Ambroise Oyongo expects an improved performance against Ghana on Saturday

Camerounian defender Ambroise Oyongo insists they must step up their game in order to defeat the Black Stars of Ghana in the 2019 AFCON Group F game on Saturday.

Oyongo, who featured in Cameroun's first game believes his side were far from convincing despite beaten Guinea Bissau 2-0 on Tuesday and they must raise their game if they are to defeat Ghana.

"For the next match, we need to lift up our game than what we showed against Guinea-Bissau because we are playing Ghana," Oyongo told Goal Africa.

"I think we will do our best and claim all the three maximum points at stake."

Saturday's game will be the second time in 19 years that Ghana will against Cameroun in the Group stages of the AFCON. The last meeting between these two giants at the Group stage was at the 2000 tourney in Accra where the game ended 2-2.

The Black Stars need a win on Saturday to brighten their chances of making it to the last 16 after they were held 2-2 by Benin on Tuesday, while even a draw will put the Indomitable Lions in pole position in the Group.
