Moses inspires Nigeria to crushing World Cup win

Moses inspires Nigeria to crushing World Cup win

The Super Eagles are top of Group B on nine points after three matches, seven ahead of African champions Cameroon.

Cameroon's fightback in the second half was feeble in the face of the commanding Nigerian defense line which had Leon Balogun all over and William Troost-Ekong stifling the opponents play.

I just hope my players will have the same mentality that I have - that they will fight on Monday till the last minute - to beat Nigeria.

The China -based hitman opened the scoring in the 29th minute after being set up by the returning John Obi Mikel, before the midfielder - another CSL import - added a second before the break.

"If Ighalo can not play, we will decide, but we will wait till the last minute for him to improve; we have two other possibilities-we have Kelechi who came in and scored in Uyo and also we have Anthony who is coming to the team for the first time".

Aina, who is on a season-long loan at Hull from Chelsea, was brought in by the Eagles coach to fill the gaps in the full-back positions.

Otherwise, Rohr is not expected to make several changes to his starting XI from the first meeting.

Broos will hope for an improved performance from his team when they host Nigeria in the return match tomorrow evening. "And we did not have the full complement of our team", he said.

"I watched the game against the Cameroonians here in Uyo on Friday and I am sure you have the ability to conquer them again in their own territory".

"We will give our best and play for pride".

"But we will now need to win our next three matches and expect Nigeria to lose their next three games to stand any chance".

Kick-off time today inside the Amadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde is 6pm.
