The Eagles host Cameroon in Uyo on Friday in a key World Cup qualifier, while the Falcons defeated Cameroon in the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations final in Yaounde in December.
Completesportsnigeria.com went into the heart of the Nigerian business community in Yaounde and the Nigerian auto parts dealers had no doubts about the outcome of Friday night’s clash.
“We’ll beat Cameroon 3-0 in Uyo and 3-0 here in Yaounde,” Pascal Ikechukwu, a student of University of Yaounde who part-times at the Nigerian-dominated Mvo Ada Mobile Automobile Market that looks remarkably like the Ladipo Auto Market in Lagos in its rowdiness, told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“We’ve done it before, we’ll do it again; no difference between December when the Falcons beat Cameroon to win the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations and now. We have the boys to complete the job. You said the Cameroonians have been boasting? Let them boast. No wahala, they will cry again.”
Innocent Dennis, a young trader in the auto parts market, shower no sympathy for his hosts wanting them ‘to cry again’.
“The President’s wife cried when the Falcons won, I want to see the President himself cry this time. Cameroonians are my hosts but they’ve been boasting too much, so I want us to beat them home and away to shut them up.”
Pascal Ifeanyi is a bit less boastful but he is also backing the Super Eagles to beat Cameroon.
“There is some tension and Cameroon have a strong team, but the Eagles will win in Uyo,” the part-time student and auto parts traded told Completesportsnigeria.com.
Several other Nigerians in the market also sounded optimistic of at least a win in Uyo for the Super Eagles.
