Costa Rica 2022: Nigeria look to avoid crash against Cameroon

Feb 4, 2022

In 2019, the two teams had met for the first time in the African Games final in Morocco, where the Nigerians edged the Cameroonians to the gold on 3-2 onpenalties after a 0-0 draw.

Following a drab scoreless draw with the Baby Lionesses in Douala, Danjuma is upbeat about his side’s readiness to subdue the Central Africans.

“We know a great deal about the Cameroonian team which helped us in drawing out a plan as to what we should be expecting and how to go about it,” the tactician, who also doubles as Nasarawa Amazons head coach continued.

“One lesson we learned from the first leg match was that a game has to win during regular time by making sure all the opportunities that come our way is taken and conceding no goal and to always be in front scoring goals throughout the game.

“This is the qualifiers and the target is to be in Costa Rica for the main tournament come August this year. The goal now is that we are consumed by the desire that everything we feel and have about this tie is beating Cameroon and going to the final round.”
