Cameroon coach Hugo Broos said he believes that players who snubbed the Africa Cup of Nations' call-up were regretting their decision after the Indomitable Lions won the continental title.
 
Eight Cameroonian international players, including Liverpool defender Joel Matip, declined call-ups before the tournament, preferring to stay with their different clubs. 
 
"There was a lot of trouble before [the Cup]; [some] players wouldn't come with us," Broos was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Monday. 
 
"OK, it's their decision. But maybe they are saying now to themselves, 'S---! Why didn't I go with them?''
 
Cameroon won their fifth African title on Sunday after defeating Egypt 2-1 in the tournament's final.
