Moses helps Nigeria trounce Cameroon

Super Eagles Thrash Cameroon 4-0 In Uyo

Three-time champions, Nigeria, will play Cameroon on Monday in Yaounde in a Day Four encounter of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Africa qualifying race with five points clear of second-placed Zambia and seven ahead of third-placed Cameroon.

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos rang the changes at the interval, throwing on Stoke City's Eric Choupo-Moting, but after a brief spell of pressure from the Indomitable Lions, the Eagles struck again, this time off a devastating counterattack inspired by Mikel.

Goals from Odion Ighalo, John Obi Mikel, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanachopowered the Super Eagles past the Indomitable Lions who showed promises at the beginning of the game. It's only by the ending minutes of the first half that the tables turned. "We must fight hard for every ball for the 90 minutes".

Nigeria are sitting pretty in Group B with a maximum nine points from three matches.

On the half -hour, the Eagles took the lead with a marvelous strike, Ighalo latching onto a brilliant Mikel pass and turning his marker inside out before unleashing a left -footed grounder that sailed past Fabrice Ondoa.

5.6-magnitude quake detected in North Korea
While it was initially reported that the tremor was of magnitude 5.6, the USGS has then revised it to 6.3. South Korea's presidential office said Pyongyang may have conducted its long awaited sixth nuclear test.

Following Zambia's 3-1 home win against Algeria on Saturday, the Atlanta 1996 Olympic gold medal victor urged the Eagles to focus on their own games and not bother about how other teams in the group are faring.

"I believe Rohr is doing a very nice job; having a good reading of matches as well as his players".

The combination of Moses and Onazi were so sublime and that found Iheanacho who was unmarked and so headed into the empty net to make it 4- 0 for the Nigerians.

"They were better, faster and more determined than us in one against one. You (Chipolopolo) made us dance after that game please score first and finish the unfinished business I know Nigerian will lose to Cameron then Zambia becomes second", he said.

The 2017 AFCON star sat out of his team's training on Saturday due to an hamstring injury he sustained during the defeat to Nigeria and it remains to be seen if he will take part in their final session on Sunday.
