Russian Federation 2018: Nigeria's Super Eagles shock Cameroon's Indomitable Lions

Moses, and former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel, were the best performers as the Super Eagles took a big step towards Russian Federation 2018.

The Super Eagles had crushed the reigning African champions 4-0 in the first leg of the double header played last Friday in Uyo.

Super Eagles 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 Indomitable lions in their world cup qualification match against Nigeria, have lost 4-0.

Nigeria now top Group B with 9 points and will face Cameroon again on Monday at the Stade Omnispirts Ahmadu Ahidjo in Yaoundé at 6 p.m. "We need to win all three games and Nigeria have to lose all three games, I don't think that will happen", said the Cameroon boss.

"There is something like honour, we will defend that on Monday in Yaounde".

Thousands evacuated as Rakhine burns
Thousands of Rohingya have tried to flee into Bangladesh, but Bangladeshi border guards are reportedly turning them back. Arsa took advantage of the resentment by stepping up recruitment of members.

Algeria and Cameroon are not the only 2014 World Cup qualifiers from Africa struggling, with Ghana also in serious trouble ahead of a Group E match in Congo Brazzaville Tuesday.

After a rather tentative start by the home team, Ighalo marked his return with the opening goal after 29 minutes. "We still have nine points to fight for".

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

South Africa, hoping to open up a lead in Group D, scored early but conceded twice in five minutes to go down away 2-1 to the tiny Cape Verde Islands in a massive blow to their hopes.

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