AFCON2023: I know we will qualify for the second round – Coach Rigobert song

By Muluh Alfred

Despite Cameroon’s 3-1 loss to Sénégal in their second group match of the AFCON, the head coach of the indomitable Lions remains steadfast in Cameroon’s qualification.

During a post-match press conference, he stated ‘I am always optimistic. As long as there is a final match, there are no calculations to make. The next match will be a final for us and I know that we will qualify for the second round.’

Assuming full responsibility for the defeat against Sénégal, the head coach added ‘When there is a defeat, we must bear responsibility and therefore we must admit that Senegal was better than us in the match.’

Coach Song noted that the young players in the team would need more experience to produce better results on such occasions. ‘Senegal was stronger than us, their players were in their places on the field, They deserved their victory. For our part, we have young players in the national team, and they are at the beginning of their experience.’

In his view, the players did everything they
could during the game, but small details made the difference. ‘We admit that the competitor was better than us,’ he explained.

Cameroon drew their first game against Guinea and heads into the third game with just one point after their loss to Senegal.
