We‘ll Face Cameroon On Level Terms – Pinnick
BY KUNLE SOLAJA.
Amaju Pinnick, analysing his entry into the executive committee of CAF and the defeat of the former president, Issa Hayatou, said one of the immediate benefits for Nigeria is that the World Cup qualifying duel of Nigeria and Cameroon later this year.
He said the encounters will now be played on level terms as match officials will not be under assumed pressure of pleasing a CAF boss while refereeing the matches.
Nigeria’s Super Eagles and Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions have back-to-back World Cup qualifying encounters later this year. The Super Eagles look as the runaway group leaders and could consolidate the leadership if they take all the maximum points in the first match which is at home.
Nigeria will host Cameroon in a Group B clash in August and immediately follow -up with the return leg a week later early in September.

This perspective gives us needless optimism. The referee will not put the ball in the net. We have to score goals, clean, indisputable goals to qualify wherever the referee comes from
