    Embarrassing and deserved outcome to match our embarrassing performance even throughout qualifying (letting teams like Uganda and Congo control the ball against us) and obviously the World Cup.

    The good news is that 2019 CAF qualifying seeding has already happened and the 2022 group seeding is still far enough away for the team to recover and climb back into the top 5 seeds in Africa.
