Indomitable Lions coach Hugo BROOS says there is a lot of enthusiasm and fighting spirit in the Australian team but is convinced that the Lions can beat them.

"We have watched a few of their games. They have a lot of enthusiasm and fighting spirit but we have to beat them," says Hugo BROOS during a prematch press conference today in St Peters burg.

Hugo BROOS also said victory will be gotten tomorrow if the Lions start the game well and successfully control the first 20 mins of the game. "If there is anything I would love to see better tomorrow (Thursday) are the first 20 mins of the match." Said BROOS.

He said, he regrets the fact that although Cameroon played well against Chile, the Lions did not manage their first 20 mins of play well.

Asked about key scorer Aboubakar and the other goal attackers, Hugo BROOS said;

"It does not matter who scores the goal, all that matters is that a goal be scored...I hope we score one goal more than our opponents Australia tomorrow."

The coach however expressed indignation at the fact that drivers come late to pick the team up for training and take the team through traffic causing hour long delays to trainings.


The offensive midfielder said during the press Conference that they have no pressure ahead of Thursday's clash against Australia. He said they are conscious of the fact that it will be a decisive game, so they are ready to give in their best.

Cameroon must beat Australia tomorrow in this outing to settle the last duel against Germany. Match will be played at 4pm Cameroon time and 6pm time in St Petersburg.
