It’s time for a great friendly match in Africa tonight!
Since the qualification process for the African Cup of Nations was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, tonight will be a good opportunity for Nigeria and Cameroon to face each other in order to get back on track with their football form.
Nigeria is the leader of Group L with 14 points. Out of 6 games they managed to win 4 matches, followed by 2 draws.
So if they continue performing as they do, the Super Eagles will be in pole position to enter the next ACN tournament in 2022.
Gernot Rohr has a great combination of young and experienced football players with international experience, so he can easily try different styles and tactics in order to find the right approach on the pitch. So tonight will be a very good chance for some tactical experiments in order to get his squad in good playing condition and raise their winning spirits against their neighbor Cameroon.
Cameroon will be the next African Cup of Nations host, so this means that they have extra motivation to bring the best they possibly can for the big sports event in January and February 2022. If Cameroon wants to improve some aspects of their football abilities they have a great sparring partner tonight, the national team of Nigeria. So this friendly match must be a great opportunity to test some tactics and rotations of the squad. Toni Conceição’s team has a great fighting spirit, and very athletic and skilled players, so if he manages to find the right flow in their game, they will definitely be a very difficult football opponent to everyone that is going to them.
