Confed Cup: Toothless Indomitable Lions worry coach

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos admits  his side are lacking a clinical striker as the Indomitable Lions struggle to score at the Confederations Cup.  “If you have one [striker] in mind, please tell me his name and I’ll go straight away and see him,” Broos said.

Vincent Aboubakar of Cameroon goes past Mark Milligan of Australia during the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 Group B match between Cameroon and Australia at Saint Petersburg Stadium on June 22, 2017 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

“We’re searching, we’re searching, we’re searching and we keep on searching but you have to be able to find one. Someone who scores goals. “Yes, it’s very easy to say you haven’t got players who score (but) you have to find them.

“You should know as someone from Cameroon that Cameroonian football is not as rich (in strikers) at the moment.”

Defender Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui was the top scorer for Cameroon as they won the Africa Cup of Nations in January, he scored two of the team’s seven goals in Gabon. Despite a lack of finishing prowess Broos insists his side are making progress. “A year ago we didn’t even have a team. Today you have a team that won the Africa Cup of Nations and that’s progress,” the Belgian coach added.

That’s not how it works. Let this team grow, let it get some experience and if tomorrow I can find someone who scores goals with his eyes closed, he’ll be in my team.”

Cameroon face crucial back-to-back games against Nigeria in 2018 World Cup qualifying at end of August and early September.

Nigeria top Group B with six points after two matches while Cameroon have just two, with only the pool winners qualifying for the World Cup in Russia next year.
