Indomitable Lions of Cameroon head coach Hugu Broos will next week release a list of invited players for the back-to-back 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria in early September.
Cameroonian outlet Camfoot reported that the Belgian coach will name 23 players at a press conference in Younde on Friday as Cameroun attempt to resurrect their fading World Cup qualifying campaign in which they are trailing Nigeria by four points in African Group B.
Indomitable Lions team press officer Vincent de Paul Atangana told Camfoot that Broos will have a chat with the press on August 25 after which he is expected to divulge his plans for the encounters billed for Uyo on 1 September and 4 September in Yaoundé.
The first leg, which was fixed for a week day to maximize television opportunities, will come up at 7pm Nigerian time.
The Super Eagles top African qualifying Group B with six points after two games while Cameroon are second with two points. Zambia are third on one point with Algeria bottom also on one point.
