The Super Eagles of Nigeria have intensified their training ahead of their second friendly encounter with the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon scheduled for Tuesday, June 8.
Both teams had met four days earlier at the Stadion Weiner Neustadt, Vienna, Austria where a lone strike by Zambo Anguissa gave Cameroon victory over their neighbours.
Nigeria and Cameroon face off in double friendlies in preparation of the World Cup qualifiers slated for September this year and the Indomitable Lions were victorious in the first encounter.
Both teams approached the encounter playing for pride as it was explosive right from the start to the end of the encounter.
The only goal of the game came in the 37th minute through André-Frank Zambo Anguissa who released a low but powerful shot from about 25 yards leaving Maduka Okoye hapless in goal.
And ahead of the second game, the Super Eagles have increased their level of preparation as anything short of victory will see them go down the FIFA rankings.
Coach Gernot Rohr is under pressure to win the tie as both teams square-up once again before they depart the Austrian City.
Nigeria will miss the services of William Troost-Ekong and Jamilu Collins when they file out on Tuesday in Vienna.
