Super Eagles offer support to ill Carl Ikeme

Posted September 02, 2017

The Eagles are targeting their 12th win over the Indomitable Lions.

Do you believe that Cameroon can survive against Nigeria in Uyo? All hands must, indeed, be on deck for Nigeria to not only beat Cameroon today but go all the way to the 2018 World Cup and do well. We have nothing to be afraid of. We have also been able to review our experiences in the immediate past and we have improved on it. "What Nigerians should expect from us on Friday is victory".

This first game of the double-header World Cup 2018 qualifiers with the Indomitable Lions this weekend, will determine whether Nigeria will consolidate or drop points to the Paul Biya's men.

Broos is hoping for an away draw and a home victory - results that would reduce the gap between the countries to one point. If we succeed in Nigeria, there's no reason not to succeed here.

Cameroon won the African title in Gabon early in the year - a championship for which Nigeria failed to qualify - and then tucked three big games under their belt at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation in the summer. We're even sure we're going to do it there as usual.

Indeed, the Super Eagles need to beat the Lions to consolidate their position and increase their prospect of making it to the mundial, next year.

But that was technically a draw? "A win is a win if we can get a win on Friday, it doesn't matter how we play". We came home with the cup. That's why I said that we're confident and have to prove that we deserve The AFCON title. We want to keep our mind and eyes on the match in Uyo. Algeria, who have qualified for the last two World Cups, are in Lusaka to face Zambia on Saturday. Those are the two reasons we're confident. While most people least expected the D'Tigress to shine owing to the imbroglio in NBBF, the team rose above the crisis to conquer Africa and also look poised to take on the world. You have special belief in your players?

"I hadn't played for England at any level for quite a while, and global football is something that I wanted to experience".

Nigeria plays very strongly in native walls, and in the current qualification is confidently moving forward.
