 Cameroon coach Song warns Brazil: You’ll see a different Indomitable Lions

Cameroon coach Rigobert Song has warned Brazil his side will throw the proverbial kitchen sink at them during their do or die Group Gclash on Friday.

Cameroon started their World Cup campaign with a 1-0 loss against Switzerland before coming from 3-1 down to get a point in a six-goal thriller versus Serbia.

Brazil have already advanced to the Round of 16 after winning their opening two games as the remaining three teams chase the other spot from Group G.

Indomitable Lions coach Song insists his team have nothing to lose and will bravely battle for maximum points at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in hope of qualifying for the knock-outs.

“[On Friday] I will put a team that is there to win. I’m convinced that you’ll see a different side to Cameroonian football because we have nothing to lose. We’re going to give everything we’ve got in the tank and see if it pays off,” Song told the media.

“We know that Brazil are a beautiful team and we have a lot of respect for them. But in football, there are realities that are slightly different and sometimes there are upsets. Anything is possible in football. That’s why I’m firmly convinced that we are capable of winning.

“You mentioned it yourself, thank you, this motivates me. Anything is possible. Friday’s game will be an absolute scorcher and we’re going into it hoping to take away three points, regardless of our formation, regardless of our behaviour on the pitch, we want to come away with the three points.”

If Cameroon defeat Brazil on Friday and the result in the match between Switzerland and Serbia go their way, then the Indomitable Lions will join Senegal and Morocco, who have qualified from Africa so far, in the Round of 16.
