Confederations Cup: Cameroon Trains Ahead Of Chile Clash
Cameroon’s national team are training on a Moscow pitch for their first game in the Confederations Cup against Chile, which is set for Sunday.
The players practised their skills on the Spartak stadium training grounds under the watchful eye of the team’s chief coach Hugo Broos, who is in his first job as a national team coach, having been appointed in early 2016.
Broos led the national team to their first Africa Cup of Nations title, since 2002 with a 2-1 win over Egypt in the final played in Gabon early this year.
Olympique Lyonnais defender Nicolas Nkoulou is the only player from the 23-man squad that competed at the Nations Cup not to return as he has since retired from international football.
Striker Benjamin Moukandjo, who captained the team to success in Gabon, remains a key member of the squad with eight goals so far for his country. His fellow forward, Vincent Aboubakar, currently on loan from Porto to Besiktas, has 16 international goals to his name, the highest scorer in their current squad.
The Confederations Cup kicks off in Russia on Saturday, June 17.
