The Super Eagles of Nigeria moved a step closer to qualifying for the World Cup 2018 World Cup in Russia with a comprehensive 4-0 thrashing of Cameroon.
Odion Ighalo started the rout in the 29th minute when he raced through to meet a well weighted pass from captain John Obi Mikel and brilliantly held off his marker before releasing a left footed grounded to open scoring.
Mikel slotted home the second for Nigeria when he toe poked a corner kick from Moses to increase Nigeria lead three minutes before the half time break.
The Eagles went into the break conveniently leading 2- 0, and they wasted no time in making it 3-0 after the break when Moses profited from a counter attack to drill home a low finish off a tee off by Moses Simon.
Substitute Kelechi Iheanacho put the game beyond the reach of the Cameroonians, when he headed home a cross from Ogenyi Onazi to seal a comfortable 4- 0 win for the Super Eagles.
The win takes Nigeria’s point tally to nine from three games while Cameroon stay rooted in second spot with two points ahead of the reverse tie against Nigeria in Yaounde.
