Nigeria’s Super Eagles say they are determined to extend an unbeaten streak of five matches when they confront the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon tonight at the Stadion Wiener Neustadt, Austria in an international friendly.

The game is scheduled to kick off at 7:30pm Nigeria time.

Three-time African champions Nigeria have not lost a match since they were edged by the odd goal by reigning African champions Algeria in an international friendly also in Austria in October 2020.

Since then, they have drawn 1-1 with Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles in a friendly; drawn 4-4 and 0-0 with Sierra Leone in back-to-back 2021 AFCON qualifying matches in November 2020; defeated Benin Republic 1-0 in Port Novo in another 2021 AFCON qualifier and walloped Lesotho 3-0 in the final 2021 AFCON qualifier in Lagos.

Defender Anthony Izuchukwu, who plays for Sparta Trnava of Slovakia, joined up with the Nigeria camp at the Hilton Garden Inn, Wiener Neustadt Osterreich on Wednesday to take the number of players in the camp to 21.
