    Cameroonian team are very good even though they couldn’t made it passed the groups staged, they are still strong and a wonderful team. If Nigeria uses the same team they used against South Africans to play this very Cameroonian squad that would mean that the Super Eagles will loose the match with so many goals. Nigeria must overall their squad before their next game. They should play their friendly games in the Africans soil with the likes of Ghana, Tunisia, Algeria and Zimbabwe.They must stop going to Europe to trained for the matches that will be played here in Africa.
