Default African football's World Cup aspirations

Will an African team finally make it to the men's World Cup semi-finals in the next 4 World Cups (2014, 2018, 2022, 2026)?
They came close in 1990, when Cameroon led England 2-1 in the quarter-final, before England turned it round.
They came close in 2002, when a Turkish golden goal ended Senegal's dream.
They came close in 2010, when Suarez's hands ensured a penalty shoot-out in which Ghana lost.

As we can see, Africa has come very close to being in a World Cup semi-final, but at the same time, those are the only three times Africa has been represented in the World Cup last 8.
