Russia 2018 Qualifier: Super Eagles Imposes A 2-0 Supremacy Over The Indomitable Lions Of Cameroun During The First Half In Oyo

The match that kicked off at 5 p.m Cameroon time, saw the Indomitable Lions of Cameroun gaining upper hands in the game, with scoring attempts frustrated by goalkeeper Ikechukwu  of Nigeria during the first 18 minutes.

Power changed hands from the 20th minute, when the Super Eagles Moses Simon made a terrible miss and went under the ball, firing a high and useless shot, bringing his colleagues back into the pitch.

In the 22 minute of play, Anguissa Zambo caught an offside for Cameroon, as he and his mates try to regain control of the match, but this flagged Ngadeu a Yellow Card, as he commits a clumsy challenge.

At the 23rd minute, the ball went into the Cameroon net, but straight away, the flag went up, as two Super Eagles strayed into the Cameroon box.

Adolphe Teikeu booked for a tackle from behind, which landed him a yellow card, 'second for the Lions'.

During the 28th minute, Nigerian Moses Simon heads over the right side side, with a comfortable cross, that met Odion Ighalo, who so far had been the king of the day, to shake Fabrice Ondoa's net at the 29th minute, throwing him at the corner.

Nigeria 1 Cameroun 0. The Nigerian supporters blew their trumpets louder, as the Cameroun defense suffers setback. 

Goalkeeper Ikechukwu for the green side, looked composed as he dealt with sporadic bursts from the Hugo Broos's boys.

In the 36 minute Moses Simon slipped through by Moses Victor, but his ambition was cut short by the now more composed Fabrice Ondoa.

Then still a combination of Moses Simon and  Moses Victor both of the Nigerian side, turned the Cameroon defense up side down during the 39 minute, tackling some long throws from Wildred Ndidi.

Moses looks for Ighalo as the Lions manage to scramble the ball clear, as Adolphe Teikeu made an interceptive clearance, giving a corner to the Nigerian. John Obi Mikel fires into the roof of the Fabrice Ondoa's net, giving Nigeria a supreme second goal at the 41st minute.

The referee blows his whistle, and that was to signal the half of the first half, Nigeria 2 - Cameroun 0.
