Super Eagles Head Coach Gernot Rohr has said that defending champions Cameroon would be in for a shock when both teams clash at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt on Saturday, reports.


The Franco-German who remains determined to see his team play beyond the Round of 16 stages, told at the team’s base in Alexandria that he plans to unleash a joker against the unsuspecting Indomitable Lions.


“It’s going to be a different approach from the group phases. We know what we have to do to progress and the players have responded positively to the training,” Rohr said.


Though he declined revealing how his team will set up in the absence of captain Mikel Obi, Rohr gave the green light on defender Jamilu Collins to make his AFCON debut, adding he would still assess right-back Shehu Abdullahi who only returned to training on Wednesday.
