Russia 2018 World Cup: Beat Eagles or get fired – Cameroon FA tells coach


In a swift reaction to Cameroon’s 1-1 draw against the Chipolopolo of Zambia, the soccer governing body in that country, FECAFOOT on Monday charged the Indomitable Lions coach, Hugo Broos and his backroom staff to ensure they beat the Super Eagles in the double header of the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifying games next August.

FECAFOOT, while expressing its dissatisfaction over the home draw requested the Belgian -born football tactician to put Cameroon’s World Cup campaign back on track and handed a two- match must win ultimatum against Nigeria. Broos has more than eight months to prepare his team, in order to destabilize the Eagles in the decisive away (Uyo) and home (Limbe) fixtures.

Broos in his post-match comments after the draw with Chipolopolo said there was still much work to be done.

“We had a very bad first half. In addition, the free kick, which caught the team off guard was as a result of lack of concentration.

“But it shows us what we are capable of, and what we still have to do to improve ourselves. The next few months would be for the AFCON tournament in Gabon.

“However, we know that the matches against Nigeria will be decisive. We will have to win to have another chance to go to the World Cup. We have eight months to prepare,” Broos was quoted as saying.

In a statement released by the Cameroonian Football Federation, the four-time Afcon winners had set their sights on halting the Super Eagles’ great run of form to get to the quadrennial tournament.

The Super Eagles defeated the Desert Foxes of Algeria 3-1 last Saturday to lead group B log with six points, while Cameroon is second with two points. Algeria and Zambia are level on a point each.
