The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are set to face off with the Cape Verde national team in a must win encounter as both sides seek the ticket to take part in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in South Africa next year.
In the run up to the encounter in Cameroon on Sunday 14 October, Cameroon midfielder Alex Song says a key driving factor for the Indomitable Lions is revenge as they look to overturn the 0 – 2 deficit they carry from the first meeting.
Cameroon missed the last AFCON tournament and Song, speaking to mtnfootball.com, said they have no option but to better their performance in Cape Verde in order to make a return to the continental showpiece.
-We are filled with a feeling of revenge. In Cape Verde, we did not play to our full capacity. I think that it is important today because we questioned ourselves. And what we showed over there was not our true face.
-On the contrary, we have to raise the flag as our elders have done in the past, even if we are in a difficult position today. It is up to us to redeem ourselves. I think that we all have to roll up our sleeves and pitch in, give our all and show a better image of Cameroon, he said.
