World Cup : It's Hard to Say Why - Pelé

Football legend, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, popularly known as Pelé has predicted that Nigeria and other African teams can win the World Cup.

Pele believes it is possible for the Super Eagles of Nigeria and other African representatives to claim the World's biggest football prize. 
He also said it is difficult to understand why a nation from Africa have never won the World Cup. 

”I said so, because it’s amazing how many talented Africans are playing around the world, but when the time comes for national teams, then problems begin.

”It’s hard to say why so, because there is no special reason for that.
”Africans play leading roles in all positions, with the exception of goalkeepers. And the teams do not show themselves that way,” Pelé told RT‎.
No African team has ever reached the semifinals of the competition. Nigeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia and Senegal will hope to do so  at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
