Samuel Eto’o insists Cameroon will play in the World Cup Final despite Uzbekistan setback


Samuel Eto’o has insisted Cameroon will reach the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar despite Friday’s International friendly loss to Uzbekistan .

Cameroon suffered a 2-0 loss to Uzbekistan on Friday but FECAFOOT President Samuel Eto’o believes the African country will remain focused on the objective .

“We really wanted to see the reaction of the team, and for the first time—I hoped for Cameroon to lose,” Eto’o told CRTV

” Our objective is still the same; to depart Qatar on the evening of December 18, the date of the World Cup final. We won’t lose sight of our objective,” He said .

Cameroon will play against Switzerland , Serbia and Brazil in the group stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup , how long they will stay depends on their ability to halt a negative record from previous finals

Cameroon have a poor record of six defeats from six games in the last two world cup appearances making Eto’o’s targeg in Qatar a tall mission for the Rigobert Song tutored Lions .

An impressive showing at the 2021 AFCON on home soil was halted by a shootout loss to Egypt in the semi-final and ultimately led to the appointment of Samuel Eto’o’s former teammate Rigobert Song .

Song immediately led Cameroon past Algeria in the World Cup qualification playoffs to book a spot in Qatar where football federation president aims for the team to stay until the final day .

That will be historic as no African country has ever reached the final of the World Cup, the farthest a Quarter final place .

Just like Samuel Eto’o , Ghanian President Nana-Addo is targeting not just the final but an historic title win for the Black Stars in Qatar .

Nana-Addo had at an event to receive the World Cup trophy on tour declared he is optimistic Ghana will make Africa proud by winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup .

Cameroon and Ghana will be joined by Morroco , Senegal and Tunisia as Africa’s representatives to the 2022 FIFA World Cup which kicksoff in Qatar on November 18, 2022 .
