Players to watch
PWD of Bamenda have a lot of potentials especially coming from the middle of the park, with the addition of a ball career in Mundi Kagawa just back from injury. Mbah Louis is an exceptional talent who has in him a pass from left or right foot_his combination with Ade Mineolf and Kagawa playing ahead of the two may cause damage for the Astres defense.
One man stands out for the quick transitional play of the Astres team_Siloh Michael starts the attack from his holding midfield role while players like Abena Messina, and Berteau Simo are quick off the flanks, and always provide crosses for Christian Deugoue to feed in his center forward position.
