1-0 was the score in Austria on Friday when three-time African champions Nigeria beat Cameroon in an international friendly match.

It has been a bit of a struggle for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations hosts in their last two international matches — a 0-0 draw against Rwanda and a rough 3-1 loss against Cape Verde.

The latter — along with Liberia, Nigeria’s Super Eagles are expected to beat in the World Cup qualifiers in September.

Nevertheless, both Cameroon and Nigeria got a warm-up Friday as they cruised through the qualifying stage for the African Cup of Nations.

The teams will go head to head once more on Tuesday for another friendly match as they continue to pick up steam towards the tournament at the beginning of next year.
