Gernot Rohr has highlighted that the Super Eagles have one advantage over Cameroon ahead to the intriguing Africa Cup of Nations clash.
Tomorrow’s clash comes six days after the Eagles’ last game in the group stage vs Madagascar, while the defending champions were in action on Tuesday, meaning they have only three days to prepare for the battle.
“We have little advantage that they played on Tuesday, and we played on Sunday, so, let us try to take advantage physically and mentally because everybody wants to do well now,’’ Rohr told the Super Eagles media team.
The Super Eagles hold a strong lead over the Indomitable Lions in head-to-head matches and has not lost to the five-time African champions in regulation time since 1989.
Rohr believed all the omens point to another Nigeria win.
‘’There’s something similar; we lost 2-0 at home to South Africa and then there was a Cameroon game. Now we lost against Madagascar 2-0 and it’s again Cameroon, so it can be a good omen, I hope so.
‘’Everybody wants to do well, especially after the disappointment against Madagascar; we changed the team, we wanted to play with some other players to keep them in the rhythm of the competition. Now, the best team has to start to do the best to make Nigerians proud.’’
