Nige­ria maul Cameroon in Brus­sels friendly

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

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.
