Super Eagles backed to beat Cameroon

Former first vice president of the Nigeria Football Federation, Joseph Obinna Ogba, believes the Super Eagles will beat Cameroon in September’s Group B World Cup qualifier.

Nigeria are in a comfortable position in their group and enjoy a four point lead over the Indomitable Lions, after beating both Zambia and Algeria in their opening two matches.

However, a recent AFCON qualifying home defeat to South Africa has shaken confidence in the Eagles camp, although Ogba expressed confidence of a good display against the Cameroonians.

He told Vanguard, “There is really nothing special about Cameroon. Yes they are the African champions, yes we know they just played in the FIFA Confederations Cup, but we will surely qualify for the Russia 2018 World Cup.

“It is going to be a different thing altogether because most of our key players are ready to go, secondly the pressure is on Cameroon with just two points and thirdly, most of our players know that this is their last chance to play at the World Cup. All these factors will motivate them to win that game.”
