Super Eagles will qualify for Russian Federation 2018 ―Dalung

Hugo Broos, say the Indomitable Lions, having played at the Confederation Cup in Russian Federation, is more experienced than the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The coach said that the Indomitable Lions, apart from being African champions, had played against hard national teams of Chile, Germany, and Australia in the Confederation cup.

It is less than 24 hours to the crunch battle in Uyo between Nigeria and Cameroon and the gladiators say they are ready for war.

The development means that Ezenwa will finally get his big break with the Super Eagles as after a long wait for the opportunity.

The Ccameroonian team captain, Benjamin Moukandjo, said that the team was focused and had prepared hard for the match.

In 19 previous encounters, Nigeria won 11 times, with Cameroun winning four times and four matches drawn.

He said "German machine" Leon Balogun has returned to add aggression to the heart of the back four after injury kept him out in June, while "natural leader" skipper Mikel Obi and "our best striker" Victor Moses are also back in the fold.

"Cameroon have a good team but we also have a good team".

The Group B rivals meet in Uyo on Friday and then in Cameroon's capital Yaounde three days later.

"We want to go the world Cup. We want to win the first half so that the second half will be easy for us".

One of the good news from the Eagles' camp is the likelihood that Chelsea defender, Ola Aina will make his debut for Nigeria tomorrow.

"Remember we still have games to play against Nigeria away and Cameroon at home after the Algeria double-header, so anything can still happen".

It will be a Titanic showdown with a World Cup ticket riding on it.
