Credit to the 3-time Ligue 1 winner though as he took full responsibility of Cameroon's failure to qualify.
"What I think what we lacked was efficiency in front of goal. We had an enormous amount of very clear chances and we failed to put them away. We were clumsy with our finishing, but I feel that we gave everything we could tonight. We did what we could on the pitch. I have regrets after these two matches and that's understandable given the quality of the match we played tonight. Honestly, we came very close and we just didn't make it. We can have legitimate regrets but I take responsibility for everything."
