The players and staff of Cameroon’s U17 team that were in Algeria for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) have returned home after a disappointing competition in which they failed to register a point.
Coach Serge Mimpo and the rest of the Cameroon delegation returned home in the early hours of Thursday, May 11 via a Turkish Airlines Flight before departing to their various destinations.
Cameroon entered the tournament with high hopes, but failed to live up to expectations at the event which also served as the 2023 U17 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Fi Akamba and mates suffered a disappointing 0-2 defeat against two-time champion Mali, before sacrificing a one goal advantage in a 1-2 defeat to 2013 winner, Burkina Faso in the second and final group game.
The Indomitable Lions lost all two games at the tournament, amounting to a disappointing title defence and a second failed competition for Cameroon this year in Algeria after the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in January.
Cameroon’s ninth participation in the U-17 AFCON didn’t go as planned, the young squad that showed huge potentials but were lacking in basic aspects of the game will now shift their attention to different competitions and events in the years to come.
