Cameroon Can Easily Retain AFCON Title – Roger Milla


Former football great Roger Milla believes Cameroon can go all the way in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations tournament that will kick off on June 21st in Egypt.

The star, who was part of the team that won the African title in 1984 and 1988, is confident that the Indomitable Lions can easily see off opposition in their group.

“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,” told the 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, [coach Clarence] 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,”

The Indomitable Lions will open the defence of their title on June 25 against Guinea-Bissau, before playing Ghana in their second match.

They will face Benin on July 2 in their final group match.
