Insight: Here is the list of African local players called-up to represent their respective nations ahead of the world cup 2022 in Qatar.

Like we all know, being called up to present ones nation is an honor, but is not an easy task from both the players and the management to do so. While the players have to show a lot of professionalism, determination and hard work, the management spends lots of time scouting thousands to millions of players around from that country.

Players who play at home (local) leagues and other African leagues have to even go extra miles with hard work and dedication for their names to be heard and get scouted due to lack of media coverage in must African leagues.
