CHAN Preparations: Intermediate Lions Go On Break.
The head coach of Cameroon’s intermediate Lions, Martin Ndtoungou Mpile has given preselected lions some time off after closed to three training camps in post COVID-19 lockdown.
The announcement was made on Saturday November 21, 2020 after a 1-1 draw with Equato Guinean champions Akonangui FC at the CAF Excellent Center in Mbankomo.
The break, according to the head coach is to ensure the psychological stability of the players who have been in camp since September 25, 2020.
Ndtoungou Mpile has so far played five matches since replacing Clement Arroga last month, recording two wins and three draws.
The overall balance sheet of the intermediate Lions since the era of Clement Arroga, the lions have played 17 preparatory matches, recording 8 wins, 8 draws and one defeat.
The 62 year old is expected to make public a list of those to return to camp in the final lab in preparation for the African nations championship (CHAN) to be held in Cameroon in January next year.
CHAN Preps: Djibouti Lets Lead Slide To Inconsistent Cameroon
Djibouti shared the spoils once more with the Intermediate Lions after having taken the lead on Thursday November 12, 2020.
This was the reserved fixture of the CHAN preparations game against these two, after cameroon had come from behind to beat Djibouti 2-1, on November 9.
Martin Ndtongou Mpile set up with a 4-3-3 formation, starting with;
Goalkeeper : Dande junior
Defenders: youssoufa houzaifi, yamkam À Mbouri, Banga , Pendant.
Midfielders : Meyoupo, Onana et Tchuenté.
Forwards : Ako’o , Boyomo, Nlend.
Despite the gaffer repeating some names in his starting 11, and trying to stabilise the squad, his side still looked inconsistent, and at times, incapacitated.
Djibouti, just like on November 9, took the lead through Mourad Abdoulkader in the first half.
It looked a certain victory for the outsiders, until a Certain Serge Andolou came on later in the game to convert a penalty, deep into the second half for Cameroon.
It is outrageous how the intermediate Lions have had these ‘back and forth movements,’ under her new gaffer.
Ndtongou Mpile has drawn two, and won another two in his first four games this far. Simply not good enough for a team hosting the African Nations Championship in January.
CHAN Preparations:”I am satisfied that we won the game”, Martin Ndtongou Mpile.
The head coach coach of the intermediate Lions, Martin Ndtongou Mpile says he is happy and satisfied with his team 2-1 win over Djibouti.
The intermediate Lions outplayed Djibouti 2-1 in an international friendly in preparation for the upcoming African Nations Championship to be held in Cameroon next January 2021.
Djibouti took the lead as Mahamond Doualem scored the game’s opener from close range but two quick goals from PWD’s Basile Yankam and Ebembe Elimbi sealed a 2-1 win for Coach Martin Ndtongou’ s troops.
The 62 year-old was satisfied after a brilliant comeback against Djibouti.
“I am satisfied that we won the game. It’s a new team and I think we have so many things to work on. We are going to do it during the training sessions. We are going back to the errors we did today and I think that next time we are going to do better”, Ndtongou said after the game.
It should be noted that Martin Ndtongou has now recorded two wins and one draw since he succeeded Clement Arroga as coach of the intermediate Lions.
The reversed fixture between the two teams will come up still in Cameroon on November 12, 2020.
