Nigeria Vs Cameroon: We're Keen To Finish What We Started - Mikel

Ikechukwu Ezenwa sparkled in his first start for Super Eagles

Odion Ighalo, John Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho were all on target for Nigeria in their victory.

Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State has said that the Super Eagles' victory on Friday against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon was a "testament" to the power of prayers.

Nigeria meanwhile will play Cameroon on Monday.

Nigeria are sitting pretty in Group B - branded the "group of death" - with a maximum nine points from three matches.

"Why should we have a chance to the World Cup?"

Leading the Group B of the qualifiers with nine points from three matches, the Super Eagles know that a victory today in Yaoundé will all but sealed the Russian Federation 2018 ticket, especially if the match involving Algeria and Zambia ended evenly.

This is because should Zambia their return leg tie against Algeria in Algiers and Nigeria get complacent in their upcoming fixtures against Cameroon and the Chipolopolo, it's not impossible that the final match day could be a winner-takes-all match.

Nigeria could be the first African side that will secure World Cup qualification ticket as a win for the Super Eagles will give Gernot Rohr's men the green light.

"But we have to defend our honour". I do not think that is possible.

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

In Group D, Cape Verde came from behind to best South Africa 2-1 in Praia.

"The importance of the game affected a few players and they did not reach their normal standard", conceded England-born coach Stuart Baxter. There are three matches left.
