The minimalist success (1-0) won by Cameroon against Burundi on Thursday was not to the liking of the president of the Cameroonian federation.
Cameroon provided the minimum service on Thursday against Burundi. For their second match of the CAN 2023 qualifiers, the Indomitable Lions, who had seen their first match against Kenya postponed, settled for a 1-0 victory, sealed at the half-hour mark thanks to a goal from Karl-Toko Ekambi, the hero of qualification for the World Cup during the play-offs against Algeria.
I’m not happy at all
Present alongside his players in Dar Es Salam, Samuel Eto’o clearly did not appreciate the spectacle offered by the semi-finalists of the last AFCON. And he did not hesitate to say it in the locker room. ” I’m not happy. I’m not happy at all, he thundered as we can see in a video broadcast by the Cameroonian federation. You represent the national team of Cameroon. I don’t care who is in front of you, you have to do the job. I cried for years, because we missed World Cups, but I know what problem I had. That’s not going to happen as long as I’m president. I took this presidency to change things and places will be expensive. No one has a guaranteed place on this team. If you want to wear the jersey of this team, you do the job when you come to this team. Otherwise, don’t come and I’ll be happy. I will play with children.»
I would give my life for this country
And the former Barça striker was not done. “I sat there 26 years. I know what you think. You think I’m a bastard, but I was the best sitting there and I know why I failed. I will give you everything even my life so that you are in the best conditions, even my life, he added. But when we come, it’s Cameroon, guys. Cameroon, there is nothing more beautiful. I would give my life for this country. I have great esteem for my country. I will get there with you or without you. If you want to be part of the trip, you will have to move. No one is guaranteed to be at the World Cup. And if that’s what I saw today, you won’t be on this list. I need more, I need a lot more. Because I dream of winning this World Cup.
“I’m not happy at all.”
