Cameroon – World Cup 2018: Can the Indomitable Lions overcome the “Group of Death”

Written by Deckson N.

Placed in a Group B where coming out a winner won’t be an easy adventure, the national team of Cameroon, surrounded by Algeria, Zambia and Nigeria, will deliver a deadly fight that will leave at least two of them on the tile. An equation that Hugo Broos will have to solve absolutely, engaged since arriving in rebuilding the national team.

Hugo Broos is warned! The qualifying campaign for the 2018 World Cup is in nothing like that of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) after which Cameroon validated as a “hero“, her Gabonese passport. This time it will be strong for the country of Clinton Njie which has in the past been more or less lucky during the draw. For the Russian expedition, it will be a fratricidal war, a conflict of sweat and blood that will deliver the sons of a single continent. Conflict after which one nation get its ticket to Moscow, while three others, including at least two who are used to the world cup, will stay back home. Accustomed to the World Cup, the Indomitable Lions seem lately less comfortable when it comes to face the big names. Just that there will be three to beat this time. The “prey” of the big cats are named Algeria, Zambia and Nigeria. Large pieces on the chessboard of African football given recent recorded performances.

Talk about “Group of death” would be an understatement because different posters in this group are all the duels that promise sparks. Aware that this is a fragile legacy he has acquired, Hugo Broos who began measuring the severity of the missions entrusted on him with the laborious stage of qualifying for the AFCON 2017, must develop a team that produces the game, but especially wins. Gone are the series of draws; Finished those boring meetings where the 11 men on the ground offer a tasteless performance to the public. This is a conquering national team and scope to future deadlines that Cameroon needs. Defense in the middle through a reconstruction of the attack, all the compartments must play collectively. Almost everything has to be redone, because the slightest mistake will be paid cash. So no matter the device or tactical major reforms to develop, the keystone is the choice of the men and their use on the playground.

Between changes, groping and bad permutations, the national team has changed in recent months, in a kind of chamber passes. Guidance navigation can not be tolerated this time. But to work undisturbed, he should also wring the neck of discipline, dreadful poison that rotten the environment in the den. Put an end to hatred, jealousy, or exoteric spiritual struggles and oversized egos of certain “superstars“. Helped by a FECAFOOT which gave him all the legitimacy to make the choice of his men, he must also show leadership in order to be well above these struggles and these notorious interference exerted by pressure groups settled around and within the team, and all things that disrupt the work of coaches and the performance of players on the field.
