Current Ljungskile defender Etchu Tabe says that the US Under-20 team should have an edge over Cameroon as the young Yanks try to rebound from Saturday’s lackluster defeat against Germany.

The Cameroonian-born Tabe is familiar with the African squad but maintains that the experience of the players from his adopted country should win out in the end.

“I think the US team has more experience in the U-20 World Cups and have made more appearances in the tournament with a talented group of players who have been together for a while,” Tabe recently told YA.

“They showed that in the last tournament, and they are even more mature and a cohesive group so I’d say they have an edge over Cameroon.”

Tabe was born in the city of Buea and arrived in the US at age 14. The Georgia resident went on to play college soccer for several years before hopping across the Atlantic to play for the Swedish Superettan club where he has been a mainstay since 2008.

The 23 year-old brings a hard-nosed approach to his game which would also follow the same description he gave on the US’ next opponent.

“Although [Cameroon] are very physical, talented and well-coached, they have not made the tournament in a long time, but that absence in years past might make them very hungry at this tournament,” added Tabe. “It should be an interesting game to watch if both teams show up on game day.”

The US and Cameroon square off on Tuesday at Mubarek Stadium in Suez with the Cameroonians and Germans both tied atop Group C with three points.
