Cameroon will seek to improve on their runs in today’s match against Australia at the ongoing CAF Confederations Cup in Russia.
Coach Hugo Bross has assured that the Indomitable Lions will be keen to avoid a repeat of the tepid start to their opening game of the tournament which they lost to Chile.
“I hope we start the game better than we did against Chile. The first 20 minutes were almost disastrous and if we didn’t have a bit of luck on our side, we could have been 3-0 down.
“I hope against Australia, that from the first second of the game we will seek to dominate,” the Cameroon coach told a news conference on Wednesday.
Cameroon lost 0-2 to Chile in Moscow on Sunday, eventually giving up two late goals, and with Australia losing 2-3 to Germany on Monday in the other Group B tie, today’s clash in St Petersburg is a must-win for both countries.
“I’ve seen a few games of Australia and there is a lot of enthusiasm in the team, a fighting spirit, so it’s a very difficult team to play against.
“It’s a different style than three days ago when we played Chile. But again we’ll need to be on our highest level if we are to beat them, and we have to beat them to keep up our chances to go further than the first round.
“If we don’t have a victory against Australia it’s finished for us. We know what to do but it’ll be a tough game,” Broos added.
