- Cameroon is unbeaten in their last nine games in the AFCON, their joint-longest such streak in the tournament.

Players to watch 🧐
Although Nigeria's Arsenal man Alex Iwobi is yet to score in the tournament, he has looked bright in both of the games he started. It's bound to be a make or break season coming up for Iwobi at the Emirates, and a stellar display here as the key creative force for the Super Eagles would make a strong case.
After a wonderful season with Ajax, Cameroon stopper André Onana has kept three clean sheets in the AFCON. Clean sheets seem to become a habit for the 23-year-old, he kept 16 of them in 33 Eredivisie appearances in 2018/2019. He's rumoured to be alerting interest from Europe's top clubs, and he'll want to prove an insurmountable barrier tonight against Nigeria.
