Cameroon coach Hugo Broos anticipates difficult Ghana tie

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos has praised the battling qualities of Ghana ahead of their semifinal clash at the African Cup on Nations.

The pair face off in a repeat of the 2008 semifinal which saw the Indomitable Lions reign triumph in a nervy encounter.

The Black Stars have grown from strength to strength since the 2008 meeting, reaching two AFCON finals and the quarterfinals of the World Cup while the Cameroonians have seen an overhaul in their squad and currently possessing a team which could be seen as one for the future.

And the Cameroonian boss admits it will be difficult as he leads his young guns to a territory.

“The game looks very difficult. When one sees the performances of Ghana in recent years, one realizes that it is a team that is accustomed to play the semi-finals and even the finals of Cup of Africa.

“In addition, what I have seen in recent weeks in terms of videos from Ghana leads me to recognize that it is a team that is going to be difficult to maneuver, which has a style different from that of Senegal,” Hugo Broos told camfoot

“It will soon find the faults of this team. You know, many did not believe in Cameroon, before the start of this competition.

“But in the course of the matches, confidence was born, the players gained experience and that is how we were able to beat Senegal who had a very good team,” he added.

The game is scheduled for 19:00 GMT in Franceville.
