Super Eagles held to a draw by Cameroon in pre CHAN friendly 

Cameroon held Nigeria to a 0-0 draw in a friendly match in

Rabat on Wednesday night.

The game took place at the Moulay El Hassan Stadium.

The CHAN Eagles certainly had enough possession, but

failed to create any clear cut chances in front of goal.

The 2014 African Nations Championship Bronze Medallists

were out of sorts as the several chances the CHAN Eagles

had were fluffed with Gabriel Okechukwu the chief culprit.

The Eagles played with no urgency in their play as they

approached the game as an ordinary match.

Nigeria started the second half on the front foot but that

desire was at no point translated into chances.

And sensing danger coach Yusuf Salisu threw on Ibrahim

Mustapha, Emeka Ogbuh and Sunday Faleye .

Still with three strikers on it was Faleye who had the most

impact, driving the team forward with Ogbuh and getting

stuck deep into tackles.

Ultimately it didn’t make much of a difference. The Eagles

will open their 2018 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN)

campaign on Monday 15th January against Rwanda.
