AFCON 2019: “No one is going to have an easy day playing against Cameroon in Egypt”- Clarence Seedorf

In an interview granted to, Clarence Seedorf revisited his first nine months as Head Coach of the Indomitable Lions and assured they are ready to give in their best at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

Clarence Seedorf qualified the work done so far as “productive”, given the manner in which Cameroon succeeded to qualify for the AFCON 2019.

“It was definitely an electric ending to qualifying with all the changes at the last minute. We had to win against Comoros, but it also confirmed the work we’d done up until that moment had been really productive…” Clarence Seedorf said.

“Ending up with the same points as Morocco, who are one of the favourites to win the AFCON, with only two goals difference says a lot about how we performed and prepared for the other games.” He said.

On the question to know whether he is confident about his team’s competence, the former Dutch star revealed Cameroon has what it takes to win the competition.

“We’re in good shape and things are positive but then we need to translate this into matches. No one is going to have an easy day playing against Cameroon in Egypt.” Clarence Seedorf disclosed.

The lions, who are presently African champions will have to defend this title at the 2019 Africa cup of Nations in Egypt, come June alongside their coaches Clarence Seedorf and Patrick Kluivert.
