Watch Nigeria vs Cameroon Live Match and Goal Highlights
Welcome to this international friendly game between two African soccer giants. They will face off in the first of two friendlies on Friday, looking to continue preparations for their World Cup qualifiers which begin in September.
Nigeria have had the upper hand over old foes Cameroon in recent competitive meetings. Their last encounter ended 3-2 to the Super Eagles at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt. Gernot Rohr remains unbeaten against the Indomitable Lions and he’ll want to preserve his unbeaten run against the Central African nation.
This cannot be emphasised enough. Nigeria have 20 players in their squad, while Cameroon expect 26 in camp. Three of the Super Eagles in the squad are goalkeepers, leaving Gernot Rohr with only six outfield players on the bench for Friday night. This essentially means the West African nation won’t have a wealth of options to choose from, thus limiting the wiggle room to impact the game. Several key players had to withdraw from the three-time African champions’ squad and their absences will be felt when the teams face off on Friday.
