AFCON 2019: Ghana is a walkover for Cameroon – Roger Milla
African football legend Roger Milla believes Cameroon have a relatively easy good in the 32nd edition of the AFCON.
The Indomitable Lions have been pitted alongside Ghana, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.
However, the former African Footballer of the Year in 1976 and 1990 who helped the Indomitable Lions to win their first AFCON title in 1984 maintains that coach Clarence Seedorf and his charges have what it takes to see off their opponents and retain the title.
“The group stage shouldn’t be challenging for the Lions. Ghana, Benin and Guinea-Bissau are teams we’ve beaten in the past – be it during the Nations Cup or in qualifiers, Roger Milla told BBC”
“We shouldn’t be afraid of anyone. It’s up to Seedorf and Kluivert to build a good team for the various games. So far, Seedorf has done a good job with qualifying the team but now is the most crucial part and he needs to live up to expectations.”
“The ideal scenario will be for Cameroon to win their sixth trophy in Egypt and clinch a seventh in 2021 when the country stages the Africa Cup of Nations. This will be tough – but it’s possible.”
Cameroon will play a friendly against Mali on 14 June. The Indomitable Lions will kickstart their campaign against Guinea-Bissau on June 25, four days before facing defending the Black Stars of Ghana.
