2021 AFCON: Cameroon Fans Want Super Eagles, Indomitable Lions Final

Football fans in Cameroon are looking forward to facing perennial rivals, the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the final game of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, reports Completesports.com.

The Indomitable Lions and the Super Eagles are two of Africa’s biggest football teams and are among the favourites to win the competition.


Cameroon won the title when Nigeria co-hosted the competition with Ghana in 2020 edging out the Super Eagles 4-3 on penalties in the final.

The Super Eagles have won the last two competitive meetings between both teams, beating the Indomitable Lions at the quarter-final stage in Tunisia 2004 and second round at the last edition in Egypt.

“I want Cameroon to play Nigeria, the Super Eagles in the final. It will be an interesting game. The Super Eagles beat us in 2019 and it was painful. It will be great get to get revenge this time around,” a female football fan Sandra Boris told Completesports.com.

“I know there are other strong teams in the competition. Algeria with Riyad Mahrez, Senegal, Ivory Coast and Egypt, but it will be good to beat Nigeria in the final.

Another fan Daniel Juinor shared her sentiment: Personally, I don’t like the Super Eagles, I love it when we beat them in the final in 1984, 1988 and 2000. They have a good record against us recently and I can’t wait for the Indomitable Lions to make tneir fans cry.”

For Patrick Frederic, a Cameroon verus Nigeria final will be a befitting end to the competition.

“The tournament is just starting, but in my head I want a Nigeria versus Cameroon final. It will be tough for us but we have the quality to beat them,”Frederic stated.

“Don’t forget we are playing at home too. We will everything we can in terms of support to help our team win the trophy.”

    *Nigeria and Ghana co-hosted the competition in 2000* and not 2020 CSN.

      I laugh and laugh and laugh at these Cameroonian fans . They think they won Super Eagles in the finals by their own handy work whereas we all know that Hayatou manipulated every win for his country . They say they want revenge . Such a joke . When we won them in quarter finals we never thought of revenge , we thought of going through that’s the difference between us and them . Whether they like Super Eagles or not is not a bother . Football is a game and not a fanatical nonsense .
      To get to the final is still a tall dream for the super eagles but as they start each match , let them go with the positive Energy to scale through
      I wish them the best

    Ngr vs Cmr rivalry is the biggest rivalry in Africa football. Maybe Egypt vs Algeria too

  • Highstar 2 weeks ago

    It will end in tears for Cameroon fans

    This cameroonians doesn’t know that isa hayatou is no longer caf president. All those dubious win might come back to bite them. They should be careful what they wish for.

    That is if Cameroon manage to make it to the final, which is unlikely.

    • Omo9ja 2 weeks ago

      You are seeing what I’m seeing @Pompei. I don’t think Cameroon can go far in this tournament.

      However, we haven’t heard anything about Jamilu Collins. No update about Ighalo. So, NFF wasted two slots because of corruption.

      Instead to put Bassey and Dessers on standby should be in case Ighalo and Collins might not come but NFF wasted the two slots because of their selfishness.

      My friend Pompei, your thoughts on this. God bless Nigeria!!!

      • pompei 2 weeks ago

        This Cameroon team is an average side capable of getting results, but often struggle against quality opponents. It will be a surprise for me if they make it to the final.
        Me I don taya for NFF ONIGBESE matter.
        I refuse to spoil my weekend by talking about them.
        Wish we had Dessers, Amoo and Bassey. But the squad on ground is capable. From the training sessions and friendlies, it’s obvious that we have at least one good sub for each position. That’s what you need to go far in a tournament. With the rub of the green, good tactics, and hard work from the players, our own may just come back with the trophy. Let’s hope we will soon be congratulating Eguavoen on becoming the 2nd Nigerian coach to win the Afcon.

        • I don’t underate both countries pedigree in football but it’s tall dreams for Cameroon and Nigeria to reach 2022 AFCON final going by their present levels. Pertinently,both countries can not reach final. They are below Algeria,Senegal and probably Egypt standard

          • pompei 2 weeks ago

            Yes, our chances of success at the Afcon are slim. But we still have a chance. It’s not a mission impossible.
            Recall the 2013 semi final against Ivory Coast. Very few gave Nigeria a chance against Drogba and company. Yet, look what happened!
            So, we may not be up to par, compared to Algeria and the other big boys. However, this is football. It’s a funny old game.

  • Cameroon that struggled with and only won by 2 penalties against Burkinafaso?!
    Cameroonians are joker’s please! Lols!

    • Rule out Cameroon at your risk. Cameroon is always known for being tough tackles and pace. Even the best of Super Eagles struggle against them. Their finishing will improve as the tournament goes on. But to say that this Cameroonian team won’t go far, na you know.

      • pompei 2 weeks ago

        The SE have really struggled against Cameroon recently.
        An Oliseh-led SE “struggled” to spank them 3 nil. Under Rohr, we “struggled” to demolish them 4 nil at Uyo. They should have also been defeated in the return leg in Cameroon. A dubious penalty bailed them out. Then we “struggled” again to beat them 3-2 at the Afcon.
        Let’s hope we continue to “struggle” against them in similar fashion 🙂

  • Ndubest 2 weeks ago

    This is the first game with the possibility of playing better in subsequent games but based on what we’ve seen in the first game they are not fantastic side and with little discipline bukinafaso would have beaten them. A stronger side in the knock out stage will dumb them out of the tournament. As for Nigeria we are not sure what to expect until they take Egypt. We may just click and surprise all. Let the game start.

    • Cameroun are known to win games or spring surprises in Africa without being fantastic. They got to finals of 2000 nations cup with no one giving them chance considering that they were no where to be found in 1994, 1996 and 1998. They won in 2017 without being fantastic. They know how to win in Africa bro. It is only in world cup they get punished most times with big margins with their style of play.

  • Oh goodness! there is nothing extra ordinary about the Egyptian team ooh. With or without Salah, their glorious days are long gone abeg, with a little effort, that team will be dispatched by SE. I fear Guinea pass that team , I mean Keita’s Guinea ooh, not Guinea Bissau.

    I will keep on saying it, Nigeria will win this AFCON by beating cameroun enrout to the cup.It does not matter who the coach is or the players, is our time to win it, and it shall be in Cameroun.

    • Regista 2 weeks ago

      What makes you so sure, bro? At best, you are just guessing. We all are. Based on my observations of the current super eagles, they don’t appear to have what it takes to lift the cup. I don’t see them going past the quarter finals.

      • DannySE 2 weeks ago

        You have already observed? Where? How? At best, you are being pessimistic. We can’t say yet until we watch their first match. How they play (irrespective of result) is the only reliable data to observe…

  • Israel 2 weeks ago

    It’s an entirely useless ideas for the cameronian fans to think their men national team will defeat Nigerian super eagles if paraveture the two nations meet.
