Concerning logistics, the Team Manager, Rigobert Song Bahanag has said convocations have been sent to players, the hotel has been reserved and the flight tickets are being processed.

Of the 28 players convened for the training, Danny Nounkeu, Aurelien Chedjou, and Achille Webo would be playing in Fenerbache following the English Super Cup. Alexandre Song and Jean Marie Dongou would play a match in Thailand on Sunday. Nicolas Nkoulou and Joel Matip would player their first matches of the season on Sunday.
