In a pre-match press conference this Saturday, Germany unveiled a part of its strategy to overcome Cameroon Sunday, synonymous with a qualification for the semi-finals.
The match against Germany looks challenging for the indomitable Lions who traveled to Sochi on the night after their disappointment against Australia. Hugo Broos, who has twice lined up the same eleven, is expected to do his best, keeping his 4-3-3 record.
“Cameroon is a very physical team so we will try to circulate the ball very quickly to avoid getting into their game,” said Leon Goretzka on Saturday in a pre-game conference. To achieve this, Germany can count on the youthfulness of its workforce, which has been rejuvenated to almost 80%.
Opposite, the Germans will have a respondent. “I’m not intimidated to play against the German players. On the contrary, it’s exciting because it’s an opportunity to prove what I’m worth and I have the same level, “said Arnaud Djoum, Cameroonian midfielder.
“We’re here to play football and at this level, it’s a fantastic experience. There are real football stadia here and we are happy that the Russians supported us as they did, “said Hugo Broos.
On the basis of the points and the difference of goals of each country, it is clear that Cameroon is condemned to win with a gap of at least three goals against Germany before hoping for a passage in force for the second round after another calculation involving the score of the other match between Chile and Australia.
