Why Africa Fell Short at the World Cup - Again?

At every World Cup tournament since 1986, at least one team from Africa has made it to the second round of the World Cup finals. That record unceremoniously ended in Russia 2018, after all five countries - Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Nigeria and Senegal - were knocked out in the preliminary round. So what is to blame: bad luck, the video assistant referee or a lack of talent?
