JEAN: ROHR HAS BETTER KNOWLEDGE OF AFRICAN FOOTBALL

A top Cameroonian sports journalist Patrick Jean has condemned the lackluster performance of the national team in the World Cup qualifier clash against their Nigerian counterparts.


The African champions lost heavily 4-0 against the West African side as both sides raced to make the 2018 World Cup.

Jean was quoted to have boasted that the team would earn a point from the fixture in Uyo ahead of the game but the team lost scandalously. The journalist was pissed at the quality of display from the Cameroonian camp, even at all they lost the game.

“From the game, it’s clear to see the team that wanted it the most won it. The quality was very obvious. It was like watching men against school boys. No doubt Nigeria taught us some vital lessons,” he said.

The angry Jean added that the Nigerian national team coach Gernot Rohr proved to be superior to his counterpart.

“….with all due respect to Hugo Broos [the Cameroon coach], Gernot Rohr is a superior coach with better knowledge of African football,” he said. (more…)

ALGERIA CRASH OUT OF AFCON 2017

Algeria has crashed out of the ongoing African Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon after they played a 2-2 draw with Senegal in the final group clash.


The African side failed to win a single game in the tournament despite being branded one of the favourites to lift the title.

Leicester City striker Islam Slimani scored both goals during the game against Senegal – another favourite to win the title. Senegal equalized on both occasions that Slimani scored. Papakouly Diop and Moussa Sow ensured both sides shared the spoils. Slimani scored in the first ten minutes but Senegal levelled before the break. After the break, Slimani added another in the 52nd minute but the Senegalese side responded immediately in the 53rd minute through Sow. Slimani could have won the game and grabbed his hat trick but he went the effort wide. (more…)
