Head coach of the Cameroonian national team, Rigobert Song, was satisfied with his side’s draw against Guinea in their opening game of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Song admitted the game was tough for his side and it has been evident all throughout AFCON Côte d’Ivoire 2023.

“The start of the match was difficult for us, especially in the first 30 minutes. You know how it has been in the start of this tournament; it has always been difficult. We saw how some teams started this tournament,” said Song

The former Cameroonian player added that they controlled the game but couldn’t pick all the points.

“We controlled the flow of the match, but we were not able to score the second goal to take the victory, I hope to do it in the next match.”

The Cameroonian coach explained that he would correct the mistakes his players made during the clash with Guinea before their next game which will be against Senegal.

“We all saw the match, there is a positive part.

“We will correct the mistakes, and the players will know their mission in the next four days.

For my part, I will work with my assistants on the technical team to correct the problems we encountered,” he concluded.
