Nigeria vs Cameroon prediction

Nigeria vs Cameroon team news

Nigeria

Three-time AFCON champions Nigeria are one of the favourites to win the AFCON. They finished second in Group A with seven points from a possible nine.

José Peseiro's men will set their sights on a quarter-final spot as they square off against one of their biggest rivals.

Predicted lineup: Nwabali, Ajayi, Omeruo, Bassey, Aina, Aribo, Onyeka, Samuel, Simon, Chukwueze, Osimhen.

Cameroon

On the other hand, advanced to the knockout stages on the last day, after a dramatic five-goal thriller against Gambia. The Indomitable Lions have not been as good as advertised, as they amassed just four points from their first two games.

It'll be interesting to see how Cameroon will match-up against Nigeria. AFCON 2021 top scorer Vincent Aboubakar has recovered from a hamstring injury, and will be available for selection.

Predicted lineup: Ondoa, Tolo, Wooh, Castelletto, Yongwa, Anguissa, Ntcham, Mbiayi, N'Koudou,Magri, Ekambi.

*Confirmed Nigeria vs Cameroon lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to watch: Victor Osimhen

Victor Osimhen was the top scorer in the qualifying rounds of this tournament with 10 goals. The Napoli forward scored twice as many goals as every other player in the AFCON qualifiers.

However, the 25-year-old has not been impressive at this tournament, scoring just once in three matches. It'll be interesting to see if Osimhen will score for Nigeria.
