Super Eagles arrive Cameroon, in high Spirits

"We had one chance maybe", he said.

The Super Eagles 4-0 victory over the Cameroon Lions in Uyo Friday was, according to Odion Ighalo, Eagles' first goal scorer in that match, "a significant step" towards securing the ticket.

Coach Gernot Rohr said Aina, who can play at right-back or left-back, could now line up in Yaounde as the Super Eagles look for a second victory in four days over Cameroon.

The Nigerian side now has a comfortable lead of Group with nine points in their Russian Federation 2018 campaigns.

Front line: With Altidore suspended, I'd like to see Bobby Wood get a chance to be a lone forward who can stretch the defense. The United States is now sitting in third with eight points after two wins, two draws and two losses after six games played.

Nigeria can become the first African qualifiers for the World Cup in Russian Federation if they triumph in Yaounde and Zambia do not win in Algeria tomorrow.

They face Cameroon again at Yaounde on Monday in matchday 4 encounter.

"The African Cup of Nations and Confederations Cup are over and all we are thinking about is [the game against Nigeria] and get the much-needed result".

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.

The win means the Super Eagles top Group B on nine points while Cameroon have just two after three matches.

A win for Nigeria today will give the country 12 points and an eight point lead ahead of second-placed Zambia, who will be playing Algeria in Algiers on Tuesday.

After a rather tentative start by the home team, Ighalo marked his return with the opening goal after 29 minutes.

Perhaps, substitute Iheanacho failed to read the script that the Eagles were playing the African champions, and made a decision to head the fourth from a sublime Ogenyi Onazi pull -out with 13 minutes left.
