The rivalry between the Indomitable Lions of Cameroun and Super Eagles of Nigeria goes a long way in the narrative of African football history especially at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Prior to the 2004 quarter finals clash at the 2004 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia, Cameroun had already defeated Nigeria at the 2000 Africa Cup of Nations in Lagos via penalty shootout, so it was more or less a revenge mission against the defending champions.
Patrick Mboma, Samuel Eto’o Rogobert Song, Jay Jay Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo, John Utaka were some of the gladiators on the field on that afternoon at the Stade Mustapha Ben Jannet, Monastir.
