Can Eagles now beat Cameroon when it matters most?

After playing his part in Hull City's win against Bolton, the on-loan right-back flew out to join up with the Super Eagles ahead of a back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon. The final two qualifiers will be played in October and November with only the five group winners progressing to play in Russian Federation.

He assured that the team which takes on the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in a double header within the next few days, was in high spirits.

The development means that Ezenwa will finally get his big break with the Super Eagles as after a long wait for the opportunity. We have injured players coming back.

"They have always given us problems beating them", he admitted.

He added: "The players know what it means" to face Cameroun in the World Cup qualifier.

South Africa -based goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, who was in goal in the November 2016 3-1 win over Algeria at the same venue, has finally been ruled out of action on Friday as a result of injury. "We want to win the first half so that the second half will be easy for us".

The court sentenced two former senior policemen to 17 years each in prison and acquitted five others in the case. The court ruled that Musharraf "absconded", a court official said, and ordered the confiscation of his property.

Said is in the squad, and so is 44-year-old goalkeeper Essam El Hadary, as Egypt seek a win after losing the 2017 Nations Cup final to Cameroon and a 2019 qualifier in Tunisia. We'll be building up throughout the day before giving you a minute-by-minute account of the game as it unfolds.

Arsenal young forward Alex Iwobi will miss this encounter following a thigh strain he suffered in training with his London club.

"This boy (Ezenwa) who plays in Nigeria will now start the game", Rohr said.

Nigeria will also be hoping they get a last-minute approval from Federation Internationale de Football Association for Ola Aina to make his debut at problematic right fullback position, otherwise Rohr will stick with the core of the players he has worked with since he took charge in July 2016.

"I know tomorrow's game is important".

It will be a Titanic showdown with a World Cup ticket riding on it.
