NIGERIA SET TO EXTEND DOMINION OVER  ‘INDOMITABLE LIONS’

NIGERIA SET TO EXTEND DOMINION OVER ‘INDOMITABLE LIONS’

BY KUNLE SOLAJA.

After last Sunday’s misadventure with Madagascar, the Super Eagles have regained their esteem  and set to continue to dominate the ‘Indomitable Lions of Cameroon’ as both neighbouring countries clash again in the Africa Cup of Nations.

For the records, this match is the 23rd clash of both teams across all competitions and the pendulum sway greatly in Nigeria’s favour.

This is more apparent in the last five matches when Cameroon has found it difficult to prevail over Nigeria.

A win this Saturday over Cameroon further makes the Indomitable Lions toothless and clawless cubs.

But the Super Eagles will have to look beyond bare statistics and improve on their goal scoring form to overcome the usual hard fighting Cameroonians.

In three matches so far in the competition, Nigeria have scored just two late goals, which have been canceled by, the two conceded to Madagascar on Sunday.

The good thing is that the Cameroonians have equally not fared better. They have managed just two goals too, but are yet to concede.

Their Dutch coach, Clarence Seedorf has promised a revived side from the struggling one that we have seen so far.

The Indomitable Lions started off their campaign with a comfortable 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau, but back to back 0-0 draws against Ghana and Benin were far from the results they were anticipating.

    I don’t see Nigeria pull through today’s challenges with Cameroon. The blame rests squarely with the press. It kept singing the praises of a team that lack bite, cohesion and above all, a good coach. The press owed Nigerians a duty to prepare their minds about the obvious reality of an early exit. But it kept deceiving compatriots about the so-called super eagles being favourites to win the championship.
