Captain Choupo-Moting Speaks For The First Time After Qualification caught up with the Cameroon skipper, and he had these words for the fans ‘I am very happy for all country and the team. It was not easy because we had a certain pressure, but at 3-0 I think we had a very good game and good actions’. When the birth day celebrant was asked about how he felt going into the upcoming AFCON, he went on ‘I feel great, everything is fine, let’s see how it goes”.

The latter turned 30 on March 23, and he remains the only player under head coach Clarence Seedorf to have had the armband twice. The goal-hunter did not fail in
his task, as he put in a shift, scoring Cameroon’s first of 3 goals against the Comoros, and his leadership qualities together with his work ethics gave Cameroon the victory.
Fans gave him a standing ovation when he was protected by the coach through a substitution, as the forward was already limping for large parts of the second half. The same scenario occurred on match
day 3 when he scored a goal that was nominated for goal of the year by CAF, against Malawi. Choupo has proven to be capable of inspiring the Lions when he is captain, and Seedorf should be nursing the
idea of making him the permanent skipper.
