A first glance, the lions will not have the easy task facing the stallions, obviously very determined to print their marks during this continental appointment.

Questioned by Le Point Afrique, the Portuguese coach who will be at his third African Cup of Nations in Gabon has already set the tone. “It will be a tough game against a very good opponent, but the game will be complicated for Cameroon. Because, we are a beautiful team, “said the Lusitano technician.

He considers that he has made a very good preparation with his players during the course organized from 27 December to 8 January 2017 in Morocco. “We did a good preparation period that we finished well … It is an internship during which we worked a lot physically. Against Mali, we had a very good attitude. The spirit of the group is more important than the victory, in my opinion, “he assured.

On the Cameroon side, Hugo Broos, despite the many failings observed in the Indomitable Lions game Tuesday against Zimbabwe (1-1), displays the same confidence. The Belgian coach is determined to win his first match in the competition.
