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.
