AFCON

A look at how Europe, Africa and South America will line up if there was a Continental Cup

Imagine if these Continent XIs went to head-to-head in a tournament. Gone are the days when FIFA promoted games like world XI vs Africa XI. These matches were stacked with stars and was a joy to watch.

Just imagine each football confederation under FIFA assembles an all-star team of players from its member countries that will compete for the championship.

Team Africa currently will lined up with stars like Mendy, Baily, koulibaly, Saiss, Hakimi, Partey, Ndidi, Mahrez, Mane, Salah, Aubameyang.

Team South America starting XI will be Alisson, Cuadrado, Gimenez, Sanchez, Acuna, Casemiro, Vidal, Di Maria, Neymar, Messi, Suarez.

What will be the benefits of organizing such a match?

Football builds identity.

Football has shown to be more than just a game in the past. It captivates practically every country on the planet, and the games' thrill and emotion bring people from all walks of life together.

These common experiences contribute to the development of local, regional, national, and even international identities, if our ambition becomes a reality.

FIFA, we believe, has the ability to better utilise its global platform as a unifying force in our globe. The Continental Football Cup would do exactly that: it would be a tournament that brought all of the continent's countries together passionately around a shared objective.
