By Soccer Blog | Jun 28, 2018

There will be no African team in the knockout stages of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the first time since 1982 that it has happened. Every World Cup from 1986 has had at least one country from Africa in the knockout stages. Senegal came the closest this year, but were eliminated on the Fair Play Rule after collecting more yellow cards than Japan.
