Afcon 2017: Cameroon Surprised Us with Their Tactical Plan, Says Duarte

Cameroon's N'jie displays his dribbling skills during the game.

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.
