President Paul Kagame hosted the 73rd FIFA Congress in Rwanda and used the opportunity to project his country with global football bureaucrats and international media in attendance.
Under the new World Cup format, Africa will get more participating countries than the current five slots.
In his social media updates on the FIFA congress, President Kagame wrote:
“Under the new World Cup format, the slots available for African teams will almost double, creating even more engagement and visibility on our continent. What is important is the plan to continue developing and anchoring football in Africa.”
