Afcon 2019: Seedorf gets to grips with Andre Onana & co. as Cameroon train in Alexandria

The Indomitable Lions commenced preparation for Saturday’s Round of 16 clash against the Super Eagles with their training in Alexandria

Cameroon had their first training session in Alexandria ahead of Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations clash against Nigeria.

The reigning African champions hit the ground running in preparation for the crunch Afcon classic against Gernot Rohr’s men at Alexandria University Stadium.

Both teams finished as runners-up in their respective groups and the winners will face either South Africa or hosts, Egypt, in the quarterfinals.

Nigeria defeated Cameroon 2-1 in their last meeting at Afcon, with Austin Okocha and John Utaka erasing Samuel Eto’o’s strike at Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet, Monastir in 2004.

The Indomitable Lions are unbeaten in their last nine games in the competition (W4 D5), their longest streak in the tournament since February 2000 – February 2004 (12).

Their last defeat was against Cote d’Ivoire on January 28, 2015 during the preliminary rounds, when Max-Alain Gradel’s effort separated the sides at Nuevo Estadio de Malabo, Malabo.
