More security for Lions



Cameroon football officials have insisted on increased security for Indomitable Lions in future encounters. The decision comes after the post match trouble after the national team’s 2013 qualifying match in Guinea Bissau.

A stock taking meeting of the Cameroon national team recently in Yaounde gave officials the opportunity to revisit the issue. The meeting was to put in place a programme of action for the team that has hitherto operated haphazardly.

Sports and Physical Education Minister, Adoum Garoua presided at the assembly which had the technical staff of the team, members of the Cameroon Football Federation and other soccer stakeholders. Minister Garoua who personally lived the Bissau incidence recommended that security should be reinforced around the squad.

The issue of security for the team has not been a subject for consideration due to the fact that the Lions have often been accorded warm treatment in matches out of the country.

Meanwhile, the team officials have drawn a plan of action ahead of the Lions upcoming qualifying games. The team will camp in France and then would play a friendly against Guinea Conakry before confronting DR Congo on June2.

After much criticism of the new coach, he seems to have been given the upper hand to lead the squad to South Africa. After securing a 1-0 defeat against Guinea Bissau in the preliminary round of the qualifiers, the Lions seem poised to take on its adversaries and make it to 2013.
