As in their 1-0 defeat by Sheffield United at the weekend.In no uncertain terms, manager Frank admits that the Bees have struggled without Mbeumo."Of course it's a big loss. That's the way it is, and it's up to me to find solutions," stresses the tactician. With an ankle injury, it's not just his Brentford team who are suffering from his absence. Cameroon are also holding their breath.After all, Mbeumo is a player capable of creating danger at any time in the opposition box.

Race against the clock for the AFCON

Announced as absent for "a few weeks", Mbeumo nevertheless hopes to represent Cameroon at the next AFCON which kicks off on January 13 and runs until February 11. Cameroon kick off their campaign against Guinea on January 15, then take on Senegal four days later. Before their final Group C match against Gambia on January 23. Coach Rigobert Son and his staff are no doubt keeping their fingers crossed that Mbeumo will be back in the squad for the continental showdown.
