Cameroun's towering defender Andre Bikey says the Indomitable Lions are not leaving anything to chance ahead of their MTN Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final against Tunisia in Tamale today.“Tunisia is a good team and have good players, discipline on the field and a very tactically correct team,” says the 23-year-old, who plays in England for Reading.
“I think they are one of the most organised teams in the competition, it will be hard to beat them but we have to give our all and play at our best to win the game.”
Bikey says Cameroun have put behind them the performance in their opening match, where defending African champions Egypt beat them 4-2.
“It s true we did not start the competition off in the way we would have liked to after the first match we all sat down before the next training session and we said that it is not possible for a team like ours to leave the tournament early.
“We know that we have great individual players and it was up to us to work together to change the situation that we were in after the opening game and thankfully we know have done that.”
Asked about their chances of winning a record-equalling fifth MTN Africa Cup of Nations, Bikey added: “At the Nations Cup anything is possible, let's think about Tunisia first.”
