Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said that his team will show Nigerians that what happened against Madagascar on Sunday was a mistake.

The German, however, acknowledged that Cameroon are one of the top footballing sides in Africa.

Rohr said his team was happy to face the defending champions.

The Super Eagles who were the favourites to top Group B were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Madagascar in their last match.

”It is a great football match for everybody and we are happy to play the game, we are happy to qualify for the second round,” Rohr told reporters.

”Cameroon are one of the best teams at the AFCON and this could be a final but it is a round of 16 match, and we are preparing very well.

”We had the time this week to recover well to have good training sessions and also some good meetings with the players to see how the Cameroon team play.

“Now the moment has come tomorrow to show to Nigerians that the last match was an accident, it’s a very exciting game, all the players must be happy to play such a game.

”The time of playing football is so short that they have to enjoy these great matches.

”I want to see, of course, fighting spirit because now a new tournament is beginning and each match is so important. I am sure they will give all their best to make Nigerians proud.”
