Cameroon’s journey at the 2022 Qatar expedition will come to an end if the boy’s of Regibert Song fails to outplay the Selecão of Brazil this Friday, December 2, 2022 at the Lusail Stadium. Infact, the indomitable Lions of Cameroon have just one option which is to win and grab the three points, and the other calculations may follow depending on the outcome of the match between group mates Switzerland and Serbia.
Song’s only concern for now is to field in a winning side against Tite who has vowed to win also and stay at the top though he has already sailed through to the next stage with two victories in two games on a total of three goals and yet to concede.

He smiled will responding to a journalist who remained him of Cameroon’s historic 1-0 win over Brazil at the Confederations Cup in June 2022. To Rigobert Song, it is prove that in football there are always possibilities.
Concerning the exit of Onana and his replacement with Epassy Davies who plies the trade with Club Ahba in the Saudi Pro League, Song noted that the new shot keeper is not only a professional but a dynamic player
