Super Eagles Thrash Cameroon 4-0 In Uyo


Eagles coach Gernot Rohr made several changes to the youthful side that fell to the Bafana Bafana, with Mikel Obi returning to skipper the side, alongside Victor Moses, Odion Ighalo and Leon Balogun, and it was a completely different side from last time out.

They are runaway leaders of their qualifying group with nine points from three matches, while Zambia are now second on four points after a 3-1 home win against bottom team Algeria on Saturday.

The Eagles are now unbeaten in 33 World Cup qualifying games.

More work lie ahead for the Super Eagles who will battle Cameroon in a return leg on Monday, September 4, 2017, at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium, Yaoundé.

Former Executive Chairman of Gombe State Sports Comission, Malam Farouk Yarma is backing the Super Eagles to record back to back victories over the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

Moses scored once and helped set up two others as Nigeria hammered African champions Cameroon 4-0 in Uyo to keep up their 100% record in Group B.

"There is something like honour, we will defend that on Monday in Yaounde".

"The Super Eagles have done the job here and I bet you, we are not going to lose that match". They also take a big step towards qualification for next year's World Cup event in Russian Federation.

"They can also have light training at the annex if they want to". It's only by the ending minutes of the first half that the tables turned.

"We are ready for a big fight".

The result means Ghana stay third in Group E with just two points from three matches, while it was a first point of the campaign for Congo.
