Nigeria v Cameroon: Super Eagles urged to cut out individual errors after shock Madagascar loss

Nigeria must learn from the mistakes they made against Madagascar as they head into their Africa Cup of Nations last-16 tie with reigning champions Cameroon, according to coach Gernot Rohr.

The Super Eagles slipped to a surprise 2-0 defeat to Barea in their final Group B game, with the AFCON debutants finishing top of the pool.

Leon Balogun was at fault for Madagascar's opening goal as he was robbed of possession, and the defeat set up a contest against Cameroon in the last 16.

Rohr wants his side to cut out such errors, but added Nigeria can use the defeat as extra motivation ahead of Saturday's encounter in Alexandria.

"I'm scared of us committing individual errors and I hope we won't have individual errors again that will cost us," Rohr told a news conference.

"The match against Madagascar was a little deception, but we and the fans have learnt to be humble.

"The loss was a lesson we'll all learn from. I trust my team. We'll prove to Nigerian fans that the last game was just a mistake.

"There were changes in the team to play some players and keep them in the rhythm of the competition, but now the best team have to start against Cameroon to do their best and make Nigeria proud."

Cameroon finished second behind Ghana in Group F and are yet to concede a goal in the competition, though they have only netted twice themselves.

And coach Clarence Seedorf knows the Indomitable Lions must be at their best to see off another of the tournament favourites.

"It is not new to us, trying to win. It's normal for us," Seedorf told reporters.

"Our team is good, yet Nigeria is also a big team. All we have to do is perform well and see where it leads us."
