Cameroon would play DR Congo in Garoua in the away leg of the African Amateur Championship last ticket billed for South Africa next year.
The match has been moved to Garoua as the Amadou Ahidjo Stadium is under rehabilitation to host the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Libya.
Cameroon failed to qualify against Gabon a fortnight ago and would have to win the DR Congo if they want to be part of the CHAN.
Coach Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso knows the importance of the game as he says, “we need to seize this opportunity with two hands. We lost in Gabon and we cannot let go of the second chance. We are going to play the qualification match in the away leg and maximise our chances”.
To achieve this objective, Ndombe Bosso places his hope on Cotonsport players most of whom he called in his 30 man squad to face DR Congo for the Sunday game.
But, this would be a tough game as the DR Congo would play with some of the best in their national team who also happen to play for Tout Puissant Mazembe.
The match commissioner, Senegalese, Sene Badara arrived Cameroon today. The quarto Sudanese referees are expected to arrive tomorrow. The central referee is Abdel Gadir Badr El Din, the first, second and third assistants are Abdel Rhaman Khalid, Khalafalla Abdel Aziz and Medany Mustafa Abrahim respectively.
The A Lions are in Garoua where they have been preparing for the match since Wednesday.
