Will be interesting to see the quality of these 2 new teams. The African Futsal Championship will play in Burkina Faso next year (another 'futsal virgin'), it would be nice to see more African countries start with futsal. Cape Verde, for example, must have a decent futsal team, and Ghana managed to draw with Egypt, in the first edition in 1996 but they haven't competed since.
At the moment, only 18 countries have played futsal in Africa out of 56, and it is the continent with the lowest percentage of futsal-playing nations.
In addition, Cape Verde and Djibouti have entered tournaments, but have withdrawn without playing.
