. But England did win Euro 2008!

Was fairly quick in my game.

Nigeria won the 2010 version by beating England in the final. And you can't say they had an easy route to the final as they beat Italy in the QF and Brazil in the SF.

In one of my saves Cameroon won the 2010 world cup. But as it is set in S.Africa I suppose the African nations would have some advantage in terms of conditions.

the standard of african regens you get in the game tends to be pretty poor in my experience, so it seems unlikely that they'll be winning international tournaments 20 years into a game

Nigeria won it in 2014 in my save.

It's up! He was wrong!

"In 1977, Pele predicted an African victory in the World Cup before the end of the 20th century. While that did not happen, Pele believes that the continent will soon surprise the established football powers of the world."

No way, EXACTLY the same in my save, Nigeria beat Italy then Brazing and then England. They won 2-1 in the final (Obefami Martins got two, Owen got the other)

Well technically africa did in fact win the world cup in 1998, shame that all of the african players chose to play for france
eg, desailly - born in ghana
Thuruam - senegal
Zidane - algerian
viera - Ghana

Here's a couple of his other predictions:

Argentina and France to contest the 2002 final
Both exit in the first round, France without even scoring.


Colombia to win USA 94
They lose their first two games and finish bottom of their group.

Three or is it four seasons into our online game, Iran got to the semi-final of the world cup, beating Brazil on the way. South Korea beat Germany, as did Northern Ireland. England finished bottom of their group and Scotland got through the groups stages. Weird!

2010, Italy beat Senegal 2-0.

Didn't he also compile a list of players he considered to be the top 100 in the world that included El-Hadji Diouf? That viagra's definetley doing something, just not in the right place.

I believe his prediction will come true soon, you look at a lot of the top players now in the premiership and are lot are currently away at african nations.

Yes he did.

And he left off too many greats like George Best, Dennis Law, and plenty of others. Yet has Mia Hamm on the list.

Just to clarify (again), his prediction was that an African team would win BEFORE 2000 so it can't "come true soon"!

My game is never the norm it seems.

Euro's 2008 Italy beat Czech Rep Hosts Austria.

Euro's 2012 France beat Sweden Hosts Poland.

World Cup 2010. Winner Argentina Runner Up Czech Rep Third France Hosts South Africa.

World Cup 2014. Winner France Runner Up Argentina Third Brazil Hosts Brazil.

Not an English success anywhere http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif.
