Ahead of a crucial match between Cameroon and Senegal, Coach Rigobert Song has maintained his confidence in the team’s readiness to prove their point in the second group match of the ongoing 34th edition of the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cote d’Ivoire.
During a pre-match press conference, Song stressed the importance of finishing and stated that the upcoming match against the defending champions would be a significant challenge for the Cameroon national team.
“Tomorrow, there will be some good things. Matches come and go, but they’re never the same. We’re aware of that. My players and I are confident. It can be done. We believe in it,” expressed Rigobert Song.
Regarding the line-up for the match against the Terranga Lions, the Cameroonian coach believes that a winger will be included in the starting line-up. He further stated, “Tomorrow, you’ll have a team of 11, and everyone will be in their position.”
Cameroon faces an uphill battle as they aim to bounce back after their disappointing 1-1 draw against Guinea in the first group match. Football experts suggest that Cameroon must secure a victory to keep their dreams of qualifying for the second round alive.
