Nigeria continue to increase their winning record against Cameroon.

Captain John Mikel Obi put up a splendid display on Friday as the Super Eagles romped ahead to an impressive 4-0 win over the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.
Mikel provided an assist for Odion Ighalo to score the opening goal before he got on the scorers’ sheet himself as the Eagles took a 2-0 half time lead.
Second half goals from Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho saw the Super Eagles securing their biggest win ever over Cameroon. They also take a big step towards qualification for next year’s World Cup event in Russia.
The Super Eagles will face Cameroon in the reverse fixture on Monday in Yaounde.
Today Nigerian Football team will again not be playing with their full squad considering the injury of Iwobi and our goal keeper, but we expect the likes of Iheanacho, Moses , Mikel, Emenike, Ighalo, Ndidi and the rest to step up and defeat the Lions once again, bringing us closer to our World Cup dream.

In a statement from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the young businessman from Akwa Ibom made the promise as he briefly greeted players and officials inside the chartered ARIK Bombadier CRJ 1000 aircraft just before take-off at the Ibom International Airport, Uyo on Sunday afternoon.
If history has shown us anything, it is that you should never come between a Nigerian and his money.
