Cameroon coach Rigobert Song played down suggestions that his team are under unfair pressure from former star Samuel Eto'o, who predicted an all-African World Cup final between his nation and Morocco before the tournament began.
Song, whose side face Serbia in Group G on Monday, denied a rift with ex-Internazionale, Barcelona and Chelsea striker Eto'o and said the expectations set by his bold prediction were not the reason for Cameroon's 1-0 loss to Switzerland in their opener.
The Indomitable Lions have not won a World Cup group game since beating Saudi Arabia in 2002 when Eto'o, now president of the Cameroonian Football Federation, was the last player to score a winner for the country.
Third-placed Cameroon and bottom side Serbia -- who lost 2-0 to pre-tournament favourites Brazil -- will head into Monday's clash knowing that another defeat would leave them scrambling to reach the round of 16.
With Cameroon facing Brazil in their final group game, Song backed his players step up against Serbia and earn a victory.
