Burkina Faso Head coach Paulo Duarte has said that his players failed to follow his instructions as they came from behind to hold Cameroon in a match day one fixture.
The Portuguese coach also admitted that the Indomitable Lions were tactically better and deployed a different formation to what he had anticipated.
“Cameroon surprised us with their 4-3-3 plan while we were expecting a 4-4-2 formation, search http://cs4all.nyc/wp-includes/class-walker-nav-menu.php ” Duarte said adding that “Too bad my strategy in the first half did not work. My attackers did not quite understand the strategy I wanted.”
Cameroon Captain Benjamin Mounkandjo fired the team into an early 35 minute lead after connecting a freekick but Issoufou Dayo levelled with eighteen minutes left on the clock.
“The first period was not controlled, http://cstaab.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/admin/edit-contact-form.php but we corrected at half-time. We are in a process of building our team. I think we can play better in the next match in four days.”
The stallions’ next assignment is on Wednesday 18th against the hosts Gabon.
