IT IS A BATTLE OF EQUALS, SAYS CAMEROON GOALKEEPER, ONANA

One of the most anticipated matches in African football is a clash of Nigeria and Cameroon. The cross border rivalries of both countries have added tension to such matches.

This Saturday’s match in Alexandria, Egypt will not be an exception. According to Cameroon goalkeeper, Andre Onana, the task of both teams is herculean.

“I expect a strong game and very tough. It will be a battle of equals and we just have to show we are stronger than them.

“I was born ready for such games and I don’t fear facing anyone. We lost against them before but that’s in the past. I am confident about the present.”

He was not the goalkeeper in the last three times Nigeria prevailed over Cameroon having taken over Fabrice Ondoa. So far, he is yet to concede a goal in the competition.

But if the words of Nigerian defender, William Troost-Ekong is anything to go by, Ondoa should be ready to pick the balls from his goal net today.

“We have to give everything to stay at the tournament. The loss against Madagascar is behind us now and we are focused for this tough task.
