Clarence Seedorf is well traveled, from Italy to China and latter Spain, but the gaffer admitted that football in the African continent is very competitive.

The head coach of the indomitable Lions replied as to why his team should not be expected to brush aside the Comoros “we are talking about the goals in Cameroon but I haven’t seen other teams in Africa scoring many goals“. “There are lots of draws, 1 to nil scorelines. This is African football and it is very competitive, we cannot think we are going to score four because it is Comoros”.

The gaffer has found African teams difficult to break down, and his attackers have been able to score just 2 in 5. The reversed fixture in September ended one all and anything close to this on Saturday would be enough to see the Lions through, and if Cameroon can open the flood gates(score heavily) against Comoros, the top of the pool awaits them as Malawi held Morocco to a goalless draw on Saturday.

It should be noted that Cameroon is invincible in the Omnisport stadium Yaounde, but they have had frustrating draws; 2006 World cup qualifiers draw against Egypt that denied them a place in Germany, and the 2013 one all draw against little known Cape Verd that also knocked plans of South Africa away.
