Federation Internationale de Football Association clear Chelsea's Ola Aina for Nigeria-Cameroon

Federation Internationale de Football Association clear Chelsea's Ola Aina for Nigeria-Cameroon”

Chelsea's Moses was key to the dominance of Nigeria, who were 2-0 up at halftime through Odion Ighalo and John Obi Mikel and added two more through Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho in the second half.

Nigeria have nine points from three matches in Group B in Africa zone qualifying, while Cameroon remain on two points.

The Eagles are aiming to become the first team to complete a double over Cameroon in a World Cup qualification round with victory on Monday night.

On Friday, the three-time African champions crushed the reigning African champions 4-0 to take a giant step towards qualifying for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Nigeria achieved its highest win ever over Cameroon with the thumping of the Lions on Friday, but Mikel said he was aware the wounded Lions would want to salvage some pride.

Nigeria travel to Youande for the fourth group game against Cameroon which will be played on Monday, September 4.

"But we have to defend our honour".

"We have to win all our next three games and hope Nigeria lose all three".

"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. "I don't think this is possible".

Coach Gernot Rohr must be reminded that in the qualifiers for the World Cup in Italy in I990, the Super Eagles needed to avoid defeat in the same stadium to qualify but succumbed to a 1-0 defeat, which automatically denied them the ticket.

The "Black Stars" trail leaders Uganda by five points and Egypt by four.

Broos has given up on Cameroon qualifying for the World Cup.

After a rather tentative start by the home team, Ighalo marked his return with the opening goal after 29 minutes. "We will try, of course, to contain them; they are aggressive and very physical but we are also ready physically to have a big fight with them".
