World Cup Qualifier: Nigeria must take maximum point against Cameroon – Kanu Nwankwo

By Ibiyemi Mathew

Former Super Eagles International, Nwankwo Kanu has stated that Nigeria must do incredibly well against the indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

He said, Eagles need to take the maximum point to try to secure a qualification place for next year’s World Cup.

The Gernot Rohr boys top Group B with 6 points, knowing that a victory against the Cameroonian side would enhance their chances of obtaining a ticket to Russia.

The three times nation cup winners were defeated by the Bafana Bafana boys in last month’s Nations Cup qualifier in Uyo, but the Arsenal legend maintained that the team needs to do all it takes to get the three points.

”It was not a good result [against South Africa], it is a sad one if you are Nigerian,’’ Kanu told the media.

”If you were in my shoes, you will know that it was a hurting result. All the same, it is a very big wake-up call not only for the players, but for everybody.

”The match against Cameroon is a very crucial one and right now, I believe that we have learnt from our mistakes and we need to work on them.

“Everybody have to come out and support them, the players have to do what they have to do because we need the result.

“[Super Eagles] should know that Cameroon are not pushovers knowing that they won the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. So we need to do extra to make sure that we get something from it.”
