Cameroon match agent, Prince Mabengue Leonard Junior has tipped Nigeria to edge the Africa Champions when the sides clash in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers later this year and considers it “a great sin” if the Super Eagles don’t.
According to Mabengue, Nigeria has the edge over Cameroon despite the five-time African champions participating in the FIFA Confederations Cup.
Nigeria currently top Group B of the world cup qualifier in Africa with six maximum points from two matches while Cameroon have only managed two following draws against Algeria and Zambia.
Speaking with brila.net, the FIFA match agent explained that the Indomitable Lions lack tactical depth and have consistently failed to deliver in the qualifiers.
He rates Nigeria’s chances of reaching the world at 95% and 5% for Cameroon.
‘If the Nigerian team lose against Cameroon it would have been a great sin. I don’t think Cameroon can get a win away and I also don’t see them winning at home either.
‘Nigeria have an edge right, you only need to look at how the Indomitable Lions have done in the qualifiers ans also their performance at the Confederations Cup.
I believe Nigeria has an edge over Cameroon and I’d give them a 95% chance of qualifying from the group.’
Nigeria host Cameroon on August 28 in the first leg of the qualifiers and five days later face the Central African Nation in the second leg.
