Nigeria’s Super Eagles will today, in Yaounde, by 6:00pm, take on the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the second leg of the Russia 2018 world cup qualifiers.

The Super Eagles defeated their Cameroonian counterparts by four goals to zero on Friday, in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and will look to secure qualification for the world cup tournament by defeating the Cameroonians again in their own backyard.

Meanwhile, a host of the Super Eagles’ stars are at risk of facing a one-match suspension should they be booked in the Yaounde game.

The players include Chelsea star, Victor Moses, captain John Mikel Obi and striker Odion Ighalo who all risk been suspended for next month’s home game against Zambia.

Ighalo was booked last Friday during the 4-0 win over Cameroon, when he displayed a tribute to Jesus on his inside shirt, after he netted the opening goal.

Moses and Mikel Obi are also at risk, after they were yellow carded in previous qualifiers.

Moses was cautioned in the 3-1 win over Algeria in November, while Mikel Obi’s name got into the referee’s books in the closing moments of the 2-1 win against Zambia in Ndola, last year.
