Super Eagles victory was down to prayers - Governor Udom

Devastated Cameroon will be receiving Nigeria on Monday 4 September, at the Ahmadou Ahidjo stadium in Yaounde for their second leg match.

The result leaves Cameroon seven points adrift of Group B leaders Nigeria and it seems their hope of qualifying for Russian Federation 2018 is all but gone.

Zambia have four, Cameroon two and Algeria, the most impressive African side at the 2014 World cup in Brazil, only one.

The latter who occupy the second spot in the group are now five points behind a revived Super Eagles.

Nigeria are capable of beating any team in Africa following their 4-0 destruction of Cameroon, according to team captain John Obi Mikel.

"They can also have light training at the annex if they want to".

The Nigerian struggle was crowned with a first goal by Odion Ighalo at the 29 minute.

They will do battle with Cameroon tomorrow evening in the state capital of Yaounde.

Aina, who is on a season-long loan at English Championship side Hull City, was scouted by the Super Eagles to fill a gap in the full-back positions.

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

The Indomitable Lions took the game to Nigeria rather than sit back in their defence. "And we did not have the full complement of our team", he said. "It will be a tough affair but we will give our very best to take the three points".

Congrats super Eagles. We are proud of you! "So, I can say we have two good centre forwards who are ready to play on Monday".

"If we had won this game, we would have a chance, but we lost it and I hope everyone will learn from this".
