Nigeria striker Moses Simon has expressed confidence and a focused mind set ahead of their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) round of 16 clash against Cameroon on Saturday, January 26.

The match, scheduled for an 8pm kick-off, promises to be a fiery encounter between two familiar rivals.

“We feel good,” Moses Simon declared at the pre-match press conference, emphasizing their focus on taking each match as it comes. “We hope to do like in the previous matches,” he added, subtly referencing Nigeria’s 3-2 victory over Cameroon in the 2019 AFCON.

However, Simon acknowledges both teams’ growth since then. “We know Cameroon are strong, and I think today they’re even better than in 2019,” he admits, while highlighting Nigeria’s own improvements. This cautious optimism reflects a deep respect for Cameroon’s strengths.

“We know their weak points,” Simon stated, underscoring the need for adaptability and tactical awareness. This focus on tactical execution suggests Nigeria will be prepared for Cameroon’s advances.

The match promises to be a thrilling spectacle. With Nigeria’s attacking prowess and Cameroon’s relentless determination, the clash will likely be a battle for midfield dominance and control of the tempo. Both sides, hungry for victory, are set to deliver a true test of character and tactical prowess in this Round of 16 fixture.
