Mikel Obi, Ondion Igalo, Victor Moses and Iheanacho were the goal scorers for the Nigerians on the day.

The result leaves Cameroon seven points adrift of Group B leaders Nigeria and it seems their hope of qualifying for Russian Federation 2018 is all but gone.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria are now in Cameroon for the second leg of the World Cup qualification encounter.

Nigeria's Super Eagles have secured a big victory over neighbouring Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

"The Cameroonians will come at us with everything on Monday, knowing they have to get a result and with anger born out of their humiliation in Uyo", he said.

"I am a good friend of the NFF President, Mr. Amaju Pinnick, and I am happy that I am here in time to see you guys before take-off for Yaounde", he was quoted to have said.

American economy grew 3% in April-June
Spending by governments, which had grown 0.7 percent in the initial estimate, was revised to a decline at a 0.3 percent rate. Yet the US economy is looking healthy anyway, especially on the jobs front. "All of those things weighed on US growth".


"But we have to defend our honour". "We would have to win our remaining three matches and hope Nigeria lose their last three. I don't think this is possible". "We must fight hard for every ball for the 90 minutes".

Victor Moses inspired Nigeria to take a step closer to World Cup qualification on Friday but Cameroon, Ghana and South Africa suffered serious blows to their chances of reaching next year's finals in Russian Federation.

The Osmanlispor man opened the scoring in the 18th minute after a mistake from debuting Joseph Attamah, and while Thomas Partey rescued a point five minutes from time, it wasn't enough to prevent the home supporters from turning on their team. It's only by the ending minutes of the first half that the tables turned.

Cameroon no longer have a realistic chance of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, according to coach Hugo Broos.

Cameroon are the reigning champions of Africa after their triumph over Egypt in the Nations Cup final in Gabon earlier this year.

"They will also be playing in front of their fans and that should lift them".
