Cameroon suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat to Colombia in an international friendly, but Cranes of Uganda Coach, Milutin Sredojević believes that result will not define the Africa champions when the get their FIFA Confederations Cup campaign underway this weekend.
The Indomitable Lions will play Chile in the first Group B match on Sunday at the Spartak Moscow Stadium.

Cameroon’s last appearance at the tournament remains the best by any African team. Reaching the final in 2003 against France but lost 1-0 after extra time.
Sredojević recalls the events of that edition and suggests Hugo Broos’s team can draw inspiration from those brave, Indomitable Lions.
Meanwhile, Only three other African teams have reached the last four of the competition.
Ivory Coast and Nigeria when the competition was played as the King Fahd Cup between 1992 and 1995 respectively.
After it was renamed the FIFA Confederations Cup, Cameroon have played in the final, while South Africa lost in the third place match 3-2 to Spain in 2009.
