Avram Grant has questioned the inability of any African side to go beyond the quarter-finals in the Mundial.
An African country is yet to go beyond the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup.
Cameroon in 1990, while Senegal in 2002 and Ghana in 2010 made it to the quarter-finals, but they couldn't go past the quarters.
Avram Grant, who has promised make history with Ghana by guiding them to semi-finals has questioned why African has failed to do better than the quarter-finals mark.
“I wanted to come to Africa and coach a team as I knew the continent has enormous football talents,” he told the media before Ghana’s last AFCON 2017 qualifier match against Rwanda.
“With this pool of talent, I found it difficult to understand why no African country has made it beyond the Quarter finals of a world cup.
“And this got me to accept the Black Stars challenge and hope to make history with Ghana if we qualify to Russia for the 2018 FIFA World Cup,
