President Buhari lauds Eagles for 4-0 trouncing of Cameroon

Cameroon face Nigeria again in Yaounde on Monday evening, but Broos believes the Indomitable Lions have too much to do to qualify for next year's World Cup.

Nigeria are now one step closer to reaching the finals, with only the winning teams in the five qualifying groups going to Russian Federation next year.

Before the kick off, Nigeria have a full haul of six points after beating both Zambia and Algeria, while Cameroon trail by four points after drawing both of their games 1-1 against the same opponents.

Two first half goals from China based duo, Odion Ighalo and captain John Obi Mikel, gave Nigeria a healthy half-time lead over Cameroon.

Perhaps, substitute Iheanacho failed to read the script that the Eagles were playing the African champions, and made a decision to head the fourth from a sublime Ogenyi Onazi pull -out with 13 minutes left.

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

"Football, like the NYSC, is a powerful unifying platform for us as a nation".

Nigeria lead Group B of the World Cup third qualification round with nine maximum points.

It took until five minutes from time for Partey to equalise with his first worldwide goal.

Ghana laid siege to the Congolese goalmouth in the closing minutes, but wild shooting, especially from Thomas Agyepong, let them down.

"They were better, faster and more determined than us in one against one".

Asamoah Gyan and Ghana could not find a way to beat Congo.

Nuno Rocha struck twice in five first-half minutes - the second a penalty after Dean Furman's foul on Ryan Mendes - before Erick Mathoho's mindless sending off for the visitors essentially ended all hopes of a comeback.

Rattled South Africa rarely looked like levelling and were reduced to 10 men entering the final quarter when defender Erick Mathoho got a straight red card.
