Seedorf Will Be On The Right Track With Cameroon

Clarence Seedorf was appointed by Cameroon in 4th August and it seems like a decision taken majorly by status and not by on-field factors. The 42-year-old did enjoy the football career that most of his peers envied about. He won 4 Champions League titles in addition to 5 major leagues. Many people talked about his lack of experience in the African game could make it a risky choice as Cameroon’s coach. Without Arnaud Djoum and Sebastien Siani, two of many high profile champions cut from the team. Choupo Moting did catch the eye in the forward line and Karl Toko Ekambi battled in replacement for Vincent Aboubakar who was injured. Ekambi has 3 goals in previous 4 seasons for FC Porto.

The team selections have also raised many questions as Seedorf redeemed his previous mistake to begin Gaetan Bong before Ambroise Oyongo by bringing the latter later on. It was Oyongo from Montpellier who ultimately offered assistance for the equalizer of Bahoken, while Bong did tolerate a tough time. He represented a sensitive presence during pressure and offered not much going forward. Cameroon’s performance was a reminder of how the coach should have made efforts to recall some of the best stars of the squad. Ultimately, Seedorf was impressed with the way things turned out and shared his views.
