A few days before the start of the Confederations Cup, the Lions took a big slap in front of Colombia with four goals scored by James Rodriguez, the captain of Yerry Mina who scored twice and Izquierdo towards the end of the second half.
In four games, Cameroon lost two games against Colombians (2 wins and 2 defeats). And the penultimate confrontation dates back to June 2003 during the confederations cup in which Cameroon lost its valiant compatriot Marc-Vivien Foé on the Gerland stadium in Lyon, France. The last time the Cameroon team conceded 4 goals in a game goes back to the World Cup 2014 against Brazil (4-1).
Cameroon finished the match with 10 after the expulsion of Ndip Tambe who had a red card. For the match, Hugo Broos made some changes from his usual team in recent months, starting with goalkeeper André Onana who started in the place of Fabrice Ondoa, the hero of AfCON 2017.
This big reverse breaks the good dynamics of the African champions before their entry into the race Sunday against another South American formation, Chile in the Confederations Cup.
