Former Super Eagles left back Ifeanyi Udeze is unhappy with how Cameroon approached their World Cup opening game against Switzerland on Thursday.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup star, questioned coach Rigobert Song’s decision to put many bodies behind the ball, when his side should have been in the front foot and exploiting the weaknesses of the Swiss.
The former West Bromwich Albion man also stressed that Choupo – Moting and Vincent Abubakar, should have started the match together.
“The Cameroonians ought to have attacked Switzerland but even with the time running out they were still defending. Perhaps they felt it was better they stopped the Swiss from scoring more goals,” Udeze said on Brila FM on Thursday.
“Cameroon came out of the second half playing from the wings, and that opened up their midfield. It affected them more. They were lucky not to have conceded more goals. I actually thought they would concede more.
“The tempo of the game would have been too much for Aboubakar so he couldn’t start but he’s an experienced player and is good enough to change games on his day,” Udeze added.
Cameroon eventually lost the tie 1-0, no thanks to goal from Yaounde born Breel Embolo early in the second half.
