Cameroon Coach Dismisses Algeria’s Weak Defence Ahead Of Nigeria Clash

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos has given the Super Eagles confidence ahead of their clash with the Fennecs of Algeria in next month's 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uyo, reports


Broos who led his side to a 1-1 draw away to Algeria in Bilda last Sunday hinted that Algeria are not strong at the back.


Nigeria's attack of Moses Simon, Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho and Odion Ighalo would look to exploit these weaknesses playing in front of their home crowd. 


"Frankly, I expected more from an Algerian team showed a lot of weaknesses on the defensive.


"We created dangerous situations that could have been profitable if we had been more accurate. We must also recognize that the Algerian team rushed us early in the game, " Broos told


Dinamo Zagreb forward, Hilal Soudani, gave Algeria the lead in the seventh minute but his goal was cancelled out by Benjamin Moukandjo.


The Belgian coach however rued his side's inability to snatch a late winner to tie Nigeria at the top of the group. 


Nigeria currently lead Group B with three points while Algeria and Cameroun are second and third respectively. Zambia are rock bottom after losing their opening game to Nigeria


  • What is he saying. Cameroon were just too fortunate to have a draw. Algeria would have scored up to 6 goals if not for the Cameroon goalkeeper. The Algerians were good in all departments. No matter what defence displayed, if the attackers could not score, all efforts will be zero. We will see if Cameroon can beat Algeria at their home.
