With qualification on the line for the next stage of the ongoing Under 20 AFCON in Mauritania, Cameroon’s junior Lion Stephen Ikpeme is optimistic about the team’s chances of beating Uganda.
The U-20 selection of Cameroon will face the U-20 selection of Uganda this Wednesday, February 17 (5pm in Mauritania and 6pm in Cameroon) in a battle for the top of group A. Uganda currently leads Cameroon on goal difference, though both sides have three points each.
In the opening game, Cameroon defeated host Mauritania 1-0, while Uganda won Mozambique 2-0.
“We are ready because we have increased our confidence by winning the first game against Mauritania,” Stephen Ikpeme, midfielder of Njiko FC told FECAFOOT TV.
“We are coming with a full power to play against Uganda. We are ready, prepared, mentally and physically. We have one spirit and one unity because we speak with one mind. We are United ans that will give us the ability to come out victorious.”
Cameroon is looking to win this competition for a second time after they did so back in the 90s. Should Cameroon succeed in getting a draw, the team will look to end on a high note as they face Mozambique in their last group game.
