Cameroon Coach Hugo Broos admits the chances of his side qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers are all but over.
The African champions miserably lost 4-0 to giants Nigeria on Friday in Uyo to leave them just on two points after three games.
Ahead of the two side’s meeting on Monday in Yaoundé, Broos says his side are now relaxed and under no pressure.
“There is no pressure anymore on Monday, Nigeria have nine points, we have two points,” Broos said.
We need to win all three games and Nigeria have to lose all three games, I don’t think that will happen
Nevertheless, he says they will play for pride against the Super Eagles and aim for maximum points.
But there is only an honour to defend; there is no importance to this. I just hope my players will have the same mentality that I have – that they will fight on Monday till the last minute – to beat Nigeria.
If we had won this game, we would have a chance, but we lost it and I hope everyone will learn from this.”
The Indomitable Lions have played at seven Fifa World Cups and their best outing was at the 1990 World Cup where they reached the quarterfinals.
