Nigeria could be the first African side that will secure World Cup qualification ticket as a win for the Super Eagles will give Gernot Rohr's men the green light.
Nigeria meanwhile will play Cameroon on Monday.
Former Executive Chairman of Gombe State Sports Comission, Malam Farouk Yarma is backing the Super Eagles to record back to back victories over the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.
Nigeria achieved its highest win ever over Cameroon with the thumping of the Lions on Friday, but Mikel said he was aware the wounded Lions would want to salvage some pride.
"We have to win all our next three games and hope Nigeria lose all three".
"There is something like honour, we will defend that on Monday in Yaounde". I do not think that is possible.
The "Black Stars" trail leaders Uganda by five points and Egypt by four.
Nigeria have received clearance from Federation Internationale de Football Association for Chelsea defender Ola Aina to make his global debut in the World Cup qualifier against Cameroon on Monday. Congo had led from the 18th minute after a defensive error was exploited by Thievy Bifouma and picked up their first point of the campaign.
"We are ready for a big fight".
Although the "Pharaohs" have been African champions a record seven times, they have consistently battled to qualify for the World Cup, last reaching the finals 27 years ago.
In Group D, Cape Verde came from behind to best South Africa 2-1 in Praia.
"They will also be playing in front of their fans and that should lift them".
