10, 000 Cameroonian fans Set to Storm Uyo for the Big World Cup Qualifiers Showdown

Nigeria Vs Cameroon World cup qualifiers fixture isn't just another match. It' s tagged "the Bakassi War" and it' s fight to finish... Cameroon fans are not leaving anything to chance. They have decided to take the battle down to Uyo. mobilizing 10, 000 fans set to travel from Yaounde to Akwa Ibom on the 1st of September 2017.

"It's going to be strength for strength, cheering for cheering and the cameroonian fans are storming Nigeria by road." one of the fans told our correspondent in Yaounde. The reverse two legged fixture (which will be played under four days, September 1 and September 4 respectly) will go a long way to determine which Country top the Group B table and eventually qualify for Fifa World Cup Russia 2018.

Nigeria currently lead the Group with 4 points ahead of Cameroon, after winning away in Zambia and beat Algeria at home. And Nigeria is determined to maintain that lead by winning the two upcoming games or at least divide the spoil.

When they face each other on September 1 in Uyo, they will be reviving a long-running rivalry that takes place irregularly. The last time they played a competitive game was in 2004 and their last encounter came 11 years later in a friendly. Even though Nigeria has been the better team in their last two matches, the indomitable Lions will be full of confidence going into the encounter being current African Champions and having had a better warm up following their campaign at the Fifa Confederations Cup in Russia in June.

Of course, the Indomitable Lions, reigning champions, won two of their five titles in finals against the Super Eagles in 1988 and 2000.

But the cheering battle at the stadium stands will yet bring another dimension  to spice up the game. Nigeria supporters club is well renowned around world for their unrelenting cheering that spurs Super Eagles into miracle performances in the past. Some attributed it to superstitious rendering of some secred songs that strengthen the feets and skills of the Nigerian players.

Cameroonian supporters on the other hand are also known for their pot of fire, a fettish concoctions that claims to hypnotises the opponent team and weaken their strides... while strengthen the power play of the indomitable lions. And they are set to storm the Godswill Akpabio International stadium Uyo with their black magic, having mobilized 10, 000 fans for the journey, over 35 luxury buses have been charted from local transporters across borders.
