Former Barcelona and Chelsea forward Samuel Eto’o is persuaded the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations finals to be hosted by Cameroon will be a magnificent encounter.
Because of the savage pandemic coronavirus, CAF is confronted with a choice to adhere to arranged dates or move the finals to June. According to the former aggressive striker:,
“Cameroon is an extraordinary nation, it’s a football nation. The main lament I can have is that I can’t partake in this competition as a football player,” Eto’o was talking with Radio France International (RFI).
He further expressed:
“We were able to note with great joy all the efforts made by the Cameroonian government and the Cameroonian people by giving all the sportsmen and lovers of football a stadium worthy of the stadiums of Europe.”
“We have nothing to envy today in certain European countries. Today, my young brothers have these infrastructures. We will do everything to make them ready to offer us one of the most beautiful African Cup of Nations ever organised,”
“But the one that is beautiful for us will be the one that we will win. Cameroon will be ready for Afcon. Cameroon already has everything to host Afcon.”
Six arenas in five cities – Yaounde, Douala, Garoua, Bafoussam and Limbe – are set apart to be utilized for the competition, with Paul Biya Stadium being the principle setting.
The hosting of the next edition goes ahead the scenery of Cameroon being deprived of the 2019 hosting rights because of sick readiness before Egypt were given the order to host it.
Eto’o articulations is perhaps affected by the way that Cameroon was at that point getting ready to have the 2020 African Nations Championship (CHAN) that was expected to begin in April, before being uncertainly deferred by CAF.
Four venues, barring the Paul Biya Stadium, in three urban areas, will be used for CHAN.
The one month competition is booked to begin on January 9, 2021.
