Rigobert hailed the “fighting spirit” demonstrated by Cameroon players following their entertaining 2-2 draw in this Saturday’s international friendly with Mexico.
The Indomitable Lions head coach has come under pressure recently following a difficult spell of form that culminated in a group stage exit at the 2022 FIFA World Cup after a difficult spell in the 2026 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
Indeed, Cameroon is now on a run of three wins in as many games under Song, but they showed brilliant character against Mexico this Sunday morning though sacrificing the lead twice in a game Bryan Mbeumo and Toko Ekambi scored.
Song is confident the sticky patch will benefit his players as they prepare to face Burundi after this FIFA window.
“What I retain today is the fighting spirit of my players. I want to congratulate all of them for what they have shown today. It was a difficult game, but I like their fighting spirit,” Song said post-match.
Meanwhile, bookmakers insisted there were plenty of positives for the team to build on heading into their next game.
Brentford forward marked his tenth appearance for his country with his first goal while Karl Toko made 15 goals 58 appearances for the five-time Champions of Africa.
Kevin Gonzalez denied Cameroon victory by scoring in added time in the second segment like Israel Reyes in the first half.
