Nigeria vs Cameroon prediction

This game will be crucial in deciding the path to the final with both sides yet to really hit top form at the tournament so far. Nigeria’s defensive form looks to be their strong suit, with just one goal conceded from three matches.

However, they have only scored three — with one from open play — and it could be a tight victory for Jose Pereiro’s team in Abidjan.

Prediction: Nigeria 1-0 Cameroon
