CAMEROON – Samuel Eto’o, a national legend and the President of the Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT), put more pressure on the senior football squad in November by predicting that an African team would compete in the World Cup final in 2022.

According to Eto’o, “Africa has always had the ability to produce a good World Cup,” but “up to now, we haven’t always shown our finest face.”

“Over the course of the years, African teams have gained an increasing amount of experience, and I believe they are now ready not just to compete in a World Cup, but also to win it.

It is not an easy task for a side that had a difficult path to qualification for the upcoming World Cup, which will be their seventh appearance overall and the most ever for an African nation. It wasn’t until winger Karl Toko Ekambi scored in extra time during the second leg of a contest against Algeria that we qualified, and even then, it was only because of the away goals rule.

After coach Rigobert Song had trouble reading several names during the announcement of the World Cup team, the local media began to speculate that Eto’o had interfered with the selection process in some way. This led to further controversy surrounding the World Cup squad selection process.

Due to all of these factors, the task that lies ahead for Song, who is competing in the same group as tournament favorites Brazil, Switzerland, and Serbia, has become a Herculean one.

The goalkeeper Andre Onana and the star midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, both of whom play in the Italian Serie A, as well as the captain and veteran attacker Vincent Aboubakar of Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr FC, are going to lead what may appear to be a “mission impossible.”

The team’s defensive anchor, Zambo Anguissa, has the work ethic of a stallion and an eye for a goal to match. Should he return to peak form and be able to inspire the team to effective performances, it is possible that the team will once again be in a position to make history.

In fact, history was achieved by the Indomitable Lions in 1990 when they became the first side from the African continent to qualify for the quarterfinals. Since then, only Senegal (2002) and Ghana (2010) have been able to accomplish this feat. Cameroon reached this point after claiming a 1-0 victory over the reigning champions, Argentina.

In spite of the fact that they came in last in their group at the subsequent competition, they once again made history. Roger Milla, then 42 years old, was a veteran player for this team in 1994, and he still maintains the record for being the oldest player to score a goal at any World Cup.

In addition, Song’s pupils are eager to demonstrate that their position as a nation to be reckoned with on the international scene has not been lessened despite the fact that they were unable to compete in Russia four years ago. But despite all of the obstacles stacked against them, are they capable of breaking their own records and living up to Eto’o’s words?
