Russia 2018: Nigeria follow path of African losing nations http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/russia-2018-nigeria-follow-path-of-african-losing-nations http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/russia-2018-nigeria-follow-path-of-african-losing-nations Russia 2018: Nigeria follow path of African losing nations

The super Eagles of Nigeria have had a very catastrophic game against Croatia who beat them 2-0. They join Egypt and Morocco, all who so far have not been able to score a single goal, let alone win a match.

{loadposition myposition}

Nigeria was considered at the beginning of the competition as one of the African countries in the Russian world cup, one could rely on, as majority of fans contacted, indicated.

All of the confidence was turned into disappointment when Nigeria found themselves preventing the Croatian team from increasing the number of goals instead of trying to respond and even see how they could at least end with a draw.

All of the key players in the West African country, didn’t have the performances that were expected of them. There were the likes of Obi Mikel, Victor Moses and Alex Iwobi, all whose presence wasn’t felt.

The Croatian goal scorers were Mario Mandzukic and Modric, whose goal was a penalty.

Other matches were equally played on 16 June 2018: Argentina played against Iceland (1-1) for the first group D match of the tournament. Group C encounters included, France 2-1 Australia and Peru 0-1 Denmark.

For the moment, France leads Group C with 3 points, followed by Denmark 3 points, Australia 0 point and Peru 0 point.

As for Group D, Croatia are 1st with 3 points, while Argentina are on the 2nd spot with 1 point, followed by Iceland with 1 point and then finally Nigeria who have 0 point.

Cameroon-Anglophone crisis: In name of the government,Tchiroma rejects in strong terms Amnesty international report http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-anglophone-crisis-in-name-of-the-government-tchiroma-rejects-in-strong-terms-amnesty-international-report http://cameroon-concord.com/local/cameroon-anglophone-crisis-in-name-of-the-government-tchiroma-rejects-in-strong-terms-amnesty-international-report Cameroon-Anglophone crisis: In name of the government,Tchiroma rejects in strong terms Amnesty international report

The Minister of Communication Issa Tchiroma Bakari organised a press conference on Thursday 14 June 2018, in order to debunk the allegations of Amnesty international concerning the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon, which according to them, are false.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Since the begining of the unrest in the English speaking Regions of Cameroon, Amnesty International, an organisation for the fight of human rights has written several reports about the issue from 2017 to 2018.

In their reports, the organisation holds the Cameroonian army guilty of causing havoc within the population and merciless torturing of alleged secessionist terrorists.

in reaction to the accusations, the government as usual through their communication minister Issa Tchiroma Bakari, organised a press conference on 14 June to give their own part of the story and prove the human rights organisation wrong.

The public outing of Tchiroma on Thursday was meant to tackle Amnesty International's report of June 12 2018.

World cup kickoff: Role of Cameroon in Russia http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/world-cup-kickoff-role-of-cameroon-in-russia http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/world-cup-kickoff-role-of-cameroon-in-russia World cup kickoff: Role of Cameroon in Russia

The 21st edition of the world cup begins on Thursday 14 June in Russia, but Cameroon’s indomitable lions are absent, as they failed to qualify.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Now, the question is does Roger Milla’s fatherland have any role to play on Putin’s ground?

Certainly, Cameroon has a role to play during this great event; that of spectators and fans of the other participating nations, especially those from Africa.

Apart from being spectators, there is another role, an even more important one, which Biya’s country has to play in this world cup and that is the role of the media.

Several media organs in Cameroon, ranging from the public to the private sector, already have their reporters in Russia who will be relaying events from there as they happen.

The presence of private media houses in particular, is highly noted this year. As Cameroon Concord learned from their colleagues of Cameroun Sports, journalists like; David Eyengue Nzima, from Le Jour Newspaper, Jean Jacques Ewong, Raphael Happi, David Eyengue, Sylvain Kwambi, Richard Naha, Frida nolla amongst others all from Cameroon, will be live from Russia. 

The competition of 64 matches, is to run from 14 June – 15July 2018 and will be played in 11 cities.

An opening ceremony is scheduled to take place today 14 June as from 3:30 pm, after which the first match of the competition will be played between Russia and Saudi Arabia at 4:00 pm.

Russia 2018: Africa well represented in world cup http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/russia-2018-africa-well-represented-in-world-cup http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/russia-2018-africa-well-represented-in-world-cup Russia 2018: Africa well represented in world cup

The 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament kicks off from June 14 in Russia. Africa has five representatives in this elite competition: Nigeria, Egypt, Senegal, Morocco, and Tunisia. The continent’s teams secured their spots after a long build-up involving a preliminary knock out phase followed by a four team round robin competition on home and away basis.

