Morocco, Angola & Libya to represent Africa at FIFA Futsal World Cup!

Morocco, Angola, Libya, is the trio who will represent the CAF zone at the FIFA Futsal World Cup which will take place in Uzbekistan from September 14 to October 6, 2024.

African champions, Morocco will be joined by Angola and Libya as the three representatives of Africa at the upcoming FIFA Futsal World Cup in Uzbekistan set to take place between 14 September – 06 October this year.

Morocco were crowned champions on home soil after a commanding 5-1 victory over Angola in Rabat in the final that was attended by CAF President, Dr Patrice Motsepe who was with FIFA President, Gianni Infantino on Sunday, April 21.

After being quarter-finalists in Lithuania during the 2021 edition, Morocco will be looking to go even further with the status of being three-time African champions. This will be Morocco’s fourth FIFA Futsal World Cup appearance.

Runners-up, Angola are also making a return to the global showpiece for their second time following their 2021 appearance that saw them exit the competition at the group stages.

African bronze-madalists, who stunned Egypt to secure their ticket to the global showpiece will be hoping to continue their impressive run.

The Mediterranean Knights were in fine-form in Morocco and showed resillience in reversing a 2-0 lead to draw with tournament favourites, Egypt before edging them on penalties for a podium finish that sees them through to the global showpiece later this year.
