Cameroon vs Nigeria: Match preview
Cameroon will be coming into this match as a confident unit after they managed to edge past the Nigerian team with a 1-0 win on Friday. Fulham’s Zambo Anguissa scored the only goal of the match and that was enough to get the win for the Cameronian side. Antonio Conceicao’s men did not have a great run prior to the game on Friday and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. A victory against Nigeria would be a big boost for them, as this would be the perfect way to start preparing for the long competitive season of international football ahead.
Nigeria are a great team and they have some great names on their national side, but the squad has a lot of injury problems coming into the game against Cameroon. After losing out to their rivals on Friday, Nigeria would be hoping that players like Alex Iwobi and Wilfred Ndidi step up and help the Nigerians get past Cameroon. Before the loss on Friday, Nigeria were unbeaten in their last 5 games and they will be looking to get the better of their African rivals this time.
