Bafana & 3 Other African Giants Axed From FIFA 22

Football fans have been enjoying the latest edition of EA FIFA for the majority of a month now, and many local players may have already noticed that the South African national team is missing.

However, Hugo Broos' men are not the only African side excluded from the latest title, there are three other major African nations who are not included.

Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Egypt are all not available when choosing international teams to play with, in the game, along with a host of South American sides such as Chile, Colombia, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

European champions, Italy, are back in the game after missing FIFA 21, and this all seems down to the same reason that the Azzurri were excluded last time around - licences.

This problem in the game is not solely restricted to national teams, as seen with a number of top sides, including Juventus, cutting their ties and forcing EA to have to change their name and numerous other elements in-game.

It remains to be seen whether or not Bafana may return in the next instalment of the game, or if EA's decision to potentially rebrand could impact licencing issues further.
