Odion Jude Ighalo, John Obi Mikel, Victor
Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho found the back
of the net as Nigeria thrashed bitter rivals
Cameroon 4-0 at the Godswill Akpabio
International Stadium on Friday, keeping the
Super Eagles at the top of Group B in the race
to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
Ighalo opened the scoring, slotting past
Fabrice Ondoa after 29 minutes, following a
perfect pass from Obi.
Obi then took centre stage, he came across
a bouncing ball to send a left-footed volley
beyond the overworked Ondoa in the 43rd
minute to record his sixth international goal.
Chelsea winger Victor Moses didn’t have to
wait too long for his goal though, Moses
Simon unselfishly squaring the ball for his
team-mate who riffled a low grounder to the
net ten minutes out of intermission.
On 77 minutes, substitute Iheanacho
completed the rout with a brilliant header
from Ogenyi Onazi’s cross from the right.
The result means Gernot Rohr’s side move
seven points clear in the standings, with
Zambia and Algeria yet to play their third
game in Group B.
