CHAN RWANDA 2016 – Cameroon poised after bonus booster

The players of the Intermediate Lions of Cameroon have expressed satisfaction with their officials, and promise to do better and win more games in the ongoing Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda.

They made this known today after they were paid their bonuses as promised before the start of the competition. The federation president Tombi a Roko Sidiki had earlier informed them in a pre-competition meeting, `your money is available, we will pay as per our set objectives, you go across the first round, you are paid, and this throughout your stay here (ndlr Rwanda).

As such, after receiving their dues this Tuesday, captain Hugo Nyame, all smiles and serein declared, “We are very happy with our officials, they gave us all what was promised, we`re grateful.” And the players remained professional in their attitude, going about business as usual despite their encouraging play and win over The D.R. Congo. For the captain, “that win is now behind us, we know Cote d`Ivoire as a good team so we`ll have to prepare hard for that game on Saturday.”

And the players were seen seriously preparing at the Huye stadium during their normal training session this morning. Prior to its start, the team`s coach Martin Ndtoungou Mpile re-iterated the need for them to forget the game against the Leopards and focus on Saturday`s game. “You guys were good yesterday,” Mpile said, “but there were some errors especially in midfield and upfront that we need to correct.”

The officials of the Cameroon federation have remained close to the players since the start of the competition, proceeding with moral boosting meetings and promises of providing all their needs in the competition. With the payment of their bonuses for their brilliant finish in round one, the stage has been set for a hitch free continuation of the Intermediate Lions in their bid to bag home the Pan African trophy for local based players.
