As the Centre region rounded off its mini-interpools this Monday 5th, Mercure SA of Bafia emerged champions.
Kick442.com hooked up with team Captain Serges Moufong Aboutha to hear their ambitions for the national interpools.
“Defeating Foudre FC is so shocking but giving us more strength to prepare for the interpools. We know what is facing us, it is a difficult mission we are getting into but we will surprise many as we did today”
He believes that their success is largely due to hard work and discipline.
“We remain so submissive to our trainers and take every information they give us. We have worked hard to arrive here and I’m so thankful that God has granted us victory”
The hotly contested encounter between Mercure SA and Foudre Sportif of Akonolinga ended in a parity score much to the disappointment of team Captain Serges of Mercure who was however smiling at the end.
“Personally I never wanted this game to be decided in the penalty shots but when it reached that point we just had to do what we have been told in our training sessions. The secret remains ‘kick well’, with much confidence of converting.
Mercure SA of Bafia will face Foncha Street FC of Bamenda and Étoile filante de Garoua on national interpools.
