Cameroon Vs Nigeria: Super Eagles Target 34 Game Unbeaten Run In World Cup Qualifiers

Nigeria’s impressive FIFA World Cup qualification campaigns could hit 34 game unbeaten run on Monday evening if the Super Eagles avoid defeat in Yaounde in the return leg of their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers double-header against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The Eagles who beat Cameroon 4-0 at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium Uyo on Friday have not lost in 33 World Cup qualifying matches since the 1-0 away defeat to Angola in Luanda on the road to Germany 2006, Tanga Sports revealed in its latest detailed statistics-based report

The Germany 2006 World Cup, regretfully, was a tournament the Eagles failed to qualify despite two wins against Algeria (away) and Zimbabwe (home) in the later stages in which they scored five goals apiece. Angola picked their first World Cup ticket at the expense of Nigeria.

Nigeria’s first appearance at the World Cup finals was in USA ’94 after near misses of the past with the Indomitable Lions denying them the opportunity for a place at Italia 90. The Eagles only missed the Germany 2006 World Cup, and have participated in the 1998, 2002, 2010 and 2014 editions.

Road To South Africa 2010:  1st Round

This page provides the summaries of the CAF second round matches for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification and the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations. The 48 qualifiers (45 direct entrants plus 3 winners of the first round) were split into 12 groups of four in the draw held in Durban, South Africa on 25 November 2007. Teams in each group played a home-and-away round-robin in 2008, with the 12 groups winners and 8 best runners-up advancing to the third round. As not all groups were of equal size after the exclusion of Ethiopia and the withdrawal of Eritrea, when ranking the runners-up, their results against their group’s 4th placed team would not be counted.

Mozambique 0–0 Nigeria
Nigeria 3–0 Kenya
Tunisia 0–0 Nigeria
Nigeria 2–2 Tunisia
Nigeria 1–0 Mozambique
Kenya 2–3 Nigeria

Notes on the tie-breaking situation:

South Africa and Sierra Leone are ranked by their overall goal difference.
Note: South Africa were automatically qualified as hosts of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. However, they were subject to the same rules as other nations for continuation to the next stage of the qualifiers. Failure to advance from this group eliminated them from the qualifiers for the 2010 African Cup of Nations.
