Africa is one of the most populated continents on earth. Africa has produced many great men and women throughout history. However, only one African country has hosted the FIFA World Cup. South Africa hosted the FIFA World Cup in 2010. It was one of the most successful editions of the FIFA World Cup. This is why another African country should host the FIFA World Cup in future. Below are three African countries that should host the World Cup in future.

1. Nigeria

Nigeria is one of the most respected countries in Africa. The country has what it takes to host the FIFA World Cup in future. For instance, Nigeria already has some standard football stadiums. An example is the Moshood Abiola National Stadium located in Abuja. Nigeria also has the resources to build good stadiums in order to host the FIFA World Cup. This is because Nigeria is one of the most endowed countries in Africa. The world would be fascinated by the cultural diversity in Nigeria.

2. Egypt

Egypt has one of the oldest civilizations in global history. This country has many historical artifacts that would fascinate football fans around the world. It should also be said that there are many big football stadiums in Egypt. This means that the Egyptian government would only have to build a few more stadiums in order to host the FIFA World Cup. For instance, the Cairo International Stadium has a capacity of 75,000 seats. This stadium is larger than some big stadiums in Europe.

3. Ghana

Ghana has a very rich cultural heritage. It is important to point out that Ghana have played in the FIFA World Cup on a few occasions.
