Cameroon's ability in doubt - Enoh


The Cameroon-born midfielder nonetheless believes the team has enhanced its chances of making it through to the next stage.

The furthest the Indomitable Lions can progress, the young player forecasts, is the semifinals.

“I am not convinced the team will win the tournament and by current standards, making it to the semifinals of the tournament would be a good achievement,” he says.

The Indomitable Lions whacked Zambia 5-1 on Saturday in a one-sided Group C encounter at the ongoing tournament to make up for their embarrassing loss to Egypt in their opening match.

The victory over Chipolopolo did second-placed Cameroon’s chances a lot of good. They play the group’s whipping boys, Sudan, in their next match while Zambia, their closest rivals have a taxing encounter against defending champions Egypt.

Concurring with many of Cameroon’s critics, Enoh points out that one of the team’s major undoings is its reliance on players that many argue are over-the-hill.

“There should be continuity all round. Some old players, like Song, will soon need replacement,” says the Kumba-born midfielder of his national captain.

Cameroon last won the tournament in 2002 and are chasing a fifth Nations Cup success to equal defending champions Egypt.
