Cameroon’s star midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa has told reporters he will be at full throttle as usual when the indomitable Lions confront the Selecao of Brazil on Friday.
The midfielder who was at the traditional pre-match presser on Thursday afternoon laughed over worries about his input in the national team while assuring his best in Friday’s poster fixture at the Lusail Stadium.
“I will play like I always do,” Zambo began in reaction to Ben Collins Nyuyberiwo’s questions about his level of commitment.

Zambo Anguissa gave an unpleasant smile and responded; “I’ll Give the best of myself. When we come to play for our country, we do it wholeheartedly,” Zambo who has scored five goals in 47 caps for Cameroon continued.
“You cannot compare club football and football in the national team. It’s not the same teammates, not same condition and not the same tactics. I play with all my heart. If you look at the stats, maybe I make more runs in the national team than I do in the club. Sorry to say this but what you are saying is absurd. I am Zambo Anguissa. I give the best of myself. I’m not a trickster. So tomorrow I’ll do what I can do, give the best of myself and we’ll see what happens”.
Zambo came into the tournament on the back of a scintillating start of the season at SSC Napoli. Unfortunately, the ex-Cotonsport midfield metronome is yet to light up the stage at this 2022 FIFA World Cup, though his work rate so far can’t be undermined.

The former Fulham and Villarreal playmaker is expected to partner Kunde Malong of Olympiakos and Swansea’s Olivier Ntcham in midfield in the third group G game that kicks off at 10PM.
The Indomitable Lions who have just one point so far need a win, plus a favorable result between Switzerland and Serbia to make it to the last 16, which will end a 32 years absence from the business end of the competition.
