African football is not exactly under the spotlight when it comes to the world’s greatest football, but it sure has many amazing players that perform at top teams from Europe. We can mention Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane from Liverpool, for instance.
FIFA 22 didn’t include any national teams from Africa because of licensing issues. FIFA 23 will fix that by including African national teams that qualified for the 2022 World Cup that will be held in Qatar, as Givemesport.com reveals.
FIFA 23 will bring the World Cup mode
The upcoming World Cup mode that FIFA 23 will be featuring will likely bring a new exciting vibe to the series. We can expect to see all the 32 national teams that are qualified for the World Cup in Qatar. The African national teams that qualified for the competition are Senegal, Cameroon, Morocco, Ghana, and Tunisia. Therefore, we can expect these nations to be present in FIFA 23 as well.
EA already promised the world that FIFA 23 would be the best game of the legendary FIFA series. After that, the series will be renamed EA SPORTS FC. A part of the official announcement from EA sounds like this:
Everything you love about our games will be part of EA SPORTS FC – the same great experiences, modes, leagues, tournaments, clubs and athletes will be there. Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs and VOLTA Football will all be there. Our unique licensing portfolio of more than 19,000+ players, 700+ teams, 100+ stadiums and 30 leagues that we’ve continued to invest in for decades will still be there, uniquely in EA SPORTS FC. That includes exclusive partnerships with the Premier League, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Serie A, the MLS – and more to come.
FIFA 23 will likely be improved for its gameplay as well, and we can’t wait to see the final outcome when the game launches around September or October!
