National Under-20 coach Thabo Senong says Cameroon showed great character following their 3-1 victory against the young Indomitable Lions at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Monday.

Amajita had to come back from a goal down in the first half, thanks to a Luther Singh’s hat trick to secure the victory.

“We won against a very good team, as Cameroon showed tenacity in the whole 90 minutes of the match. We need to ensure that the players move game by game. We relied highly only on tactical abilities, and the players managed to stay focused throughout the match,” Senong told Safa.net

Amajita are on the summit of Group B standings with three points, while Senegal and Sudan are both on one point each after playing to a 1-1 draw, and Cameroon are yet to register any point.

The team will now face Senegal in their second group B game on Thursday at the same venue.
