Cameroon head coach Hugo Broos believes that his side can cope without some of their key attackers against Nigeria.

The reigning African champions will square off with Nigeria in back to back 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification Group B encounters.

Cameroon attackers Clinton N'Jie and Karl Toko Ekambi have both been ruled out of the two matches due to injures.

However, Broos promised that his side will give the Super Eagles of Nigeria a tough task when speaking on the Independent.

“I know how it is when a coach loses his key players to injury, especially when there are crucial matches," Broos said.

"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."

The Belgian tactician is likely to look to Benjamin Moukandjo, Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting against Nigeria.

The Super Eagles are scheduled to host Cameroon in Uyo on Friday, while the return leg match will be played in Yaounde next week Monday.
