Cameroon coach for the local-based players, Rigobert Song says they are doing well as far as their 2018 CAF African Nations Championship preparations are concerned.
The Indomitable Lions legend said they are planning to stay in Egypt ahead of the tournament to ensure his players acclimatise.
The CHAN tournament is set to be staged in Morocco next year between January and February, and Song says they are waiting for the draw to start planning properly.

“We are making some preparations for that because we are thinking of whether to stay first in Egypt,” said Song.
“We have to acclimatise and to do so we have to stay in conditions like that of Morocco and play friendly matches with the opponents that we are going to face.
“But we are waiting for the draws which will enable us to know our opponents with whom we can better prepare.
“In December we will be going to either Egypt or Turkey which will enable us to better train and to acclimatise especially because the youths are not used to staying in a climate that is totally different from theirs especially as we are going to arrive there in winter.
“So we have to be in a condition whereby we will be ready when the time comes.”
