International Friendly: Cameroon Player Rating Vs Japan As Franck Evina Makes His Debut



Elvis Kang, Sports Writer-Cameroon

Toni Conceicao sides came into the game with a 100% record with four games without a loss ever since he took over from Clarence Seedorf as head coach


Japan and Cameroon played out a thrilling goalless draw on Friday as Conceicao side’s wait for a second win since he was appointed head coach of the indomitable lions.

It was a game of two halves, with Cameroon dominating the opening period and brilliant goalkeeping from the Cameroon keeper Fabrice Ondoa denied several scoring opportunities for team Japan.

However, Toni Conceicao team took control of proceedings after half-time, with no short on target and some near misses denying them a second win under his leadership.

And while both sides had half-chances late on to steal a win, a draw was perhaps the right result given their respective halves.


Samuel Oum Gouet -8

Unlucky not to score, and I thought he was excellent today. Lively all match and always turning up in attacking areas, Gouet looked to stamp his authority on the match. He was left frustrated by a few stray passes and wayward flicks, but overall sharp and decisive play in the attacking third. Good stuff from Gouet for his first call up for team Cameroon.

Fabrice Ondoa – 7.5 

Made a crucial save in the second half and when he could, with Yuya Osako managing to bounce the ball beside his despairing dive. Got a slice of revenge in the second half though, standing up tall to deny the same player in the second period.

Harold Moukoudi – 7

Picked for the starting line-up, he was rarely troubled. He and Michael Ngadeu did get caught out by some balls over the top, with the Japanese employing a very high line.

Andre Zambo Anguissa – 7

Zambo deserves some credit for his work rate today, getting up and down the pitch to put in a shift on both sides of the ball. He was in among the attack as you would expect, with some silky smooth passes and touches to set up others. More like it from Zambo today, and this is the standard we will come to expect from him.

Nicolas Ngamaleu – 7

Agonizingly close to scoring with his effort header across the bar, but was a constant threat today with his movement and driving at the defense. He tracked back with his usual zeal and endeavor, putting in a right shift as usual.

Michael Ngadeu – 6.5

Was alert to danger as wherever Minomino went, he followed and was just as ready to engage in physical battles. When the Japanese looked to progress through midfield, he stepped up nicely to pick out their passes.

Yan Brice – 6

Took time to properly adjust to the game as he hit stray passes earlier in the first half and over-hit crosses into the box. Looked sharper in the second half, which he began with a nicely clipped ball before showing the defensive awareness

Serge Tabekou – 6

Was too slow when the ball came to his feet in and around the box. Had he been sharper, there were shooting opportunities for him but he took known.

Karl Toko Ekambi – 6

A more selfless performance from him. His cross pass to Ngamaleu was excellent as was his team-oriented contributions late in the game with his flick to Franck Evina the highlight.

Amboise Oyongo – 5

He wasn’t outstanding by any stretch of the imagination, but more so in the second half, he offered decent support down the left when  Ngamaleu drifted into more central areas.

Fai Collins – 5

The right-back didn’t have a great influence on the side as he didn’t often trouble his opposing full-back. There were times when his positioning worked to Cameroon favour but he wasn’t a constant threat.


Franck Evina (Nicolas Ngamale, 68 min ) – 6

Had little involvement after coming on in the closing stages.

Jean Emile Onana ( Yan Brice , 46 min ) – 5

Fabrice Olinga ( Serge Tebekou, 76 min) – 5

Ahmad Toure ( Ambroise Oyong0, 83 min) N/A

Serge Leuko ( Fai Collins 87, min) N/A

Cameroon will be disappointed not to have taken a win, but a draw was probably the fair result. One of the more entertaining 0-0 draws you will ever see as well, with the ball zipping from end to end and several opportunities for both sides throughout the match. Cameroon enjoyed the lion share of possession, but couldn’t find the cutting edge on the afternoon.
