Nigerians on social media have appealed to the Cameroon coaching crew to field Andre Onana in goal when the Super Eagles clash with the Indomitable Lions on Saturday.

This comes after Cameroon was confirmed to be Nigeria’s opponent in the AFCON Round of 16 following the five-time Champions 3-2 win over The Gambia.

Man United goalkeeper Onana was benched during the game, with his omission from the line-up speculated to not be unconnected with his questionable performance against Senegal where he conceded three goals as Cameroon fell 3-1 to defending champions Senegal.

The 27-year-old has been the subject of trolls and criticism since signing for Man United in the Summer after several howlers in goal for the English giants.

Taking to social media to react to the fixture, Nigerian football fans wished Onana will be fielded when both teams clash as they see it as an advantage for the Super Eagles attack led by reigning Africa Player of the Year, Victor Osimhen.
