Nigeria Too Strong For 10-Man Cameroon

International Friendly

Result: Nigeria 3-0 Cameroon

Date: 11 October 2015

Venue: Edmond Machtens-Stadion

Efe Ambrose and Odion Ighalo were among the goals, as Nigeria earned a 3-0 win over Cameroon in an international friendly.

The Super Eagles were looking to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Congo DR.

Sunday Oliseh's men looked for an early lead and were nearly rewarded when Emmanuel Emenike went close in the ninth minute.

Emenike went close for the Nigerians in the 20th minute but Cameroon goalkeeper, Fabrice Ondoa, was on hand to keep out the striker's stinging effort from distance.

Ondoa came to Cameroon's rescue once again in the 32nd minute, this time keeping out Elderson Echiejile's effort from range.

The Super Eagles eventually broke the deadlock just before the halftime break when Efe Ambrose rose highest to head home John Obi Mikel's free-kick.

Cameroon got off to the worst possible start in the second when Stephane Mbia was shown a straight red card for a challenge on Sylvester Igbonu.

Carl Ikeme was called upon in the 56th minute, as the Nigerian goalkeeper got a strong hand towards Moukandjo's effort from distance.

However, Nigeria made their numerical advantage count and doubled their advantage in the 61st minute when Moses Simon slotted home from close range, after swift counter-attacking move.

The Super Eagles rounded off the scoring the 88th minute when in-form Watford striker, Odion Ighalo, headed home Echiejile's cross from the left.

Other result:

Ahmed Hassan Mekky bagged a brace to inspire Egypt to a 3-0 win over Zambia in their international friendly on Sunday evening.
