Broos: Cameroon Will Help Nigeria Qualify For World Cup

Broos: Cameroon Will Help Nigeria Qualify For World Cup

By Nurudeen Obalola in Yaounde:

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos has promised to help the Super Eagles qualify for the 2018 World Cup after his own team crashed out of the race on Monday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Indomitable Lions drew 1-1 with Nigeria here in Yaounde on Monday to end the African champions’ World Cup dreams, while Nigeria opened up a six-point gap in Group B of the African qualifying series.

“We are an ambitious team and we had two goals early this year: to win the Africa Cup of Nations and qualify for the World Cup,” Broos said.

“But in life it’s almost impossible to achieve all your goals. We were poor on Friday, but on Monday we did a very good performance. If we had been a little lucky we could have won.

“We’ve had some luck before, but this time we weren’t so lucky. We’re out ofbthe World Cup, but we will take our remaining two games very seriously and try to beat Zambia away and Algeria here.

“Maybe we’ll help our friends Nigeria to qualify by beating Zambia and Algeria.”

Broos, who has been under attack in the Cameroon media, insists that he wants to stay on and build  another successful team.

“We’re in a bad phase at the moment but we need to be patience and try to develop for the next AFCON,” he added.

  • We don’t need your help. We will beat Zambia here in Uyo and nothing can stop us. That is if Zambia is able to even win away in Algeria.

    • Chi, this is not a classy response to someone being graceful in defeat. Grow up. The world is bigger than Nigeria. We Nigerians need to start learning how to be graceful and to take the high road.

      • Thank you for your intelligent comment. Cameroon coach spoke with the spirit of friendliness and brotherhood and we should demonstrate some maturity by appreciating that from a coach that lost to us who normally should be seeking our downfall but decided to do otherwise. We should not think we have crossed the Rubicon bcos we beat Cameroon. Whatever anybody can do to help us qualify for world cup should be welcome and appreciated

    Lol.. ..you guys should take it easy o

  • ur help won’t be needed because we are going to thrash zambia

  • Too much mouth. Nigeria has lost vital points in the past, don’t get overly excited yet because there are still scenarios where Nigeria may not qualify For the sundial.
    But it’s not just about the soccer game, it’s about how we respond to graciousness. Even if we don’t need any help, it’s not polite to say it outright like that.
    Don’t forget that sport is supposed to be a friendship bridge. A better response would have been ” Thank you, we appreciate your great sportmanship. You have a great team and we wish you luck in your remaining games”.
