Opposition Watch : Super Eagles Road to Russia 2018 Counterparts

The indomitable Lions of Cameroon lead by Hugo Broos had to gather a Squad even with several disappointing late withdrawals by stars and core members of the team but it didn't stop them from securing a valuable point against a talented Burkina Faso on Saturday.

Cameroon scored their only goal through Benjamin Moukandjo stunning freekick but they couldn't prevent Issofou Dayo from scoring the equaliser for the stallions.

Observation : Elderson Echiejile will have a tough task against Christian Bassogog who was so dangerous on the flank alongside striker Jacques Zoua who started ahead of Vincent Aboubakar.
The Desert Foxes of Algeria managed to draw two all with the Sharp and Enterprising Zimbabwe side in Franceville.
Riyad Karim Mahrez who is the current African Player of the Year was the hero for the Fennecs as his brace means he is now the top scorer of the ongoing Afcon.
Zimbabwe surprised one of the favourites when they came from behind to lead in the first half through goals from CHAN 2014 Revelation Mahachi and a Penalty converted by Mushekwi after Bhasera was brought down in the box.

Mahrez scored his second late in the game to give George Leekens his first competitive point as the Coach of Algeria.

Observation : Algeria defence is becoming old and weak and it was glaring against Super Eagles and it was further exposed by the warriors most especially when they were trailing 1-2 in the match.
Super Eagles Manager is currently in Gabon to Scout Cameroon and Algeria.
