Highly respected Cameroonian journalist Patrick Jean has hit out at the poor display of the senior national team of Cameroon in their heavy 0-4 loss to Nigeria in yesterday’s World Cup 2018 Qualifiers.
Jean who boasted before the game that the worst his team would get is a draw said the Nigerians lead by captain John Obi Mikel played like men while the Cameroonian team played like school boys.
He lamented the gulf of class between the two teams from players and even the technical crew of both sides, citing Nigeria’s superiority as the reason behind the resounding win for the Super Eagles.
” From the game it’s clear to see that the team that wanted it the most won it. The quality was very obvious. It was like watching men against school boys. No doubt Nigeria taught us some vital lessons yesterday “, Jean told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” The players who were on the bench for Nigeria are players who are good enough to start ahead of some of the players who started for Cameroon. Also with all due respect to Hugo Broos, Gernot Rohr is a superior coach with better knowledge of African football.
” It’s easy to say we could or should have done this or that during the game. This players should have played ahead of that player, very easy to say but in honest we know the Nigerians deserve to beat us even by a wider margin. We didn’t play as champions of Africa”.
