The guy is a survivor. If he was easy to be killed, he would have been liquidated a long time ago while playing for the lions.

'It's Coming Home'?
Exactly 190 days from now, Cameroon gets the ball rolling at the FIFA World Cup, against Switzerland. Listening to Rigobert Song speak, you get a feeling no Cameroon coach has ever voiced this much confidence heading into a World Cup tournament. FECAFOOT President Samuel Eto'o's winning mentality that saw him through a glorious playing career is the new mantra everyone lives by. Finally, football management has had a much-awaited lease of life, and is living rare happy days with a football legend at the helm. From home-based players to dual nationals et al, packs are being shuffled to get the best to improve the current crop of combative Lions.
With everything gelling, can it be 8th time lucky?

Rigobert Song:
"I wish that Samuel Eto'o comes to the training sessions always when his timetable permits. The presence of former players is an incredible source of motivation to the young players. Seeing President Samuel Eto'o train with us makes the young players dream and pushes them to excel. Equally, the mere presence of Patrick Mboma, Souleymanou Hamidou, Augustin Simo, Raymond Kalla and Rigobert Song makes the players to transcend through speeches."

Rigobert Song on his selection of players:
"Cameroonians must know that the national team is for everyone. It is a grouping of the best players. If home-based players are among the best, they shall be called up. Don't forget that many ex-Lions went to the World Cup while playing for Cameroonian clubs. I think, for example, of Pierre Njanka who scored a memorable goal against Austria at the 1998 World Cup. So there's no reason to sideline home-based players... The proof is that Souaibou Marou and Patient Wassu, who play for Coton Sport, were called up for the important play-off tie against Algeria. My staff and I live in Cameroon, and we visit the stadiums to be able to pick players that can help the national team."

Rigobert Song on Toko-Ekambi's Blida goal:
"When Kunde Malong took the ball for the throw-in, he wanted to play it long. I told him 'pass the ball to Fai Collins who can whip in a good cross'. At first, I thought Fai misjudged the cross. However, the ball arrived on the head of Ngadeu and Toko-Ekambi...I don't know where he came from. He did what he does best. You can imagine what followed. I am happy with my players who showed me that a Lion is dangerous even when asleep."
Rigobert Song put his trust in Fai with the very last opportunity and Fai repaid the trust.

Rigobert Song: "Our objective is to reach at least the semi-finals in Qatar!"

Cameroon head coach Rigobert Song has spelled out the Indomitable Lions' objective at this year's FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Speaking to Corner magazine, the former Cameroon international said, "You know, the president of FECAFOOT is very passionate...He made us understand after we qualified for the World Cup that he wants us to cross the quarterfinals. This signifies that our objective is at least the semifinals.

Rigobert Song equally gave his opinion about Cameroon's group at the tournament which comprises Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia.

Samuel Eto

Across the country, there are thousands of young boys and girls with a dream to shine on the football pitch and compete with the best. It’s an honour to present a newly signed agreement between Fecafoot - Officiel and the Ministry of Secondary Education, led by Minister Nalova Lyonga.
Together, we aim to accelerate the development of youth football in Cameroon, starting with this year’s Africa Schools Championship.

LEADERSHIP!

If only we could have this level of inspirational leadership at national level.

Keep this up on a long term basis and the results could propel Cameroon to Global football domination.

Next off President of Cameroon.

We do!

Eto'o is their version of Oliseh! The same mentality, no nonsense attitude, drive, hot temper, aggression and passion for success done the right way. Unfortunately, Nigeria is not Cameroon. In Nigeria, they will hunt you and send you to an early grave if you try to disrupt the system that piles their pocket.

:thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs: I don't know why people were shrining "the wasteful guy" during AFCON. Toko is head and shoulders above all other scorers. Rigobert should handle him carefully so he is healthy for the WC.

8-)

Absolutely.

Lessons learned from the winning days of the SE, only when the Nation's President directly supports a winning team of administrators can we attempt to imagine success. Appears to be working for the Lions at the minute.

well, may the "doctor" Abega RIP. Biya let those who put him on the map die in poverty. This was when Cameroon had footballers. This current crop of ballers will not make the bench of division 2 in the 80s in Cameroon.

It's never a question of "who wants?". It's a question of "who can?"! When you saw this smile and Puma boots, you knew the final was over before it started.
Samuel remains the only African player to have scored in two Champions League finals, and is the only to have won the title 3 times. He is equally the only to have won it back-to-back.
He is simply Africa's most decisive player in the history of the UEFA Champions League.
Respect!
