The General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi has asked Nigerians to pray for the Super Eagles to come out victorious against the team against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the Round of 16 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Speaking with Daily Trust yesterday, the NFF scribe revealed that the players are physically and technically ready to battle their perennial foes tomorrow.

"Cameroon knows Nigeria and Nigeria knows Cameroon. We have met several times and for those who follow football know the outcome.

"They defeated us and we have also defeated them but football is becoming more scientific every day, such that the scientific part of it is more difficult than modern science.

"In modern science, when you do 1+1 gives you two but in football, it could be negative or positive where tactics and luck come together.

"The Super Eagles are ready for Cameroon and we want Nigerians to continue to pray so that what techniques and tactics can't do, prayer will complement it. On their own part, the players say they are physically and technically ready and sound to handle the Cameroonians," he said.

Sanusi therefore said that the federation expects the Super Eagles to come out tops as they have been given every necessary support they need to succeed.

"On the part of the NFF, we have done everything humanly possible to ensure their success and there is no problem as far as we are concerned.

"The federal government has done its own bit and we have done ours. It is now left for the players to do theirs," he said.

Super Eagles will be without their inspirational captain John Mikel Obi but his assistant, Ahmed Musa is available to rally his troops in the must win match.
