Cameroon Will Find Nigeria Tougher Than Chile, Says Ex- Eagles Star Babalade

Former Nigeria defender Ajibade Babalade, says Cameroon will find it difficult to beat the Super Eagles when the two sides meet in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in August.
The African Champions were defeated 2-0 by Chile on Sunday in the ongoing 2017 FIFA Confederation Cup, and Babalade believes Nigeria will be tougher for the Indomitable Lions than the South American Champions.
In an exclusive chat with Completesports, the former player said: "Well, the Cameroonians impressed me despite the loss.

"Chile are clearly a better team than South Africa that also won against Nigeria by the same score. I have to say that it is going to be a different ball game when it comes to Cameroon playing Nigeria. 

"There is more at stake in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers than in the Confederation Cup. Besides, I expect the Super Eagles to fired up for the match after the disappointing AFCON qualifier against South Africa.

"Our coaches should get the video tapes of their Confederation Cup Matches and study them very well.

"They are African champions but they will have weaknesses in their game which I hope the Super Eagles coaches will be watching out for."
