Speaking after their 3-3 draw with Serbia, Song said at his post-match press conference, via Complete Sports:

“We believe we can do it against Brazil. We didn’t come to the World Cup to just make up the numbers, to take part.
“We think we can still have a say in the tournament even if we know Brazil is a great team.”

Onana leaves the Cameroon camp

Meanwhile, Inter Milan goalkeeper André Onana has decided to leave the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup permanently after he was axed from Cameroon's squad to face Serbia.

Onana was billed to man the post for Cameroon in their all-important tie with Serbia but was reportedly dropped from the squad on the back of a tense meeting with head coach Rigobert Song.

According to multiple reports, the 26-year-old shot-stopper was dropped out entirely from the Cameroon squad due to disciplinary reasons.
