How did you analyze performance of future world champions? Samuel Eto’o,The president of the Cameroonian Football Federation made the Indomitable Lions successors to France?

(Laughs) To qualify for the second round, we will need to show something else. This will be difficult in a group which also includes Serbia, who is playing very well, as well as Brazil, one the favourites. Cameroon disappointed me, and left me hungry. I expected more from Cameroon in terms of commitment and desire.

The first half, however, was pretty decent…

There were some interesting things and a few chances. But the midfielders and attackers were too far apart. Cameroon could’ve pressed a bit harder to prevent the Swiss raises. Cameroonians didn’t make enough use of the ball when they got it. I expected them to accelerate and be sharper at 0-0 at halftime.

“We will have to show something else against Serbia”

Breel Embolo scored Switzerland’s goal. This seemed to be a way for them to get their legs.

In effect. I thought Switzerland’s opener would be a good thing for the Lions. They were going to take more risks to at least get the draw. However, they were anesthetized by it. There was no more rhythm. The Swiss gave up the ball, but the Cameroonians did not use it well. It was a shame, because there was more to do. His victory is logical to me.

Monday will see the Cameroonians take on Serbia. Are you optimistic?

It is not true that the Lions are on the same team. Serbia is a great team, with excellent technical quality and skilled attackers. It was ahead Portugal in qualifying, but that’s not an accident. Cameroon will need to win the last match against Brazil if it wants to be able to qualify. The Lions will have better ball use, more efficiency, and more rhythm.
