Friendly game in Kufstein (Austria) between Cameroon and Paraguay. After this friendly, Cameroon will play in Dortmund with Germany and Paraguay will meet France in Nice, both games being played on Sunday. Eto'o and his team mates started a fight with their football federation (Fecafoot) in order to get 50% of the incomes that the federation will receive from the sponsors. If they will not be assured about their prizes, they are not going to play in Dortmund.
After a negative World Cup qualifying group phase Paraguay need to reorganize their squad and team. For this their coach Genes has decided to opt for new young players who will have their chance to gain a place in the future starting eleven. The column of the team will be Roque Santa Cruz (55/17) who seems to be his place guaranteed in the center of the attack also in the future. He played already three World Cups and missed the chance to play his fourth this year.
If I had to base our bet on statistics, then we would bet on Paraguay. The Albirroja lost only 2 friendlies in their last 16 while the Indomitable Lions have won only once in their last 9 friendlies, some days ago when they defeated Macedonia 2-0. But I will base my bet on motivations and general athletic preparation.
Although it is a friendly this match is very interesting to me. Cameroon should be in form and more prepared as Paraguay. The African team seems also to feel comfortable in Austria where they often decide to prepare their tournaments, if I well remember. Eto'o declared that Cameroon are not scared of Brazil. He sounds exaggerated but I think that this is the best way for Cameroon to prepare the World Cup, with personality and irreverence. I cant wait to see them in the World Cup.
