Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has come out to state that the Gernot Rohr-led side are not worried and not afraid of their opponents.
Nigeria will battle Cameroun in the round of 16 after the Cameroonians drew 0-0 with Benin in yesterday in Egypt, thus setting up a very gigantic and epic clash with Nigeria.
Speaking with www.brila.net, Ndidi also added that they (Cameroun) being the current champions of the AFCON does not move present any threat to any Eagles player as the objective remains to win the match and progress.
“We not worried about any team, we just have to go on the pitch and do what we have to do”.
“For us, them being the current champions, we really do not care and I don’t think we are scared of them. Our objective is to win the match”.
Cameroon defeated Nigeria in the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in 1984, 1988 and 2000, but most painful for the Super Eagles was that agonizing penalty shoot-out loss in front of home fans at the National Stadium, Lagos on 13th February 2000.
