Who is the best team from Africa never to qualify for a world cup ?
- 2 months ago
Well, I'd say probably Zambia. Of the total of 54 FIFA, and CAF (Africa) active members, 41 have never qualified for the finals. They have had the most attempts of 14 to qualify, although only by 1, as two others have had 13. They are a decent side, and as of November 2019, they are ranked 88th in the world and 19th in Africa, according to the official FIFA rankings. Their player with the most caps seems to have 121 and they have appeared at Africa Cup of Nations finals and won one of then, which was against Ivory Coast in 2012.
