André-Frank Zambo Anguissa’s first half strike settled the clash between Cameroon and Nigeria in Friday’s international friendly at the Stadion Wiener Neustadt.
Zambo scored with a shot from range beating Maduka Okoye in the 37th minute of a relatively poor showing by both sides.
It was Cameroon’s only shot on goal even though Antonio da Silva Oliveira’s men saw more of the ball.
Nigeria registered 6 shots on target but were mostly thwarted by poor finishing and the brilliance of Simon Omossola.
