Morocco has made history by becoming the first African country to win the World Cup.
Congratulations to them. It was à nice game. On the same note my heart is bleeding for our team Harambe stars. When you promised that Harambe stars would play in the 2026 world cup I believed you. I believe if you were our president Kenya's football would have been reinvigorate.
Congratulations to the Atlas lions, they have proven me wrong, the first African nation to reach the Semi Finals of a world cup, Africa is proud.
