“I don’t have any favourite country to win the 2022 World Cup, but I will be very happy if an African nation goes all the way to win it. I would also not predict which country will win the World Cup so long as it is an African team.

“My message to the five African countries is to go to Qatar and be fearless. They should go there believing they can win the World Cup like every other country. They should go and create history for themselves and their countries, ” Musa stated.
