Isle of Hope Academy, is gearing up for a spirited showdown in the semi finals of the cup of Cameroon against the seasoned Colombe Sportive. The elite two side is undaunted by their opponent’s storied legacy in the tournament.

During the broadcast of “La presse refait le match” on STV last Tuesday, June 11, representatives from both teams presented solid cases for the upcoming match. Isles of Hope Academy’s Vice President, Angu Lesley, shed light on their meticulous preparations:

“We are preparing very well, fully aware of Colombe’s capabilities, yet we maintain respect for all, including ourselves. We’re conscious that our place in the semi-finals wasn’t the result of chance. I anticipate a captivating semi-final and hope the superior team prevails.”

Colombe’s fan club executive highlighted their ambitions of clinching both the league and the cup. With the league title out of reach, they approach Saturday’s match with unwavering resolve to secure their spot in the finals.

“Colombe doesn’t see itself as the favorite; we’re here to compete. Our goal is the finals, and we’ll play with that singular focus,” Olivier Ondo elucidated.

ISOHSA, ousted in the round of 16 in the last edition, asserts their resilience and strategic investment in young, mentally tough players capable of overcoming adversity.

“Our focus has been on acquiring younger, more tenacious players—those who can withstand the challenges of playing with a man down for extended periods and can accept tough or unfavorable decisions.” Lesley explain

Colombe prides itself on a formidable defense that hasn’t conceded a goal throughout the competition.

“With ten goals scored and none conceded, it’s clear that our coaching strategy is effective, particularly with the additional efforts in fortifying our defense.” The member of the fan group chipped in

Reflecting on their challenging journey from the round of 32, facing teams like Unisport, Stade Renard, and Canon, the Limbe-based team acknowledges their pressure-free approach.

“We’re taking it one game at a time, relishing the present. The pressure rests with Colombe—the ‘big boys’ who are desperate to redeem their season by claiming the Cup of Cameroon. We’re ready to step onto the pitch and give it our all.” Explains ISOHSA’s vice president

Colombe, meanwhile, is intent on delivering an unparalleled experience for their supporters, having thoroughly analyzed their adversaries.

“We’ve observed Isohsa’s season, including their playdown performance. Despite its lack of renown, we recognize the vigor that comes with a youthful squad.”

Both teams have jointly appealed for improved officiating at this stage of the competition, aspiring for a fair contest on the pitch.

“We aim to deliver quality football that spectators flock to the stadium to witness. We’re optimistic about the conditions for this match, especially considering the bitter disappointments of last year,” Mr. Ondo stated.

“It promises to be a well-contested semi-final between two well-organized teams. I trust the organizers will excel on the day, allowing both sides to showcase the advancements in football over recent years under the current administration.

“Victory for either team will bring them within one match of securing their inaugural Cup of Cameroon title.
