HT: Cameroon, Nigeria end boring 45mins in stalemate

Nigeria and Cameroon played out a boring goalless draw in the ongoing friendly match at the Stadion Wiener Neustadt in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr promised to ring changes to the squad after their 1-0 defeat to the Indomitable Lions on Friday but to the surprise of many fans it was just two changes made by the German tactician and one was an enforced change.

Watford defender, William Ekong missed out through injury and replaced in the starting line-up by Valentine Ozornwafor while Captain Ahmed Musa was preferred to Ogenekaro Etebo.

There was no spark in the first 45 minutes as possession was even and the match lacked intensity with both teams very comfortable to keep the scoreline as it was.

Nigeria have the likes of Anayo Iwula from Enyimba and Lorient prolific striker Moffi on the bench if Coach Gernot Rohr needs more creativity and fire power in attack.
