Nigeria Crush Cameroon in World Cup Qualifier

Nigeria Crush Cameroon in World Cup Qualifier

They finished third on their debut in 2014 in South Africa, but failed to go past the group stage a year ago in Rwanda.

A brace from Stephen Sarfo and a goal each from Vincent Atingah and Winful Cobbinah saw the Black Stars defend the WAFU Cup title they lifted in 2013.

Rabiu Ali scored a stunning free kick late in the game, but it could not change anything as the Super Eagles settled for second place. Sunday will be a new chapter we have to open and we will do so by trying to beat Nigeria. However, the team has come good in the ongoing sub-regional tournament after recovering from a shaky start against Gambia and has now booked a ticket to the grand final after beating Niger 2-0 on Thursday.

The tempo of the game picked up from where it left off when the second half resumed, with Patrick Razak, who replaced Gideon Waja, racing into the Nigerian area with the ball and was fouled in the process. Soon after, defence stalwart, Adeleye Aniyikaye copped an injury, prompting his substitution by Ariwachukwu Emmanuel.

Stephen Sarfo put the victory beyond doubt when he converted from the spot on 78 minutes to make it 3-0 and register his fourth goal fourth of the tournament.

After halftime, a rested TCU defense intercepted Rudolph in Cowboys territory and turned it into points on a 6-yard Anderson run. Anderson and the TCU offensive line dominated the game, as he carried 26 times for 160 yards and three scores.

Sarfo shot Ghana up in the 45th minute, causing Eagles to finally concede their first goal of the competition.

"We came into this competition under pressure because we lost to Burkina Faso at home and failed to qualify for the CHAN tournament", said Konadu.

Nigerians however pulled one back in the dying moments of the game.

Barrister Dalung said he will be in Ghana to motivate Nigeria's players who are mostly drawn from the Nigeria Professional Football league NPFL.
