Ahead of their last game at the national Interpools tournament for the ascension into League Two, Stade De Bertoua’s midfielder, Akum Yanic says they are set for the game.
Speaking to The Post, Akum says the game is a “must-win” for them if they are to keep their League two dreams alive.
“The game has to be a must-win game for us if we want to keep our League two dreams alive. With a victory in this game, we are at least 80 per cent to be confident of qualification,” Akum said.
To him, since the game against PWD Kumba will be the last one for Stade De Bertoua and the first for PWD Kumba, the midfielder believes they are mentally and physically fit for the encounter.
He said: “Physically, we are fine, mentally and spiritually we are well prepared even though we know the game is going to be a very tough one.”
“So far, I have been trying to educate my teammates on the Anglo-Saxon style of football, which is what PWD of Kumba are using. With this, I am confident that by the end of the game we shall be victorious even though it hurts me doing so, but it is part of the game of football.”
Stade de Bertoua will on Wednesday, August 28, face Southwest representative PWD Kumba in what many football pundits have coined a “do or die” match for home side Stade de Bertoua.
Stade de Bertoua pulled a 1-1 tie in their first game at the ongoing National Interpools tournament against Kohi de Maroua.
