Cameroon head coach Antonio Conceicao says his side’s triumph over Nigeria will go down in history.
The Indomitable Lions beat the Super Eagles 1-0 last Friday’s international friendly at Wiener Neustadt Stadium.
Zambo Anguissa’s lone effort in the 37th minute of the game gave the Lions their first win against the Eagles, whose shot failed to hit target, since 2000.
However, Conceicao admits there is still more work to be done despite Cameroon’s victory ahead of the 2021 AFCON.
“This victory facilitates our work. That is to say that we are on a good path. It is always much easier to work on victories than on more negative results.” He said.
“It will go down in history, but the most important thing is to see the behavior of my players both individually and collectively.
“We took notes; we saw positive things. Logically we need time to improve. We are not yet perfect, but I am very satisfied with the attitude and professionalism of my players.”
Both teams will meet again on Tuesday in the same venue at Austria.
