After having a well fulfilled year termed in football jargons a ‘breakthrough year’, that includes winning the U-17 AFCON, voted best player in the U-17 AFCON, earning a maiden call up to the national team, scoring a first goal against Alcorcon and being on his way to Toulouse, the baby skipper has told kick442.com categorically that the team needs to fantastically represent and not only make Cameroon proud, but the rest of Africa.

For those who have watch the kid regularly, there is no thinking twice about his outrageous talent – blink twice on the field of play and you might just be left with another Cameroon Mesult Ozil to deal with, with those inch – perfect, eye of the needle passes.

Steve Mvoue in an exclusive after the draws, said”I think that the draws are complicated, but I also think we can take on them – we don’t win a game before getting to the field, same as we don’t get defeated before entering so, I think it is a group that would need maximum concentration and for us to win our games and try not to be defeated”.

The baby skipper continued “as champions, our objective is to play well, play with fair play, and also to make the Continent proud because we are just 4 of us representing the continent and it needs us to give our best throughout the tournament. My principal objective as the best player at the AFCON U-17 is for us to go far as a group and my objective is to give the best of me. We nees to go as far as possible and after that everybody can distinguish themselves”.

The Under17 Lions triumphed over 7 African nations in Tanzania a couple of months back, but they are going in this time against 24 teams and having been lodged in group E consisting of heavyweights like Spain and Argentina, the Christ the Redeemer status in front of the Maracana, in Rio would need to play a big part, if anything is to come out for the junior Lions.
