Nigeria thrash Cameroon 4-0 in Uyo

The Super Eagles&apos attacking game caused enough embarrassment for the Cameroonian defence

Former Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan has sent a congratulatory message to the Super Eagles following their 4-0 thrashing of Cameroon in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match in Uyo on Friday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Depending on the outcome of Saturday's encounter, the Super Eagles could well book their ticket to Russian Federation with another victory over the Cameroonians on Monday when both sides meet in Yaounde in the reverse fixture.

Nigeria started the first half very slow as the defense was jittery at times. Cameroon have two points.

Obi Mikel's clever punt from midfield set Ighalo away for the first goal in the 29th minute.


Team captain, Mikel Obi, and forward, Odion Ighalo, who are plying their trade in the Chinese Super League, showed superb understanding between themselves upfront as they inspired a first half silencing of the Lions. Team captain, Mikel Obi doubled the lead for Nigeria in the 44th minute. Things only got worse when Iheanacho sent Nigeria leading with his 77 minute goal, making it four goals to nothing.

Cameroon, who have made an African record seven previous World Cup finals appearances and won the African Nations Cup in February, host Nigeria in a return qualifier in Yaounde on Monday.

The Super Eagles are now the leaders of group B of the CAF world cup qualification on 9 points, followed by Cameroon with 2 points, then Zambia with 1 point and Algeria 1 point.
