Finally the French won the FIFA World Cup and Africa is somehow celebrating their achievement.
Les bleus did not just win the greatest trophy in world football but also did so in style, scoring four goals in a World Cup final something that has not happened in a very long time.
But here is the sad bit about it all.
You see, a big majority of the French stars are of African descent that somehow found themselves representing a European country at the World Cup.
Even their biggest star Kylian Mbappe who scored a spectacular goal in the final is of African descent.
Mbappe is the son of a Cameroonian father and an Algeria mother. Just imagine if he would have represented Cameroon instead and played alongside Samuel Etoo.
Their other big names like overrated Paul Pogba, Samuel Umtiti, Nabil Fekir, Chelsea’s running merchant N’Golo Kante and Blaise Matuidi were all born to African parents.
The image below shows why Africa should be in a sombre mood and not celebrating les bleus victory.
All these stars should be representing African countries and not France.
But who is to blame?
Our greedy politicians masquerading as leaders are the people responsible for all this mass talent relocation to European countries because they don’t see the sense in spending money on a training field or a stadium to nurture talent. They would rather eat the stadium.
I weep for Africa!
