My personal interest in Cameroon goes all the way back to 7th grade, when I had to write a report on this west African country. Ever since then, I have kept up on the news on Cameroon, and that includes their world cup team, the Indomitable Lions. As this article points out, this year they are combining the famous German defensive love of precision, with the fast run and attack strategic style more commonly adopted by African teams. The combination is proving powerful.
Of course I will be rooting for the US team, but I am hoping that Brattleboro's connection to Cameroon, ( via the on going fund raiser for the farmers who grow some of the best coffee we drink here), might find some others watching and cheering this exciting team this summer. I myself will be drinking Cameroon organic ice coffee, and watching the game downtown.
