    Nice picture lovely colors. God bless Nigerians.

  • I like Cameroon and don’t want to see tears on the face of their fans at the early stage of this afcon. So, it’s good that we are at diferent side of the coin of the knockout stage. Meeting Nigeria will be at the final if they get through and the anger won’t be much by the time we beat them at the final as they will have second position to hold.

    Cameron team is not that strong, Even a simple tactic will defeat the team.

    If you look at the Cameroonian team, it has only one strong striker. and the defence is not strong with bad goalkeeper. Cameroon conceded goals in all their group matches. Even the weak Ethiopia scored them. they plaid draw with cape Verde we dealt with even with Rohr as coach few months ago.

    If Super Eagles face Cameroon team, we only need to park the only striker the way we parked Sala and our strikers will do the needful.

    Super Eagles all the way.

    God bless Nigeria.
