Cameroon goalkeeper, Andre Onana says he’s side are ready to take on Nigeria‘s Super Eagles in the ongoing African Cup of Nations.
The Indomitable lions and the Super Eagles will rekindle their rivalry this Saturday in Alexandria, with only a team guaranteed a place in the last eight.
Speaking ahead of the mouthwatering clash, Onana who enjoyed a very good season with Ajax Amsterdam of Holland , insists, they are ready to end their recent bad runs against their opponents.
“We have total respect for the Super Eagles. They are a good side and can improve on what they have shown so far is this competition, “Onana said at the pre-match.
“For us, it is a big motivation to face a good side like Nigeria. You don’t need extra motivation to play a big game.
“We expect a tough game. I expect them to play well as always. They are a very good team. But we are ready. We continue to the end.
“We’re ready to play any team and we have to show that we are stronger than them.”
After winning the last edition of the African Cup of Nations, Cameroon missed out of a place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup with Nigeria beating them to the sole ticket in the Group, but Onana said all that won’t be matter on the pitch in Alexandria.
“I was born ready, I’m preparing myself well and I am ready to play against them,” Onana declared.
“I am confident and relaxed and it’s what we’ve been training for.
“I’m excited. It’s getting exciting. Everyone wants to play such a match. We will see what happens.
“The loss to Nigeria in the World Cup qualifiers is all in the past and tomorrow’s game is different.”
Cameroon are unbeaten in their last nine African Cup of Nations outings , their longest streak in the tournament since going 12 matches without a loss between February 2000 – February 2004.
