Onigbinde said: “Nigeria’s loss to South Africa was due to the absence of Mikel and Moses.
"I am not saying other players are not good enough to play for the national team, but the experience, the inspiration and leadership qualities of Mikel and Moses would have made the great difference.
“I noticed we lost due to lack of experienced players who can create chances with ease. I believe both Mikel and Moses can save Rohr’s job if they are available in the next match.
“I am confident that the Super Eagles will beat Cameroon, at least in the first fixture.”
A win for Nigeria in the match against the current AFCON champions will give the Super Eagles a nine-point in head start before going into the reverse fixtures of the World Cup qualifying draw.
