11days before the start of the AFCON, African and Cameroonian football star Roger Milla believes Cameroon have what it takes to defend the Africa Cup of Nations crown in Egypt.
The Indomitable lions who are currently in their first camp base in Valdebebas, Madrid defeated Zambia 2-1 on sunday and will face off against AD Alcorcon today.
Milla who scored four goals to help Cameroon become the first African side to reach the quarter-finals at the 1990 World Cup in Italy believes in the current crop of players in the indomitable lions team but advices Cameroon’s head coach Clarence Seedorf to be meticulous in his selections.
The former African footballer of the year who starred for Cameroon in 1984 when they won their first continental title before guiding the central Africans to their second triumph in 1988, has thrown his support behind the team says the coach has to set up a team that will suit the attributes of his players, while advising that Cameroon must defend properly but also have a good attack line that can make the difference when things get tough also calling on fans to be tolerant with Seedorf and his technical staff.
During the 1994 World cup, aged 42, Milla became the oldest goal-scorer in the tournament courtesy of his strike against Russia.
The Indomitable lions will depart Madrid for Doha, Qatar tomorrow for a second training camp scheduled 11-16th June will play their 3rd friendly game against Mali on 14 June.
