Sports: Cameroon beat Nigeria in friendly after 32 yrs

By Faith Awa Maji, Katsina

The Cameroonians’ National team, Indomitable Lions of Cameroon has beaten Nigeria senior team, the Super Eagles in a friendly match played after 32 Years.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Friday, June 4 2021 night lost 1-0 to Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions, the first time the Cameroonians have defeated Nigeria in regulation time since 27 August 1989.

The winning goal came in the 37th minute when Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa fired home from the edge of the penalty box.

What was more, in eight friendly matches since the 0-0 draw with Uganda on 20 November 2018, the Super Eagles won just one – a 1-0 defeat of Egypt in Asaba on 26 March 2019.

The five-match unbeaten streak established since the 1-1 draw with Tunisia last September has come to an end.

The Super Eagles have another date with Cameroon on Tuesday at the same venue in Vienna, Austria.
