Bellow is the full match analysis:

The Super Eagles of Nigeria inched closer to qualification for the 2018 World Cup with a 4-0 drubbing of fierce rivals Cameroon at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo, on Saturday.

It was the perfect 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.

Eagles coach Gernot Rohr made several changes to the youthful side that fell to the Bafana Bafana, with Mikel Obi returning to skipper the side, alongside Victor Moses, Odion Ighalo and Leon Balogun, and it was a completely different side from last time out.

After a nervy opening, the Eagles soon took control of the tie and a brilliant pass from Mikel freed Ighalo, who turned his marker inside out before rifling a left-footed shot past Fabrice Ondoa in Cameroon goal.

Buoyed by the opening goal and the boisterous home support, the Eagles doubled their lead after Ighalo dummied Moses’ near-post corner-kick, allowing lounging Mikel to side-foot into the roof of the net.

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos rang the changes at the interval, throwing on Stoke City’s Eric Choupo-Moting, but after a brief spell of pressure from the Indomitable Lions, the Eagles struck again, this time off a devastating counterattack inspired by Mikel.

The Eagles no 10 broke play deep in his half, and teed up former Chelsea teammate Moses who ran 50 yards before playing a one-two with the impressive Moses Simon and firing into the bottom right corner to make it 3-0.

With the life sucked out of the visitors, Nigeria struck again 13 minutes from time. Moses laid off for overlapping Ogenyi Onazi whose precise cross from the right was guided into the net by substitute Kelechi Iheanacho.

The return leg comes up in Limbe on Monday, where the Eagles could clinch the sole Group B ticket with two games to spare.
