Astres of Douala’s head coach Anicet Mbarga Foe counts on the resilience and experience of his players as the Brazilians of Bepanda as they affectionately called, will face PWD Social Football Club of Bamenda in the Cameroon cup finals slated for Sunday March 13, at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium.
The fixture to be played under the watchful eyes of Cameroon’s Prime Minister Chief Joseph Dion Ngute personal representative of the Head of State has been anticipated for eight months before this weekend.
Anicet Mbarga, former Ending Sport of Lekie shared his thoughts about the final during Astres training session at the Omnisport Annex one stadium on Friday.
“We are physically and technically ready for the game as the D-day draws closer. We have been working hard for the past eight months. So as to produce an impressive game against PWD Bamenda”.
“Throughout our stay in Douala, emphasis was laid on our technical aspect of the game. Arriving Yaounde this morning after a long journey, the players were given the opportunity to relax themselves before we could resume training this afternoon.”
Astres will have to do without some of their 2020-2021 players. But could count on experienced campaigners like Leon Boyomo, Romeo Tchamda and Eric Api who won the Cameroon cup finals with New Stars.
“Our training session held this afternoon was focused on athletism, creation of a cohesive play style and ball possession.”
“It’s true both sides will be confronting each other for the fourth time. With PWD losing the Cameroon cup finals twice and Astres thrice. We have analysed the good and bad points that have contributed in Astres’ defeat in the Cameroon cup finals for the past years. And are certain of one thing, Astre winning the silver trophy on Sunday 13 and taking it back to Douala.” He concluded.
PWD will have to do with out some of their key names like Haschou Kerrido, Mael Dindjeke, Nchindo John Bosco, Neloh Kevin and Mfegue Omgba. But could still count on Boung Joel, Ngwang Brian, Burinyuy Derrick and Mohamed Aboubakar.
“However, we know playing against a Public Works Department team with a strong fan based, won’t be an easy game at all.”
Sunday’s Cameroon cup finals, will be a tactical battle between David Pagou and Anicet Mbarga Foe. Both trainers are considered two of the best in the country and have coached the different categories of the national teams. Notably the intermediate lions for Pagou David and under-17 Lions for Mbarga Foe.
