In the African world cup kwalificatiepoule B leads Nigeria at the moment with four points ahead of Cameroon. The neighbours take each other on August 31, in Uyo four days later in Yaounde. Then remains only two races. For Cameroon are that Algeria is home and Zambia. Only the group winners of the place for the world cup 2018. The Indomitable Lions of Hugo Broos are thus forced to take at least four to six to get to stay in the game for the first place. But the best they get six on six. Then they come to the management and they have everything in their own hands.

“The world cup is for Cameroon is a must,” says Sven Vandenbroeck, assistant of Brittle. ‘That two laden duels.’ Since the last world cup kwalificatieduel, draw on their own field against Zambia in november, Cameroon is, however, grown enormously. ‘We built the team from old and static to young and dynamic,” says Vandenbroeck.

‘The young team did at the Africa Cup and the Confederations Cup a lot of experience and after winning the Africa Cup is also confidence increased enormously. That provides an extra boost each time we are together. Also at the tactical level, we go forward.’ Played there especially the Confederations Cup a major role in, has already clashed with the Indomitable Lions also have their limitations.

‘On the African continent is usually an endurance battle, in Russia we had to against Germany and Chile, especially the tactical situation. We learned that there is a large difference in level exists between the real top and the rest. Than I talk especially about the speed of information processing, spatial playmaking and explosiveness. Many things that are of a young age can be trained, but that in Cameroon too little in training to be processed, partly due to the lack of infrastructure. One positive note is that our second half is always better than our first. That was later clearly demonstrated in the analysis of all the statistics.”
