Nigeria maul Cameroon in Brussels friendly
Nigeria yesterday night in Brussels put to sword fierce rivals Cameroon 3-0 in a much improved display from the loss to DR Congo. After the shambolic showing against DRC in Mons last Thursday, the Super Eagles raised their game against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon to win this friendly and ease pressure on coach Sunday Oliseh after his major falling out with Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama
Nigeria deserved their lead in the 39th minute through Efe Ambrose.
The Celtic defender rose above the Cameroon defence to power home a free kick from the right taken by Mikel Obi. Incidentally, it was just minutes after Ambrose almost put the ball into his own net when his back pass beat an onrushing goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.
Outstanding Moses Simon scored his second Eagles goal on the hour when he blasted past the Cameroon goalkeeper after he was released by skipper Ahmed Musa.
Substitute Odion Ighalo took the game beyond the Indomitable Lions with a third goal two minutes from time when he headed home off a delightful cross by Elderson Echiejile.
