Cameroon’s preparations for the upcoming FIFA Confederations Cup took a bit of a setback after a 4-0 defeat to Colombia in their final tune-up match before Russia 2017.

James Rodriguez opened the scoring for Los Cafeteros before Yerry Mina struck a brace for the South Americans at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez in Getafe, Spain, on Tuesday. Jose Izquierdo completed the scoring late on. Cameroon were forced to play the majority of the second half with ten men after Robert Ndip Tambe was sent off.

It proved a tough outing for the reigning CAF Africa Cup of Nations holders, with coach Hugo Broos making several changes from his usual first-choice starting line-up for Tuesday’s friendly.

The Indomitable Lions will now make their way to Moscow and prepare for their opening Confederations Cup Group B match against Copa America holders Chile at the Spartak Stadium on Sunday.

In a related development, the Nigeria’s Super Eagles suffered a home defeat of 2-0 to the visiting Bafana Bafana of South African in FIFA World Cup qualifying series on Saturday June 10, 2017. (c) June 14, 2017.
