Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are out of the race to Russia 2018 World Cup race after succumbing to a heavy 4-0 loss to Nigeria Friday evening, according to the manager of the team Hugo Broos.

Goals from Odion Ighalo, captain Mikel Obi and second half efforts by Victor Moses and substitute Kelechi Iheanacho condemned Cameroon to their heaviest defeat ever in the hands of the Super Eagles.

A downcast Broos, who had talked tough in the days preceding the game admitted that the African champions have no hope of making it to their eigtht World Cup final appearance.

“The second leg is not important again. We don’t have a chance of reaching the World Cup. Russia 2018 won’t happen for us,” he moaned.

The Belgian tactician also admitted that his side didn’t play well and their experience did not count at the end of the day.


He said: “If you have the experience but didn’t play well on the day then your experience does not count. We lost today to a better team.”

With the result, Nigeria now have nine points from three games while Cameroon are stuck on two. The two sides play against each other again on Monday at the Stade Ahmadu Ahidjo in Yaounde.

  • Nigeria meant business from the blast of the whistle unlike there Cameroonian counterparts that were basking on old glory and forgot that old glory don’t count anymore in football but current form. I wish them the very best as they go and rebuild for 2022 because its over for them at this moment.

  • Mathematically u can stil qualify wy surrender or tryin to play hide and seek gain. 3 more games . 9 more points +2 equals 11 Yu opponent is going away. And only ve one home game and can suddenly become over confident as day goes by like Liberia did some years to 2002 World Cup wer so nothing is impossible . He who have hear let him hear

  • May god bless our guys for making us happy dis time

  • Nigeria super eagle should not loose focus because the world cup ticket is still available for all to clinch it but a win in the return leg against the Cameroonian will seal it.
