Coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Hugo Broos says his team have put themselves in the best possible shape to beat Nigeria when the World Cup 2018 qualifiers resume.
A delighted Broos told the Cameroonian media shortly after lifting the Africa Cup of Nations title, that the focus will shift to the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria.
Nigeria are currently leading their group with Cameroon sitting four points behind in second place, but Brooks believes it will be a different ball game when they take on Nigeria in back to back World Cup qualifiers in August.
“You have to allow us enjoy this remarkable victory before focusing on other tasks ahead. We won the trophy in style beating teams like Senegal, Ghana and Egypt in the final”, he said.
“Considering the pedigree of the teams I mentioned earlier are either better or same as Nigeria, it’s normal that if we can beat them in a tense situation like at the Cup of Nations, we should also be confident against Nigeria”.
