2018 World Cup Qualifiers: Super Eagles Look To Extend Unbeaten Run In WCQs

On Monday, the Super Eagles of Nigeria will take on the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in Yaounde as the Eagles look to book a spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Nigeria, who sit at the top of Group with a seven-point lead, could cement their place at the biggest sporting event with a win in the Cameroonian capital.

It would be the fourth game of the Qualifying Series and a repeat of the fixture that took place two days ago at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium- a game which the Super Eagles convincingly beat the Cameroonians 4-0.

The two sides have clashed in 21 matches including competitive and friendly games. Nigeria won 11, while Cameroon got four wins. Six of the 21 past encounters ended in draw

The Super Eagles would be looking to extend their unbeaten run in the World Cup Qualifying series to 34 matches, a feat that is only bettered by former World Cup winners Spain.

The last time Nigeria lost in the World Cup qualifiers was to Angola in a 1-0 away defeat at Luanda.

It is expected that Gernot Rohr would keep the same starting lineup that got the job done in Uyo while Hugo Broos is expected to make changes in bid to get a result as the insecurity on his job increases.

Venue: Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo, Yaoundé
Referees: Papa Bakary Gassama (Gambian, Main official)
                Jean Claude Birumushahu (Burundian, Assistant Referee 1)
                Aden Marwa Range (Kenyan, Assistant Referee 2)
                Maudo Jallo (Gambian, Fourth Official)
Time:    6 p.m
