  THE TAPESCRIPT

Everyone remembers what Cameroon did at the 1990 World Cup Final when we beat holders Argentina 1-0 in the opening game. That is still one of the biggest upsets ever. We can do that again. We are the top African nation in FIFA’s rankings. We have amazing players. We are playing in Africa. All this means we can get to the final and win – for our people and for all of Africa. No African side has ever reached the semis, but we’re gonna change that – you watch and see. We have one of the world’s greatest strikers – Samuel Eto’o, and an amazing midfield of Rigobert Song, Geremi and Kameni. The South Africa World Cup will make these players even bigger stars. The whole world will know their names.
