Warmup to Confederation Cup: Columbia Beats Cameroon 4-0

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon yesterday suffered a four nil spanking from Columbia. The warmup test match ahead of the 2017 Confederation Cup in Russia turned out to disastrous for the current African champions. Colombians were so relaxed to the point that their centre back Yerry Mina scored twice.
James Rodriquez and Jose Izquierdo got the other goals as Colombia played a second match on Spanish soil inside a week after a 2-2 draw with Spain in Murcia last Wednesday.
Tongues are still waging as to what will happen when Cameroon will meet Copa America holders Chile in their opening game at the Confederations Cup in Moscow on Sunday.
A red card for striker Robert Ndip Tambwe three minutes into the second half when his team was already 2-0 down.
Rodriguez opened the scoring in the 16th minute, collecting the ball in the penalty area, after Juan Cuadrado’s initial effort had been blocked, and firing home from a tight angle.
Mina made it 2-0 from Rodriquez’s corner just past the half-hour mark with a powerful header.
He converted his second in the 51st minute after Giovanni Moreno squared a powerful pass from the left. Notwithstanding, soccer fans continue to seek solace on grounds that Cameroon used mostly it reserve players yet the question as to why the coach used team B players abound high among critics.
