“My players and l are set, confident and serene ahead of the start of the competition.”
“We have reduced the frequency of our training sessions from two and a half hours to an one hour thirty minutes in order for the girls to get enough rest after our six weeks camping in Turkey”.
“I know many of you are expecting the final list of the players but am sorry you can’t have it today, reason being that out of the fifteen players, two are still uncertain about their presence and we do not want to be embarrassed.”
“Concerning the players taking in the ongoing camp, l have selected home based players and some key players playing abroad, the youngest player aged 17 and the oldest 23”.
“We Count on the entire Cameroonian public to massively turn out and give us the home support. Especially for our opening game slated for Saturday at 5pm against Kenya”.
As for now Nigeria remains the lone African nation to have landed on Cameroonian soil. Egypt and Senegal are expected to venture in the nation’s political capital Yaounde come Wednesday.
