    The score-line is a far representation of the actual battle. Cameroon played far better than expected and deserved to share the spoils from this game.

    Allan Nyom was Cameroon’s best player. Enoh won almost all duels and appeared very composed. His playing time at Antalya has helped him quite a lot.

    I am very optimistic after watching today’s game. We should be able to beat Mexico on game 1.

  2. Pabblos says:

    Chedjou and Nkoulou should never be played again together; that combination is a recipe for disaster. midfield was non-existent and the defence was simply atrocious. Alan Nyom redeemed himself, Aboubakar proved why he is the best player in Cameroon today. Eyong Enoh was the only presence in the midfield. Song should go to the bench and fight for his place , the rest of the team were average except for Enoh, Nyom and Aboubakar. This is a wake up call and i hope the coach will go back to the drawing board.

  3. SoupleMan says:

    The Coach has no guts. He does not want to bench Song and Makoun. Those players should not make the team thier inheritance. Were was Bong and Bedimo on the left? They need a good combination on the right with someone who can cross and return to defend. Too bad the coach is playing too safe in his lineup

  4. Pride says:

    S. Man!

    I agree with you that Makoun must not start. He is too small in size and lacks the necessary skill sets to keep the ball for that long. he always try to beat a man all the time. Alex Song must be improve to be a starter.

    Finke should Ekotto to left midfield if he must play him. He goes forward and would lose track of his man and his wing/position.

    Central Defensive partnership too is an issue. Chedjou appears to give the ball away too cheaply and I would blame him directly for the 3rd goal as well.

    The positives are Eto’o played his rightful role and our attack line was good. Abou would be a true revelation in Brazil and liked Choupo. Choupo is skillful.

    I think this team will beat Mexico. We played well and moved the ball around fluidly during the first half. The changes in the second half screwed us over.

    There is need to call in Bassong and Joseph Boum of Antalyaspor (Turkey) and try them out as well.
