Nigeria placed in Pot 1 for 2012 AFCON Qualifiers Draw

Eagles Won’t Lose Sleep over Cameroon AFCON Match says Rohr

In the 16th minute, Cameroon had their first decent opportunity when Pierre Kounde whipped in the corner to the centre of the box, but Michael Ngadeu-Ngadj's header went over the bar.

Ighalo opened the score line after 18 minutes of play by sending the ball inside the net from 18 yards.

Nigeria had another chance to increase their lead in the 38th minute, with Musa cruising past his Ngadeu, but the Cameroonian defender was spot on with his tackle to clear the danger.

Odion Ighalo scored two goals while Alex Iwobi scored what turned out to be the winning goal.

President Muhammadu Buhari was elated on Saturday, following the Super Eagles victory over the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the ongoing African Cup of Nations hosted by Egypt.

The implication of this is that Super Eagles can not meet any of the teams in Pot 1.

Trump has also publicly waffled on whether he meant to pardon Gallagher and other military personnel accused of war crimes. Scott said he asphyxiated the teen after Gallagher had stabbed him to save him from his Iraqi captors.

The Indomitable Lions put together a sustained spell of pressure towards the end of the first half and were rewarded with an equaliser in the 41st minute. It was the desire from the players that made us won this game against Cameroon. While Nigeria surrendered Group B leadership to Madagascar on Sunday, Cameroon on Tuesday also failed to live up to expectations and were held to a goalless draw by low rated Benin Republic thus surrendering Group F leadership to rivals, Ghana.

Moments later, Cameroon came close to extend their advantage through Kounde's deflected off Ola Aina, but Akpeyi somehow managed to save the danger.

The Super Eagles were 1-0 victors over Guinea and Burundi in their previous games, and Gernot Rohr's side has now failed to score a few times in each of their last six games (three goals total).

And it proved the ideal masterstroke after Ighalo volleyed Musa's chest-trapped past Andre Onana 63 minutes on the clock.

There were no further clear-cut scoring opportunities as the Super Eagles knocked out the defending champions.
