Super Eagles recover to beat Cameroon 3-0

12 October 2015, 13:12

Brussels - The Super Eagles of Nigeria recovered from last Friday's 2-0 defeat to the Leopards of DR Congo to beat the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 3-0 in an international friendly in Brussels on Sunday.

The Eagles dominated much of the first half and could have been two goals up before defender Efe Ambrose rose highest in the six-yard box to nod past Fabrice Ondoua off a free –kick by John Mikel Obi for Nigeria’s first in the 39th minute.

Cameroon’s task was made more difficult early in the second half when Captain Stephane Mbia earned a deserved second yellow card for a second stamp on Sylvester Igboun, and thereby depleting the Lions.

Yet, Nigeria’s quality and passion was never in doubt, and speedy winger Moses Simon got a second (and his second goal for Nigeria at senior level) when he rounded the Cameroonian defence after a delightful Ahmed Musa pass, and shot brilliantly past Ondoua.

The Super Eagles were impressive on the turf of the Edmond Machtens Stadium, banishing memories of the defeat to Democratic Republic of Congo on Thursday with a marvelous response.

Given their distinct superiority, it was not a surprise when England –based Odion Ighalo got Nigeria’s third (and his own second goal at senior level) with a powerful header off an inviting pull –out by Elderson Echiejile.

The win means Sunday Oliseh has won two of his first four games - albeit friendlies. The other two games have ended in a draw and a defeat.
