African football is set to embark on a new era, with greater investment in football development and the chance for more teams to shine on the global stage, FIFA (www.FIFA.com) President Gianni Infantino told a workshop for African Member Associations.
Speaking at the opening of the two-day event in Paris, the FIFA President stressed the importance of finding ways of encouraging more players to remain in Africa to exercise their profession.
Gianni Infantino said that the decision to expand the FIFA World Cup to 48 teams, with nine guaranteed spots for CAF as opposed to the previous five, would have knock-on effects in encouraging investment.
