Head coach of Cameroon, Hugo Broos, has promised to help the Super Eagles qualify for the 2018 World Cup, after his own team crashed out of the race on Monday.
The Indomitable Lions drew 1-1 with Nigeria in Yaounde, to end the African champions’ World Cup dreams.
However, the Eagles are top with 10 points, six ahead of Zambia who travel to Algeria on Tuesday.
“We are an ambitious team and we had two goals early this year: to win the Africa Cup of Nations and qualify for the World Cup,” Broos said.
“But in life it’s almost impossible to achieve all your goals. We were poor on Friday, but on Monday we did a very good performance. If we had been a little lucky we could have won.
“We’ve had some luck before, but this time we weren’t so lucky. We’re out of the World Cup, but we will take our remaining two games very seriously and try to beat Zambia away and Algeria here.
“Maybe we’ll help our friends Nigeria to qualify by beating Zambia and Algeria.”
