Cameroonian Footballer Makes Hopeful Prediction About Afcon Title

Cameroonian Footballer Makes Hopeful Prediction About Afcon Title 

Mohamed Fajah Barrie | BBC Sports

Cameroon football great Roger Milla has told the BBC he has faith his country can go on to win its sixth Africa Cup of Nations.

“I think that if we can get past Egypt, Cameroon will be favourites for this Nations Cup,” he said ahead of the two sides’ semi-final on Thursday at 19:00 GMT.

“Egypt is a very good footballing nation and they’ve proved that over the years,” he added. “But we also have our little team that is not bad. [Cameroon] might not have the technique of the Egyptians, but this team has the hunger to win and the power to block any team.”

Milla also argues that Cameroonian striker Vincent Aboubakar is not only the best player of the tournament, but “could be one of the greatest African footballers”, adding:

“Unfortunately, two years ago he suffered a very serious injury which sidelined him… [Now] when you see him playing, you can see a man who is motivated to catch up on lost time, and to make his country win. It’s no coincidence if he is the best scorer of this Afcon.”
