After suffering defeat at the hands of Democratic Republic of Congo, the Super Eagles won for the second time under new coach Oliseh, courtesy of goals from defender Efe Ambrose, Moses Simon and Odion Ighalo.

Ahead of the World Cup qualifiers in November, Nwankwo Kanu has urged the Super Eagles not to rest on their laurels, adding that the supporters will remain happy as long as they keep churning our victories.

''Congrats Oliseh and the team well done boys for making Nigeria proud by winning yesterday's game.

''We all are happy just keep winning,'' Nwankwo Kanu stated.

The last time Nigeria met Cameroon in a competitive fixture prior to Sunday's game, John Utaka netted the game - winner after he was set up by Nwankwo Kanu in the quarter - finals of the 2004 African Cup of Nations.
