Lagos - Super Falcons' assistant coach, Samson Unuanel has said it is not sheer coincidence that Cameroun and Nigeria are drawn in Group B of the 2012 AWC competition.
Aside Nigeria and Cameroun, Cote d' Ivoire and Ethiopia will contest the group qualification tickets at the biennial football showpiece in South Africa.
The Camerounian Indomitable Lionesses stopped Super Falcons from the London 2012 Olympic Games football event.
Unuanel told SuperSport.com that the group pairing is a divine favour for Nigeria to pay the Central African neighbours in their own coin.
"I only worry about my team, preparations and what to do to win matches not Cameroun or any other teams.
"Cameroun will be at the Olympics, we won't be there because they stopped us and that's the reason we must inflict a stiffer punishment on them when we meet at the AWC.
"We must cause them the AWC trophy, now I think of Nigeria, no other country.
"Our group is not a bad one though I understand no smaller team exists in the continent any more.
"We'll work on our team and ensure we present a solid squad that'll do Nigeria proud at South Africa."
The former Ocean Boys' manager is positive the six-time African champions will defend its title successfully.
"I know Nigeria will play in the final and will lift the AWC trophy for the seventh times," he said.
The 2008 AWC hosts, Equatorial Guinea happened to be the only African country aside Nigeria that have sipped from the continental trophy.
Equatorial Guinea are in Group A together with hosts, South Africa, Senegal and DR Congo.
The competition will run from October 28 - November 11 while Falcons will kick-off their title defence on October 29 against bitter rivals, the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroun in Bata, South Africa.
