Actually defending champion Cameroon would have had a home game at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and would have been whipped to the sixth title by almost 45,000 frenetic supporters in the national stadium of the capital Yaoundé. But for the fourth time in a row, the African continental tournament is not taking place in the country actually intended for it. Security concerns and a paralyzing preparation prompted the African association CAF the tournament at short notice elsewhere to award. Now, the indomitable lions abroad in Egypt must try again to be successful. Not easy! Although five African West African nations have emerged as champions in the previous twelve African Cup matches in Arab countries, the last such triumph is already 25 years back (Nigeria 1994 in Tunisia). Cameroon was crowned king of Africa in 1988 in Morocco.

Cameroon – Statistics & current form
The biggest star in the Cameroon team is undoubtedly the four-time Champions League winner and current coach Clarence Seedorf. On the other hand, you will not find the big player names in this Africa Cup with the indomitable lions. But already in the recent title win 2017 Cameroon was due to ten cancellations in advance with an inexperienced and relatively unknown squad at the start. The end is known. Again, Coach Seedorf relies on an extremely young team in his first African Cup. Only five players are 30 years or older. Including former Bundesliga striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
At his club Paris Saint Germain, Choupo usually does not go beyond the role of reservist. In the squad of Cameroon, he is thus not an isolated case, which caused massive criticism in the home to Seedorf, as this builds to the taste of the press on too many players who came in the past season on little to no playing time. Vincent Aboubakar would certainly have liked to have Seedorf, but the anguish of Porto is hurt. The indomitable lions have prepared themselves in Valdebebas, the training ground of Real Madrid. There followed another training camp in sunny Doha.
There, the dress rehearsal also took place before the tournament kick-off on Tuesday, when Cameroon will participate for the 19th time in the Africa Cup of Nations.

The only bankruptcy was away in November against the endpoint Moroccans. The past showed that there were rarely any really good goalkeeping achievements in the Africa Cup. This time it could be different, because goalkeeper André Onana is considered a great Trumf of the Cameroonians. The 23-year-old sensationally reached the Champions League semi-final with Ajax Amsterdam and has long been one of the best keepers on the European continent. On Tuesday, Onana will help bolster his team’s favorite role. In Cameroon vs. Guinea-Bissau’s bookmakers’ odds indicate that the victory of the untamable lions is very likely.

In addition, there are often demonstrations in the country, which is due to the difficult political, economic and social circumstances in the country. In the Africa Cup 2019 the greyhounds go with the most inexperienced cadre of all participants. The 23 nominated players come on average to less than nine internationals and only five players have already achieved an international match. The majority of the coached by Baciro Cande troupe plays football at Portuguese clubs and was born in Portugal. Only four players are active outside of Europe, including former Liverpool striker Toni Silva. A key role could be played by Romario Balde. The former Portuguese youth national player celebrated his debut for the national team of Guinea-Bissau only this year and has the potential to surprise.
