'It was a very good game' - Fulham's Cameroon star on win against legendary rival NigeriaPublished: June 06, 2021
Zambo Anguissa expressed his delight after the Indomitable Lions' narrow 1-0 win against Nigeria in an international friendly staged at Stadion Wiener Neustadt in Austria on Friday, June 4.
The Super Eagles clearly dominated the game, especially in the opening minutes, only for Anguissa to net what proved to be the match-winning goal against the run of play.
The decisive moment arrived in the 37th minute when the Fulham midfielder latched on a loose clearance by William Troost-Ekong to fire a low shot beyond the desperate hands of goalkeeper Maduka Okoye.
It was Nigeria's first loss against Cameroon since they were beaten on penalties in the final of the 2000 Africa Cup of Nations.
Speaking to Fecafoot TV via Camfoot, Anguissa said : "It was a very good game. We wanted to win against one of our legendary rivals.
"It went well, because in the end we come back with a victory. But I think there is still room for improvement; we will try to learn from our mistakes to win more games".
The Super Eagles will face Cameroon again at Stadion Wiener Neustad on Tuesday, June 8 , starting from 1700 hours.
