Int’l Friendly: Super Eagles  Ready To  Extend  Unbeaten Streak Against Cameroon

The Super Eagles say they are determined to extend an unbeaten streak of five matches when they confront the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon at the Stadion Wiener Neustadt in the Austrian capital in an international friendly on Friday evening.

Three–time African champions Nigeria have not lost a match since they were edged by the odd goal by reigning African champions Algeria in an international friendly also in Austria in October 2020.

Since then, they have drawn 1-1 with Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles in a friendly match; drawn 4-4 and 0-0 with Sierra Leone in back-to-back 2021 AFCON qualifying matches in November 2020; defeated Benin Republic 1-0 in Porto Novo in another 2021 AFCON qualifier and; walloped Lesotho 3-0 in the finale to the 2021 AFCON qualifying race in Lagos.

Defender Anthony Izuchukwu, who plays for Sparta Trnava of Slovakia, joined up with the Nigeria camp at the Hilton Garden Inn, Wiener Neustadt Osterreich on Wednesday, moving the needle on the number of players in camp to 21.

    We should be able to win this match tomorrow by God’s grace.

    I hope oga Rohr will give the new players some minutes in today’s match to show us what they can add to the team.

    5 minutes to ten minutes is nothing.

    The gaffer should please use the right tactics and the right players at the right position.

    Good luck Super Eagles.

    This match is more than just a friendly match.

    I don’t want to hear excuses after the match. God bless Nigeria!!!

    You don’t want to hear excuses but you still want the gaffer to invite every single Nigerian player you know..

    Oga you are not a supporter of GR and will never be.

    why didnt Gernot Rohr use this opportunity to call and Cap Micheal Olise? If he could be on standby in the last qualifiers, this was the time to just cap him..
