2018 WC Qualifier: Nigeria Thrash Cameroon 4-0 In Uyo

The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Friday beat Cameroon 4-0 in a 2018 World Cup qualifying match played in Uyo..
The Super Eagles will meet Cameroon in the return leg on Monday.

A goal apiece from Odion Ighalo, Chelsea FC winger, Victor Moses; skipper Mikel Obi and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho ensured Nigeria grabbed the maximum three points at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

After a sluggish start, Ighalo puts Nigeria ahead after receiving a fine pass from Mikel in the 28th minute.

The China-based forward, however, got yellow-carded for taking off his jersey while celebrating. Mikel made it 2-0 in the 42nd when he latched onto a Victor Moses corner.
Eleven minutes into the second half, Victor Moses combined with gangling winger Moses Simon before slotting home from inside the box.

Iheanacho, who came in for injured Ighalo, made it 4-0 when he nodded past goalkeeper Fabrice Ondo from Ogenyi Onasi assist in 77th minute.

With the victory, Nigeria top Group B with nine points, while Cameroon have just two points from three matches.

Both sides go head-to-head again next Monday and anything short of a win for Hugo Broos' men can see Cameroon say goodbye to Russian World Cup dreams.
