The road to the 2018 Fifa World Cup continues and Nigeria welcome Cameroon to the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.
It is an encounter that promises to have a remarkable bearing on which country represents Africa in Russia. The Super Eagles currently lead their Central African rivals by four points with four games left.
A win for Gernot Rohr’s men would see them open up a seven a seven-point gap that would look a very healthy cushion as the qualifiers head toward its climax. On the contrary, if the Indomitable Lions were to win, they would put the pressure on their eternal rivals and would hope to complete a double in the return leg.
When both countries last met – in a friendly game played in 2015, the match finished 3-0 in favour of Nigeria at the Edmond Machtens Stadium, Brussels with Efe Ambrose, Moses Simon and Odion Ighalo on target.
WHEN AND WHERE IS THE GAME?
The African classic is scheduled to kick off at 5:00pm (West African Time) on Friday, September 1, 2017. Gates open at 11.00 am in the morning and fans would have a chance to buy their tickets which will complement activities such as the locker room experience, photo booths and a pre-match music extravaganza.