{loadposition myposition}

 

No African team has ever qualified for the World Cup semi-finals. Many pundits would argue that now is the time to change Africa’s World Cup story. The continent has always promised a great deal in the international showcase but delivered very little. Some of the reasons for failing to qualify for the semi-finals at the World Cup include poor preparation, internal controversies as well as technical and tactical errors at crucial moments in the knock out phases and recruiting foreign coaches at the last minute. Looking at the pedigree of the African teams, and their respective opponents, Nigeria and Senegal stand a good chance to qualify for the second round and possibly beyond. The contenders Here is a closer look at Africa’s five teams. 1. Nigeria Compared to other African teams, Nigeria has been very consistent African representatives at the World Cup since their first appearance in 1994. The Super Eagles, as they are more popularly known at home, also played in the 1998, 2002, 2010, 2014 World Cup tournaments. On the way to Russia, Nigeria eliminated Swaziland in the preliminary round and Zambia, Cameroon and Algeria in the group phase. The team has been under German coach Gernot Rohr since 2016 and prefers a 4-2-3-1 formation. Their most notable star is captain John Obi-Mikel, who previously successfully captained the under-20 and under-23 sides. The other players to watch are Victor Moses of Chelsea, Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa of Leicester as well as Alex Iwobi of Arsenal. Nigeria’s strength lies in its solid midfield play and potent attack. They face Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in the group stages. Good results against Croatia and Iceland can propel them to the second round – to which they also advanced in 1994, 1998 and 2014 – and even deeper into the tournament. 2. Egypt Egypt makes a long awaited return to the World Cup. It is intriguing that despite being a dominant force at the Africa Cup of Nations, winning a record seven times, Egypt has only featured at the World Cup three times over 84 years – in 1934, 1990 and now in 2018. The Pharaohs booked their ticket after overwhelming Chad at home and away to qualify for the group stage. Egypt overcame Congo, Ghana, and Uganda in the group stages. Hector Cuper, who coached Valencia of La Liga and Inter of Serie A, is the man tasked with leading Egypt at Russia 2018. The team relies on patient build up and opportunistic breakaways to score via their star player Mohamed Salah of Liverpool. Mo Salah, who scored a season record number of goals in the Premier League, is the man to watch. But his injury during the Champion’s League final against Real Madrid has dampened the euphoric hopes of Egyptian fans. Other star players include Mohamed Elneny of Arsenal and Ahmed Hegazi of West Bromwich Albion. Although this team looks thin on star power, their collective understanding, solid defence and team chemistry should put fear in their opponents in the group stage: Uruguay, Russia and Saudi Arabia. 3. Tunisia Tunisia makes their fifth appearance at the World Cup, having previously featured in 1978, 1998, 2002 and 2006. Coached by Nabil Maâloul, the Eagles of Carthage qualified after beating Mauritania to enter the Africa group stage where they overcame stiff resistance from Guinea, Libya and DR Congo. Unlike other African sides with one or two outstanding individual players plying their trade in the big five European Leagues, the Tunisians play in lower ranked leagues. These include Saif-Eddine Khaoui and Wahbi Khazri. Formerly at Sunderland, Khazri seems to have rediscovered his form on loan at Rennes last season, scoring nine goals in 24 league games. The team’s resourcefulness, grit and spirit will be fully stretched in their fixtures against England, Belgium and Panama. However, it will require a major upset for them to progress to the second round given their opposition’s pedigree. 4. Morocco Morocco last played in the World Cup 20 years ago and have represented Africa four times at the tournament. Their 1986 squad was the first African team to not only qualify for the second round but to do so as leaders of a pool that had England, Portugal and Poland. Coached by Hervé Renard, Morocco narrowly eliminated Equatorial Guinea in the preliminaries. But they proved their worth when they over-powered the highly-rated Gabon, Ivory Coast and Mali to earn qualification. Only six of the 23 players were born in Morocco. The rest were born in France, Spain, or the Netherlands, but have Moroccan heritage and have maintained a connection with Morocco.

Jean Baptiste Placca: RFI journalist Says Paul should make way for his succession http://cameroon-concord.com/local/jean-baptiste-placca-rfi-journalist-says-paul-should-make-way-for-his-succession http://cameroon-concord.com/local/jean-baptiste-placca-rfi-journalist-says-paul-should-make-way-for-his-succession Jean Baptiste Placca: RFI journalist Says Paul should make way for his succession

Jean Baptist Placa a journalist with RFI, after observing the happenings in Cameroon, has said the president needs to start seeking ways to organise his succession at the presidency.

{loadposition myposition}

 

The man made the statement after wondering how someone like Biya, after 36 years in power could find it difficult to chose someone among the collaborators he has been working with for a long time to take over from him.

“Paul Biya has been in power for over 36 years now, after having been prime minister for 7 years, secretary General at the presidency among other posts. Since 1962, he has been so active with the state for close to 56 years now, but it seems none of his collaborators whom he has been training is able to take over from him. I think there, Cameroon has a problem” the RFI journalist said.

According to him, Paul Biya could chose one of his collaborators to succeed him.

Placa made the observation after the utterances of the US ambassador against the Cameroonian president. He said he could not imagine Cameroonians dressed in the CPDM party wear, shouting on TV and insulting the ambassador for  saying what he had observed and thinks about Cameroon.

Normalisation committee president  in Cameroon is said to be focusing on matters that are rather meant to be handled by the FECAFOOT president, whom he is expected to produce.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Cameroon Concord has learned that, after receiving the final shortlist of names retained for the coaching duty with the National team, Dieudonne Happi has decided to hasten the pace of events, which many don’t think is his responsibility.

He was in Paris during the weekend to meet with the trainers who are vying for the team manager position with the indomitable lions.

This move of the normalisation Committee president, was not warmly received by his collaborators like the Minister of Sports and Physical Education.

According to his partners, he ought to see how soon he could organise the elections for a new FECAFOOT president, who would then take full responsibility to get a new coach for the Cameroon National Football team.

Nevertheless, a press conference is to be organised in the days ahead to look into the matter.
