FIFA World Cup Qualifiers Nigeria demolish Cameroon

The return of Moses and Mikel to the "Super Eagles" line-up coincided with the best Nigerian performance for years as they crushed the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations winners.

"I watched the game against the Cameroonians on Friday and I am sure you have the ability to conquer them again in their own territory".

The Belgian said before the match that the "Indomitable Lions" needed to take at least four points off Nigeria to have a realistic chance of topping the table and qualifying. It's only by the ending minutes of the first half that the tables turned.

Nduka Ugbade, 1985 Golden Eaglets' Captain, yesterday said Nigerian football teams were capable of beating any team in the world due to their team work.

Buoyed by the opening goal and the boisterous home support, the Eagles doubled their lead after Ighalo dummied Moses' near-post corner-kick, allowing lounging Mikel to side-foot into the roof of the net.

Mikel scores the second goal.

The win means the Super Eagles top Group B on nine points while Cameroon have just two after three matches.

Maryland beat Texas! Here are the 12 weirdest things about this game
Texas: What a letdown for a team that offered so much promise in the preseason, but looked more like a redux of 2016 on the field. Like Pigrome, Antwaine Richardson was also injured during the third quarter as he went down while attempting to make a tackle.

A fourth goal from a flying header by substitute Kelechi Iheanacho off an Onazi Ogenyi cross in the 76th minute crowned a very satisfying outing for the hosts.

"So I am not afraid even if we don't make it to the Fifa World Cup".

"If we had won this game, we would have a chance, but we lost it and I hope everyone will learn from this".

"Every member of the team was in great form today, including the goalkeeper, Ezenwa".

No doubt, Cameroon will attempt to seek redemption when they face Nigeria at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaounde tomorrow evening.

"We promised to win for Carl and we have done so".
