Sam Sodje: Eagles Can Exploit Slow Cameroon In World Cup Qualifiers

By Izuchukwu Okosi‎:

 

Former Nigeria international, Sam Sodje,  has pinpointed an area of weakness in the Cameroon team which the Super Eagles can exploit when both sides clash in the 2018 World Cup qualifier in August, and in the reverse fixture later, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.‎

 

The African champions lost their first game of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup 2-0 to Chile on Sunday, and Sodje spoke exclusively to Completesportsnigeria.com on what he feels the Eagles can do to outwit the Indomitable Lions..

 

"Cameroon proved that they are a very good team at the Nations Cup and now at the Confederations Cup match against Chile. We saw them play very well as well, " the former Portsmouth, Charlton Athletic and  West Brom defender told Completesportsnigeria.com on Tuesday.

 

"But there are certain weaknesses in their game that the Eagles can exploit. From the match on Sunday, I noticed that they are slow on the ball in the defence and their midfielders gave away the ball too often. Their buildup is okay,k but their final balls let them down a couple of times.

 

"I believe the Eagles coaches are taking notes. Based on these observations, it means that we (Nigeria) will need to play them with very fast and physical strikers."

 

Cameroon's next game in the Group B of the 2017 Confederations Cup is against Australia at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Thursday.
