It is rather unfortunate that the olympic squad bowed ot of the competition at this stage.Some lovers of the game of football out here were quite bitter because they were onced again deprived of their pride of those tarditional colours(Green, Red and Yellow).It is no longer news that the game of football stands out tall as a unifying factor in Cameroon, so each time a team goes out for a competition ,hopes reamin high, but when those hopes go crashing on the wall;that brings some bitterness.
Your article , i hope will be read by many for the analysis is quite good that i hope it is going to trigger off some thoughts of oevrhauling the national team.The U-23, i have also noticed are always abandoned , even those in their 20's are always neglected leading to talent rot. Well let Fecafoot or whatever sit up and those put in place to manage the national team do their homework, because it has been too long that we have been yearning for another big trophy like the Nations Cup or even an olympic Gold medal in the game of football."

Batimu,

Indeed, it is time for authorities to maintain constant follow-up on the U-23 squad. Most often it is forgotten until the next qualifiers. The coaches have to start work from scratch every time. Elsewhere in the world, federations organise matches for the U-23 or U-21 squads at the same time as the national team.

For instance, FECAFOOT could arrange that every time the senior lions are playing against an opponent, the U-21 or U-23 play a day ahead or after with that same opponent.

My view is that CAF could even make that a rule as the UEFA does with its under-age competitions. That should build African teams and prepare their players for senior level competitions.
