Cameroon coach Clarence Seedorf has spoken following the defending champions crashing out of the Africa Cup of Nations after Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Nigeria.
Recall the match saw Odion Ighalo scoring two goals during the match.
On his plans following a premature end to Cameroon’s title defence, Seedorf said;
“Maybe you want to give us a few days.
“The first thing is I’m very sorry for the boys. They have worked really hard and played well but this is football and only one can win in the end. It’s not so important in my future. The important thing is what we have built until now, we’ve improved in many aspects on and off the pitch.
“It’s a group that is very united. I hope the people at home can be proud of the fighting spirit we’ve shown. Obviously, the disappointment is really big but this is sport. This is the moment where everyone must say we are united and continue to work for the future.”

“I’ve enjoyed every minute I’ve been working with this group, being in Africa especially. And we’ll see what comes in the future,” Seedorf said.
“I feel disappointment obviously and also some anger because I thought we were a little bit tense in a few moments, but I have to appreciate the players have done everything they could today. It was not enough. I repeat that we will stay united and not throw away all the great work the team has done in the last months,” he added.
