Cameroon’s national team trained for the last time in Malabo this Thursday morning. In the evening, Benjamin Moukandjo and his teammates return to Yaounde for the final settlements before the shock that awaits them Saturday against Morocco.
The Indomitable Lions leave Malabo this evening to Yaounde, where they face Morocco on Saturday, as part of the first day of the qualifiers of the Africa Cup of Nations (AfCON) 2019. In training in the city where they were housed during the 2015 AfCON, the defending African champions trained for the last time in Equatorial Guinea this Thursday morning. Since then, they are resting and waiting for time to get to the airport.
Benjamin Moukandjo and his teammates took advantage of the working conditions at their disposal in Malabo. “If we chose to do this training in Malabo, it is not only to be away from the Cameroonian press, but also to allow players to stay focused. Because, if we were to stay in Yaoundé, they will be distracted by fans, friends and family, “explained Hugo Broos before leaving for the city of Equatorial Guinea.
The Indomitable Lions are thus complete. Last on the list of expected players, Fabrice Ondoa joined his teammates recently in Malabo. The African Champions goalkeeper trained with the group on Wednesday night.
According to information from the national press team, it was a special training session. “National coach Hugo Broos let some tactical options out of Saturday’s match against Morocco,” says Vincent De Paul Atangana.
According to him, two important diplomats attended this training session: Cameroon’s Ambassador to Malabo, Lazare Mpouel Balla, and his counterpart from the Republic of Congo.
