Inter goalkeeper Andre Onana is still hopeful about the Cameroonian national team’s prospects at the World Cup in Qatar.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, via FCInterNews, Onana gave the view that Cameroonian’s loss to Switzerland in their group stage opener is already behind them and that they still have a chance against Brazil and Serbia.

Cameroon were very disappointed to lose 1-0 in their first group stage match at the FIFA World Cup.

The match was a fairly tight and balanced one, but a solitary goal was enough for the Swiss to prevail and give themselves an advantage as they look to reach the round of sixteen.

However, with two matches ahead of them, Cameroon can still fancy their chances, as they have six points still left to play for.

“We failed to score, and at this level when you don’t score the match gets tough,” Onana looked back at the loss to Switzerland.

“But that defeat is already behind us.”

“Our head is held high,” he continued, “difficult and important matches are on the way, first Serbia and then Brazil,” he added.

When it was pointed out that Onana had had a good first half against the Swiss, the Nerazzurri keeper replied that “Yes, because we were controlling the match, but then we fell behind.”

“And we also have to recognize the quality of the opposition.”

“Our error was not taking any of the chances we had, but I’m convinced that if we play against Serbia like we did in the first half, holding onto possession the ball, managing transitions well, and with a bit of luck we’ll have our chances.”

“It’s time for us to change course,” the Inter keeper said.

“Our goal is to progress to the round of sixteen, so we need to beat Serbia.”

“For us, the dream remains alive, intact, and attainable,” he concluded.
