The defending African champions last met Nigeria in the competition in 2004 with the Eagles winning 2-1.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Seedorf, a Dutch legend, admitted that having struck twice in the tournament, he is worried about his side’s attack.

“I do not think of Nigeria (opponent in the round of 16), we just finished the match,” the former AC Milan man told France Football.

“I’m very happy because we qualified, but we were disappointed because we wanted to win the match, we completely controlled this match.

“We have to improve in several details, especially in attack, we have to be smarter to create more opportunities, we have not conceded a goal yet, there are positive things for the future.”

Concise News had reported that Super Eagles star Etebo Oghenekaro has admitted that the clash against Cameroon at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2019 is a big one.

Speaking ahead of the game, Etebo who features for Stoke City in the English Championship, assured that the team will give their best when they fight the Indomitable Lions.

“We have a big task ahead and so am going to make sure that I give my best for the team,” he told Brila FM.
