By James Agberebi:

 

Nigeria's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying opponents and current African champions Indomitable Lions of Cameroon will face Colombia in an international friendly on Tuesday, 13 June in Spain, Sky Sports South America has reported.

 

The game comes up four days after Cameroon's matchday 1 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Morocco in Yaounde. 

 

The friendly will be at Getafe's Coliseum Alfonso Pérez Stadium.

 

The friendly against Colombia is part of Cameroon's preparation for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Nigeria in August.

 

This will be the fourth time Cameroon and Colombia will be facing each other.

 

In their first meeting at the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy, Cameroon triumphed 2-1 in the round  of 16 to reach Africa's first-ever quarter-finals.

 

Both teams met in the semi-final of the 2003 FIFA Confederation Cup in France which Cameroon won 1-0.

 

Colombia's only win against Cameroon was in a friendly game in 2012 which they won 3-0.

 

Despite being the hosts for the 2019 AFCON, Cameroon will take part in the qualifiers.
