DIRECT CAN 2024 Nigeria Cameroon The Super Eagles take advantage

DIRECT. CAN 2024, Nigeria Cameroon: The Super Eagles take advantage of a big mistake to open the score RMC Sport

6 minutes added time

There are only six minutes left of this first act. Nigeria is at the top thanks to Ademola Lookman.

Nkoudou misses his free kick

The best Cameroonian passer of this CAN 2024 is not having the usual success. His free kick is far too long.

Ondoa comes out

The Indomitable Lions goalkeeper didn't hesitate to come out of his penalty area and clear with a header while Simon was alarmed in depth.

It's getting hot!

Tolo and Onyeka warm up after a big duel. The referee must intervene and calm both players. There was great intensity from the start of the game.

Magri's beautiful sequence

The Toulouse man controls his chest, turns and strikes, but his attempt is well countered by Troost-Ekong.

What a mistake! Lookman takes advantage

Osimhen wins the ball back on the edge of the opponent's penalty area after a serious mistake by Gonzalez. The Neapolitan then finds Lookman, who ultimately succeeds.

Simon left too soon

The Nantes resident becomes impatient and calls a little too quickly. He is shown in an offside position.

A refreshing break

The referee gives both teams a cool break. No goal after half an hour but a warning for the Indomitable Lions with Ajayi's disallowed goal early in the game.

Aina tries a grand gesture

The Nigerian full-back impressed with a shot with the scarf to open the game. His gesture ultimately found no takers, but the initiative was great.

Tolo complains

The Cameroonian's left butt attacked Ajayi as he felt the Super Eagles defender had suffered another elbow strike. The referee does not intervene.

Nwabali takes the leather

Magri tries to continue after a good serve from Nkoudou, but the Toulouse player cannot get into a striking position. His cross ended up in the gloves of the Nigerian goalkeeper.

Onyeka doesn't fall into feints

Karl Toko-Ekambi tries to eliminate Frank Onyeka, but the Nigerian midfielder defends very well and ends up taking the ball. The Super Eagles' counterattack then has no effect.

Magri's volley goes wide

Ngamaleu offers a lot in his lane and manages to find Magri in the middle, but he recovers from his shin.

Ngamaleu has no control

After a long cross from Ntcham, Ngamaleu fails to control the ball. Nwabali can restart his camp.

Ajayi sets the elbow

The Nigerian defender puts his elbow on Magri's head, but the Toulouse attacker is not given a foul.

The target is canceled

The Indomitable Lions can breathe! Victor Osimhen was offside and the goal is therefore cancelled.

Nigeria opens the score!

The Super Eagles already break the deadlock with a direct shot from Ajayi! The Cameroonian goalkeeper is not exempt from all allegations.

Osimhen wins with his head

The former Lille player uses the opponent's penalty area after contact with the ball from Ola Aina, but the Cameroon goalkeeper grabs the ball.

Raymond Domenech in the stands

It's a familiar face! The former coach of the French national team sat in the stands of the Félix Houphouët Boigny Stadium and witnessed this shock.

Ngamaleu overflows

The right piston makes the difference in its corridor, but completely misses its center.

Here we go!

The starting signal for this game between Nigeria and Cameroon has just been fired. A place in the quarter-finals is at stake. The winner of this game will face Angola.

Both teams return to the field

This duel in the CAN 2024 round of 16 begins in just over five minutes. The two teams take the field at the Félix Houphouët Boigny Stadium in Abidjan.

A meeting

It is not the first time that Nigeria and Cameroon have met at this stage of the competition. In fact, the two teams crossed swords in 2019 and the Super Eagles won (3-2).

An almost miraculous qualification for Cameroon

The Indomitable Lions are the wonder of this final phase of CAN 2024. The Cameroonians were eliminated by the 88th minute of their final group game against Gambia. But Rigobert Song's men managed to score two goals in five minutes to qualify.

The Nigerian team

Nwabali – Ajayi, Troost-Ekong, Bassey – Aina, Onyeka, Iwobi, Sanusi – Simon, Osimhen, Lookman.

The Cameroon team

Onana is still on the bench, as is Aboubakar

Ondoa – Castelletto, Gonzales, Wooh – Mgamaleu, Ntcham, Zambo Anguissa, Tolo – Toko Ekambi, Magri, Nkoudo

A nice poster in perspective

On paper, Cameroon could have benefited from a more favorable opponent by finishing second rather than third Senegal and Guinea. But there you have it, the many surprises during this CAN competition Ivory Coast everything turned upside down. Nigeria are only second in their group behind Equatorial Guinea and therefore have to play against the Cameroonians in the round of 16.

The duel between the five-time Cameroonian winner and the three-time Nigerian champion promises to be an exciting encounter between two nations aiming for a place in the quarter-finals.
