‘I Will Be Cheering You To Victory’, Atiku Tells Super Eagles

Eagles Won’t Lose Sleep over Cameroon AFCON Match says Rohr

"Cameroon wherever they are, are scared of Nigeria". The last competitive match between both countries in 2004 left Nigeria with an upper hand, thanks to a sublime free kick from Jay Jay Okocha. We also respect them.it is a game that will be very interesting but in the end, victory will be ours.

Nigeria must learn from the mistakes they made against Madagascar as they head into their Africa Cup of Nations last-16 tie with reigning champions Cameroon, according to coach Gernot Rohr.

Nigeria's smooth start hit a couple of bumps in Alexandria with a loss to Madagascar and, more crucially, an injury to captain John Obi Mikel.

Ahead of Saturday's outing, Rohr disclosed that he is anticipating a strong challenge from the Indomitable Lions as they aim to bounce back from their latest setback.

Nigeria lost 2-4 on penalties to Cameroon at the National Stadium in Lagos in the final match of 2000 tournament in Lagos in which Nwankwo Kanu lost his kick while Victor Ikpeba was controversially counted as a miss after the ball had crossed the line but the referee misjudged that it was not a legal goal.


The pre-tournament hype over Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting was justified.

Goal scoring appear to be a common denominator for both teams as both teams only managed to score two goals in three matches of the group stage. We have seen the fixtures and all the games are hard for everybody, even for Egypt.

Daniel Akpeyi will return in goal, having kept clean sheets in Nigeria's opening two matches before being replaced by Ikechukwu Ezenwa. Samuel Eto'o Fils put the Indomitable Lions in front.

The Leicester City midfielder reviewed the Super Eagles performance so far in Egypt as they aim for a fourth continental title. - Cameroon are unbeaten in their last nine games in the AFCON, their joint-longest such streak in the tournament.
