In the last friendly, Nigeria failed to get the better of Cameroon as they lost the clash 1-0. The sole goal was scored by André-Frank Zambo Anguissa in the 37th minute of the match.
The Cameroonian star’s right footed shot from the centre of the box was enough to get the side home.
Nonetheless, the ongoing international friendlies are very vital for both teams who will be looking to finalise their tactis and squad before the Africa Cup of Nations resumes after six months.
This will help both Cameroon and Nigeria secure final touches to their preparations for the star-studded tournament.
Nigeria are likely to make a strong comeback owing to the greater strength-in-depth. They will play to their strength to outplay Cameroon in the second encounter. Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho are expected to start for Nigeria.
