Super Eagles legend, Sunday Oliseh has named host of AFCON 2021, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon as genuine title contenders for the trophy, shunning his own country despite their impressive performance and their qualification to the next round.
Sunday Oliseh said the 2021 AFCON host nation, Cameroon, is strong, aggressive, and well organized.
The ex Ajax and Juventus midfielder was also full of praises for Cameroon forward and captain Vincent Aboubakar, who has scored five goals at the tournament so far, saying he is fun to watch.
Cameroon was the first country to qualify for the 2021 AFCON round of 16 after victories over Burkina Faso and Ethiopia. The Indomitable Lions finished on top of Group A with seven points after playing a 1-1 draw in their final game with Cape Verde on Monday.
In a tweet via his Twitter handle after Cameroon drew with Cape Verde, Oliseh wrote: “Tall, strong, solid, aggressive, compact, hosts & relatively well organized! The indomitable Lions team, though at times static & not so nimble-footed, is definitely in my opinion, a credible title contender and Fun to watch with Aboubakar. AFCON is heating up!!”
The Indomitable Lions are vying for a 6th AFCON title, one short of 7-time winners Pharaohs of Egypt.
