It is not over yet, we stay very humble - Gernot Rohr

The Super Eagles&apos attacking game caused enough embarrassment for the Cameroonian defence

"We have to do everything to possible to win the game", he told media.

Nigerian senior national football team, the super Eagles on Friday crushed the Lions of Cameroon 4-0.

"There is no pressure anymore on Monday, Nigeria have nine points, we have two points", Broos said.

It was the flawless response for the Eagles after the shock home defeat to South Africa in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in June, as they now move up to nine points - seven points clear of second-placed Cameroon after three games.

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

Ola Aina, the new boy who has been cleared by Federation Internationale de Football Association to play for Nigeria said, "we are going to adopt the same approach and try to dominate them".

Algeria and Zambia, who have one point each, tackle each other in Lusaka on Saturday.

Friday's victory cemented Nigeria's place at the top of Group B having won three consecutive games in the qualifying series.

"We have no chance", Broos admitted after the Uyo debacle, saying the Eagles were clear favourites.

Their efforts yielded fruit when the third goal came courtesy of Chelsea's Victor Moses in the 55th minute.

The Eagles doubled their lead in the 43rd minute, when Mikel turned scorer by poking a Victor Moses corner from the left beyond the Cameroon goalkeeper.
