Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal action between Nigeria and Cameroon who will rese their rivalry at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium on Saturday.
In Group A, the Super Eagles came in second place behind Equatorial Guinea, while in Group C, Rigobert Song’s team advanced behind a flawless Senegal after a dramatic late comeback against The Gambia.
The two teams have a long-standing rivalry at the Cup of Nations, and many Super Eagles supporters still find it painful that Cameroon won the 2000 Cup of Nations final in Lagos at the start of the new millennium.
The Indomitable Lions have lost all three of their competitive encounters against the nation, including a 3-2 setback at the 2019 finals in Egypt, indicating that the 2017 champions have lost their advantage in this matchup.
After losing their last two meetings with Nigeria at the AFCONs in 2004 and 2019, Cameroon’s victory over Gambia might help the Lions on Saturday.
Here is how both teams line up
Cameroon Starting XI
Ondoa, Wooh, Gonzalez, Casteletto, Tolo, Zambo, Ntcham, Ngamaleh, Toko, Magri, Nkoudou
Nigeria Starting XI
Nwabali, Aina, Ekong, Ajayi, Bassey, Zaidu, Onyeka, Iwobi, Lookman, Simon, Osimhen
