Friendly: Super Eagles face Cameroon in Austria June 4

May 13, 2021 | African News, Sport News | 0 comments

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon will face everlasting foes, the Super Eagles of Nigeria, in a classic international friendly next month.

This comes after both nations opted to stay active regardless of CAF’s decision to push forward the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers from the June FIFA window to September 2021.
 
The old-age foes fold will have to fold their sleeves for another round of bare-knuckled battle when they clash in Austria next month.
 
It will be the first meeting between the West African neighbours since that nail-biting five-goal thriller in July 2019 which handed Nigeria an AFCON quarter-final berth after winning by an odd goal.
 
Both nations have met 23 times with Nigeria the most successful in their meetings as they have won 12 times and lost only four of those games, with the rest ending up in draws. 
 
The first official meeting between the two sides was back in 1960 in an international friendly that ended in a barren draw.
 
The upcoming meeting is an opportunity for coach Gernot Rohr of Nigeria and Antonio Conceição to have more details about their teams ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in September.
