Intermediate Lions currently camping in Mbankomo in preparation for the 2021 African Nations Championship CHAN have joined the nation in mourning the slain school kids in Kumba Meme Division South West Region. Apart from dressing in black all day, the team observed a minute of silence before taking on Canon of Yaounde in a preparatory fixture on Saturday October 31, 2020.
According to Team Manager Timothe Atouba, the players who have been individually touched by the sad incidence needed an opportunity to send their condolences to the families of the killed children and also join the entire country in mourning as decreed by the President of the Republic this day. “The match against Canon played on the day of national mourning is just appropriate.” he noted.
The team under Coach Martin Ndtoungou Mpile is in camp for the third training camp after the COVID-19 break that is expected to run from October 25, 2020 to November 14, 2020.
