The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon’s coach has said he and his squad left the Qatar 2022 World Cup in disappointment — as they would have done better.
“We did win the match but we are disappointed because we realise now we could have done better in this tournament,” Rigobert Song said.
Song, however, added that: “We do have a feeling of regret but you need to look on the positive side and I am satisfied with tonight’s performance.
Cameroon defeated Brazil, 1 goal to zero, in their final Group G match in Qatar on Friday, failing to make it through the knockout stage.
“I realise this was a historic victory now we have beaten Brazil, so my players should be congratulated.”
Song is positive
“It’s a real shame that we have to go home now, but you need to look on the bright side,” the 46-year-old said after losing to Brazil.
Song believes that the Lions can do better next time as the team is getting stronger by the day.
“We need to keep working and keep moving. I trust in my players. We are a young team and we have seen a team getting stronger and stronger.”
“The World Cup helped us to learn and we have to avoid making the mistakes we did in the first two matches.”
“I’m trying to get across a team spirit, that lion’s spirit, which has been the key to Cameroon teams over the years,” Song said.
“Perhaps we haven’t had enough time together, but we can be a very, very good team.”
