Cameroon has finally settled for a sparring partner in the upcoming FIFA  international  match day. The Ukraine of Andriy Shevchenko will host the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on June 2, 2013 in Kiev.

The match will act as preparation ahead of the return legs of the world cup qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup, against the Hawks of Togo and the Leopards of Congo in lome and Kinshasa respectively on 9 and 16 June.

The match is coming barely a couple of weeks after the lions enjoyed a rare victory over the Hawks of Togo in Yaounde (2-1). This is a new test that beckons on Samuel Eto'o and his teammates. Although it is a friendly, for the Indomitable Lions, it will be another decisive encounter. There is no doubt that Jean Paul Akono will want to continue to offer a conquering team and demonstrate their willingness to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.

The Lions’ technical bench has set out a detailed plan to start as from May 29 to  June 17, 2013 in the cities of Kiev and Cotonou. The program is pregnant with several training sessions including two friendlies against Ukraine, and another against a local collection of players in Benin on June 5 in Cotonou.

The detailed nature of the programme for once indicates the urgency in which the football authorities in Yaoundé are taking the match serious. But others have question the choice of Ukraine and Kiev as venue for the lions that are involved with african opposition.
