    Seriously! Did he really said that? I hope someone explained to him that two countries from the same federation (except Europe) can’t be in the same group. I can guarantee that we won’t be in the same group with Morocco or any other African team!

    It gives a very good indication on how sophisticated our National Team coaching staff are 🙂
