The Cameroonian team is currently suffering from injuries, with key strikers Clinton N’Jie and Karl Toko Ekambi ruled out.
Head coach Hugo Broos is still confident his team can find a way through, despite the absentees.
“I know how it is when a coach loses his key players to injury, especially when there are crucial matches. Clinton is one of our best performers, same thing with Karl, but we should also know that injury is part of the game.
“Their injuries can’t deter us because we have capable replacements,” said Broos.
His “capable replacements” include Vincent Aboubakar, Benjamin Moukandjo and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
Cameroon in second place in Group B of the World Cup qualification in Africa trail their opponents by four points.
Nigeria lead the group with six points after wins against Algeria and Zambia, and are due to face Cameroon in Yaounde in the second meeting on Monday.
