Cameroon are second with two points from two games behind the Super Eagles of Nigeria who have maximum points.

But anything short of victory in today's match will surely threaten the chances of Nigeria hoisting her flag in Russian Federation, next year. In 19 previous encounters, Nigeria has beaten Cameroon 11 times, lost four times and recorded draws four times.

Egypt is on the way up and Ghana is going down in Group E. Egypt has two wins from two matches, with Mohamed Salah a scorer in both victories. They also stopped the Eagles in Abidjan 1984; Casablanca 1988 to win the African titles.

"If we still want to have a chance of qualifying, we must take at least four points off Nigeria", the Belgian told reporters.

He said, "Well, as for the level of preparation for Nigeria and Cameroon match, everything possible has been put in place".

That is why the Super Eagles must guard against any kind of complacency in their approach to today's game. "The most important thing for us as a team is to win and nothing more".

It doesn't, however, pass the 52 inches from tropical cyclone Hiki in Kauai, Hawaii, in 1950 (before Hawaii became a state). Two other Houston reservoirs are overflowing, despite a controlled water release that aimed to prevent flooding downtown.

It means the Eagles will again play two defensive midfielders with one of them handed a freer attacking role, while there will be two wide-playing midfielders and another midfielder, most likely skipper Mikel Obi, playing behind the main striker.

We have a great team. We also need your support.

"It is an important game for us, we know it's going to be hard, but we are prepared to beat Nigeria".

Dalung also commented on the success of the FIBA Afro Basketball Women Champions, D'Tigress, who were presented to President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday.

The Super Eagles have been boosted to go all out to face Cameroon in Uyo as the Akwa Ibom State governor, Udom Emmanuel, has promised to pay $10,000 for every goal they score.
