CAF provide cash injection to African qualifiers for 2018 FIFA World Cup

The five African representatives have been placed in tough groups following the 2018 FIFA World Cup draw conducted on Friday evening.

A CAF statement read in part: it was decided that CAF will grant a financial subsidy of $500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand dollars) to each of the five African teams.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup to take place in Russian Federation has finally snapped into focus after the final draw that took place on 1st December at Moscow's Kremlin state palace.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) says the money is "mainly to strengthen and improve the technical supervision of each team".

" In addition, CAF will provide each African representative with "fieldwiz" equipment, a technological device and physical performance measuring tool for outdoor team sports players".

No African team has gone beyond the quarterfinals.


Nigeria will be facing former World Champions, Argentina.

France on Friday were handed an apparently straightforward passage into the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup after being drawn with Peru, Denmark and Australia in Group C. The 2016 European championship runners-up will start their campaign on 16 June in Kazan against Australia.

Meanwhile, Egypt have been drawn alongside the host nation in Group A, alongside Saudi Arabia and Uruguay. Another could include defending champions Germany, 2010 winners Spain, Egypt and Japan.

"As is customary at Final Draws, a ball will be drawn from the team pots and then another from the group pots to determine the position in which the team in question will play".

Belgium and England will be the favourites to advance from Group G. Tunisia and Panama also feature in the pool.
