Others are Ousmane Dembélé (Mali), Randal Kolo Muani (Congo), Youssouf Fofana (Mali), Steve Mandanda (DR Congo), William Saliba (Cameroon).

Dayot Upamecano (Guinea-Bissau), Ibrahima Konaté (Mali), Eduardo Camavinga (Angola) are the other players of African descent in the France squad.

“It’s more like an AFCON final,” Okocha told SuperSport.

Morocco stunned Portugal 1-0 to reach the semi-finals.
