AFCON 2023: We Respect Osimhen But Don’t Fear Him —Song

Indomitable Lions of Cameroon head coach Rigobert Song has said Victor Osimhen is a player they respect but are not afraid of.

Song’s Indomitable Lions will come up against old foes, the Super Eagles, in the round of 16 of the AFCON in Abidjan on Saturday.

One player the Cameroonians would be keeping a close tab on is Osimhen.

The reigning CAF Player of the Year has only managed one goal in three games which was against Equatorial Guinea.

Despite not setting the AFCON 2023 alight yet, Osimhen is one player the Cameroonians would be wary of because of the threat he carries.

But Song would be out of place to be scared of Osimhen.

“Osimhen is a big player,” Song was quoted on

“We know him and respect him. But respecting him doesn’t mean that we should fear him.”

The two-time AFCON winner explained what his players must do to get the better of their rival.

“We are focused to play and avoid engaging in emotions. We must apply our philosophy and technique to win … We cannot be worried about a football game.

“We will approach this match with confidence and the outcome we want will come.”
