FIFA has announced plans to raise $1bn (£775m) to build at least one stadium meeting Fifa standards in each African country.
Fifa president Gianni Infantino was talking in Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo during the 80th anniversary celebrations of Congolese side TP Mazembe.
He insisted that Fifa wanted African football to shine and would work with the Confederation of African Football (Caf) and other stakeholders to improve refereeing, infrastructure and competitions on the continent.
“We want to bring [Africa] to the highest of heights and show the world the outstanding talent and amazingly gifted players your continent possesses,” he said.
