Nigeria 4 – 0 Cameroon

Nigeria’s Super Eagles had a 4-0 win over Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in a 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifying game in Uyo, on Friday.

Odion Ighalo, Mikel John Obi, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho scored for the Super Eagles.

Ighalo opened scoring for Nigeria. The striker ran onto Mikel’s pass over the Cameroon defence, held off Michael Ngadeu before firing left-footed.

Just before the break, Mikel was quickest to get on the end of Moses’s corner kick to neatly finish, for the second goal.

Cameroon returned for the second half where they were hit by a third goal from Moses.

Stunned and confused on how to plot their way back, the Indomitable Lions just could not get into the groove and 14 minutes to time, Kelechi Iheanacho scored the fourth goal, after a good work by Moses and Onazi.

At 4-0, Nigeria is at the top of Group B in the African qualification for Russia 2018 with seven points.

Cameroon remains second with two points until Zambia and Algeria meet in Lusaka on Saturday.

Both Cameroon and Nigeria will go return for the second time in the group in Yaounde on Monday.
