Cameroon coach Clarence Seedorf has said he is worried about the poor strike force of the Indomitable Lions. He made his feelings known ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations Round-of-16 match against Nigeria in Alexandria on Saturday.
But even as the Dutch worries over his team’s poor shooting skills, fans of Nigeria’s Super Eagles are also concerned about the few goals the Eagles have scored so far.
The Eagles and the Indomitable Lions have scored only two each goals each in the group stages. The Cameroonians can however celebrate their better defensive record with the highly-rated Lions goalkeeper André Onana yet to concede in the tournament. He plays professionally with Ajax Amsterdam.
Clinton N’Jie (Marseille), Stéphane Bahoken (Angers), Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (PSG), Karl Toko Ekambi (Villarreal), Joel Tagueu (Portugal Marítimo) and Jacques Zoua (Astra Giurgiu) are the strikers in the Cameroon squad.
Seedorf France Football, “I do not think of Nigeria; we just finished the match. I’m very happy because we qualified, but we were disappointed because we wanted to win the match, we completely controlled this match.
“We have to improve in several details, especially in attack, we have to be smarter to create more opportunities, we have not conceded a goal yet, there are positive things for the future.”
Nigeria eliminated Cameroon from the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
