Former Nigeria international and Super Eagles’ Team Coordinator, Patrick Pascal, has said that the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon ousters from the ongoing FIFA Confederations Cup, without winning any match, will only spur the Super Eagles to work very hard to beat them when they will square up in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
According to him, even if Cameroon had even managed to win the Confederations Cup, the Eagles will still be very ready for them.
The former Shooting Stars attacker told AOIFootball.com exclusively that the Super Eagles have learnt their lesson against South Africa, stressing that the fact that Cameroon did not win any match should not be seen as an advantage, but as a wakeup call for Nigeria to work even harder before the game.
“Nobody will take chances now; we have learned a lot from our defeat to South Africa some weeks back, and even if Cameroon had won the Confederations Cup, I think we will still be very ready to face them.
“There is nothing to celebrate that they are out of the Confederations Cup as there is nothing that will make us feel relaxed. I think we are supposed to even work harder before playing them now.
“We have to put things in order before we play Cameroon because none of us in the backroom is happy that we lost to South Africa in our own backyard.
“Though we have the belief that if we can edge out Cameroon in the double header, we will not take anything to chance.
