2018 World Cup: Super Eagles beat African champions Cameroon

Goals from Odion Ighalo, John Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho, earned Nigeria’s Super Eagles 3 points in the World Cup Qualifiers game played today against Cameroon in Akwa Ibom, and also kept them on top of the table with 9 point, and leaving the defeated African Champions with just 2 points.

Nigeria took the lead on 29 minutes when Ighalo latched onto a ball over the top from captain John Mikel Obi before drilling home.

Ighalo was then booked for revealing a T-shirt in support of his international colleague Carl Ikeme, who is suffering from leukaemia.

Just before half-time, a corner from Moses was turned in by his former Chelsea team-mate Mikel Obi as he stabbed into the roof of the net from close range.

Moses scored the third in the 55th minute after an exchange of passes with Moses Simon.

The rout for Cameroon, who won the Africa Cup of Nations in February, was completed when Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho stooped to head home a cross from Ogenyi Onazi with 14 minutes left.

Also, Ghana scored in the 85th minute to earn a 1-1 draw against visiting Congo in Group E.
