Former Manchester City midfielder,  Yaya Toure says Cameroon didn’t look like a team that prepared for Penalty Shootouts during their semifinal clash against Egypt on Thursday. 

The game ended in a goalless draw after regular play time,  with Egypt carrying the day on penalty shootouts by three-goals-to-one.

Harold Moukoudi, Lea Siliki and Njie Clinton missed their penalties as it ended 3-1 to the Pharaohs.

The 2015 AFCON winner said he didn’t feel like Cameroon prepared for the shootouts against Egypt.


“Egypt deserved their win. They have been playing really well defensively.  I don’t know if Vincent Aboubakar had one shot on target.  They frustrated Cameroon”, Toure told the BBC

“When I was with Ivory Coast,  after each session we had a training shootouts.  It did not look like they had done that. As soon as they missed one, there was preasure and more preasure. And you see with Njie, I don’t know what was going through his head”, he added

It was a terrible day for the home fans as they went home frustrated following the lions’ defeat.

The boys of Antonio Conceicao will take on Burkina Faso in the third place classification match on Saturday at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde at 7pm.
