RIGOBERT SONG: “ETOO IS PUTTING TOO MUCH PRESSION ON ME TO WIN THE WORLD CUP”

Rigobert Song: “We are aiming for the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup”
Cameroon national team coach Rigobert Song has spoken of the pressure put on him by the Federation president ahead of the 2022 World Cup. Samuel Eto’o wants to see his country reach the last four of the competition scheduled for the end of the year in Qatar.

Before their first match of the CAN 2023 qualifiers, Cameroon’s flag team delivered a friendly match against a selection of local players. Rigobert Song’s men logically won 4-1 thanks to 3 penalties scored by Ignatius Ganago, Ambroise Oyongo and Vincent Aboubakar. And an own goal from Zemba. Even if they fished for their lack of experience, the locals somewhat seduced the manager-selector of the Indomitable Lions.

“ We took advantage of the absence of Kenya (suspended by FIFA, Ed.) to make this confrontation. It was about giving local players the chance to show what they are capable of. They weren’t ridiculous. I am satisfied. not been ridiculous. I am satisfied. It is not the result that is important. I remember the behavior of these young people… Two or three will complete the list of Indomitable Lions , ”said Rigobert Song.

If the band of Vincent Abouabakar begins the qualifying campaign for CAN 2023 this June 9 against Burundi, at Fécafoot, we dream much more of the World Cup. The chairman of the body took the opportunity again, at the end of yesterday’s friendly match, to remind Rigobert Song and his team of the objectives. “ We are going to Qatar to win. We enter each match to win, while thinking of Qatar. The others didn’t do the magic. The dream is not forbidden ,” hammered Eto’o. By force, the technical staff feels under pressure. ” I’m still in danger,” Song said. The president of FECAFOOT puts a lot of pressure on me .
