South Africa 2010: Africa Gets 6 Slots

Africa's chances of winning the 2010 world cup in South Africa has just been boosted. This follows the increase of the3 number of slots for Africa from 5 to 6.

This means that apart from south Africa who has authomatic qualification as host, four other teams will have the opportunity of donning their country's Jerseys at the Mundial.

Many think this might be the chance Africa was waiting for. But will it be properly utilized? The previous edition saw Africa being represented by feeble contenders. I do not try to say that they shouldn't have been allowed to represent Africa because
I must respect that.

However, one can not say that Africa's representatives in the previous edition, was goog enough to be proud of. But Africa should seize these opportunity as host and having 6 reprentatives for the first time in History to put smiles on our faces.
With six representatives, can Africa make an impact? Comments please.
