Faces of Football: Cameroon - a letter to the national team

Expensive Cameroonian nationwide group, 

Congratulations on making it to the FIFA World Cup for an eighth time. 

The 26 million folks in our nation consider in you and your capacity to carry out on the most important phases. Let’s present the world the spirit of ‘hemle’ you’ve gotten – the spirit that has led to a lot success for our great nation all through the years. 

That success down the years consists of Cameroon being certainly one of three African nations to achieve the World Cup quarter-finals. We did it in 1990 once we famously beat the likes of Argentina and Colombia.  

Expensive Samuel Eto’o, now our Fecafoot president, don’t relent in your efforts to, as you’ve gotten promised, make Cameroonians dream massive. You mentioned in September after the Lions’ pleasant in opposition to South Korea that ‘we’re coming back from Qatar solely after the World Cup ultimate’, and we consider these phrases are real.

Expensive Rigobert Track, our most capped participant within the nationwide group and now our coach. We belief your judgements. You performed in three FIFA World Cups your self and regardless of not with the ability to get previous the group phases, you all the time gave it your all. We need to see an identical stage of dedication from the present group. 

The followers have endured heartaches within the final two World Cups we took half in. 2010 was described as a debacle, and the opposite in 2014 was described as being completely shambolic. 

The nation doesn’t need to see one thing related this time spherical. 

We all know that the group phases received’t be straightforward. Serbia and Switzerland are not any pushovers in any respect, however now we have to point out them each that the five-time African champions are a pressure to be reckoned with in 2022. And let’s not neglect that we’ve crushed Brazil twice earlier than in worldwide competitions. Present them that we’re the 5-time African champions, an influence home on the African scene and certainly the worldwide stage. 

We have to see this World Cup as a strategy to honour these of our followers who sadly died within the stampede throughout our current Africa Cup of Nations conflict with Comoros. 

We consider in you, and we all know you possibly can go far.
