I keep saying Cameroon is garbage. It's not hate it's facts. Nigeria by far have better players than other African countries. It's corruption and incompetent that is holding us back.
Are we talking about the same Nigerian team that recently played against Portugal?
I'm honestly struggling to see where these so called better players are.
What have Cameroon done at the World Cup aside from the fluke 1990 run? What? aside from embarrass yourselves and the continent. You guys have NEVER been good enough.

Aside from Victor Osimhen we don’t have better players, abeg stop this delusion…if we had them we wouldn’t be in the predicament we are in. This delusion is also part of why we are where we are. We’ve had even worse corruption in previous generations where we won trophies and actually had the best players on the continent. So let’s stop with the BS, actually assess where we are actually at and make a plan to improve…

Oh shut up. No player is good enough for you unless he was born in Europe. You said it yourself that Vic Osimhen was not good enough after the 2019 AFCON. Now you are backpedaling like Celestine Babayaro. Gerrrout.

If Nigeria paraded the likes of Choupo Moting i would instantly vomit.

That game in my opinion needed another attacking midfielder because Cameroon was putting the center defenders under pressure especially the #4.

There was a big gap behind Choupo so another attacking midfielder could have used that space especially with how high Onana was playing (pushing the defense up and creating a “numerical” advantage on the field). That was the gap we could have exploited especially when they went a goal down.
Also, Mbuemo was the best thing they had that could play wide off the 18 with a few ocassional incuts.

The defenders had to account for him so they had to spread out thus giving Choupo space.
You take him off and all you get are errant crosses going from left to right from the wing backs. Crazy that even the basics eluded him.

I have no idea what Aboubakar offered. I saw at least two terrible errant passes from him plus the near penalty he almost gave up. He used to be fast and commanding in the air but he lost a step, is playing in a lower tier league and has been off for a while (he was training with a Cameroon first division team to stay fit)
Coach, when you hire someone because he is your friend and not because he us qualified, what do you expect? Only in Cameroon would Nkoulou start over Wooh. For the first time in my life ever, I watched a game where a player did not pass any ball forward
I am talking about Nkoulou. He did not make any pass forward. It was so bad Onana had to play both as a keeper and a defender.
Eto’o hired someone he could control. There he has it.

Eto’o thought all Cameroon needed were those his made for TV motivational speeches and they would go all the way. He has to shoulder some of the blame for the poor showing. Song is no tactician, in my book.

Eto'o has developed a cult of personality among Cameroonians. He hired his bro who is doing the same thing. Compare messages on Song's hats to the emblem on the Senegalese coach's hat. A contrast a mile wide. Between those two knuckleheads, Cameroon will end this WC with no goal scored.

Eto'o so far is doing a great job with the local league but he is clueless when comes to the Lions. If he wants a local coach, Song is not it.

They could have elected someone else president of Fecafoot then name Eto'o the commissionaire of the national league.

Reading Cameroun media, it appears police had to protect Embolo’s family home in Yaoundé to avoid angry Camerounese burning the one down for Embolo daring to score for his country Switzerland against his home of birth, Cameroun.

Have they forgotten that Cameroon does not recognize dual nationality?

If rumors are anything to go by, they should be directing their anger and frustrations at Eto’o and his Utopia Group friends for not letting him play for his country

Cameroon has been lousy but it is disingenuous to suggest that their 1990 run was a fluke

They had some great players and it showed

I know we are not supposed to mix sports and politics, but ever since those 25 kids were killed in Ngarrbuh and Eto'o said nothing, I lost all the little respect I had for him. The worse part about it is that he was a UNICEF ambassador. Then he went and said on T.V how he'll vote for Biya. Went to Limbe before the nations cup with security guards and said he is working without security guards that everything is fine. To top it off, a journalist by the name Ernest Obama who said Anglophones should be wiped off the map of Cameroon (a very dangerous rhetoric that wiped out ethnic groups in Rwanda), is the same person Eto'o has chosen as his main media man.

Rumors have it that the constitution of Fecafoot stipulates that if the President is Francophone, the V.P must be Anglophone. The guys new administration has one Anglophone as 4th V.P. , son of late Njalla Quan.
Now let's say appointments are based on merits. You want to convince me that there are no Anglophones qualified to work under his administration?

I just di look the minni Dictator in the making di laugh. As soon as he became president, they changed the constitution from one term of four years(5?), to 7 years. And he didn't oppose it.

I believe Eto’o is modeling himself as something bigger than just FECAFOOT. He clearly wants to become president of Cameroon in future, a la George Weah. Unfortunately he is every bit as dirty as other [francophone] Camerounese politicians.
