Super Eagles' tactician, Gernot Rohr has hailed his team's defenders in Friday's 4-0 humiliation of African champions Cameroon at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo Aoifootball.com can report.
Before the kick off, Nigeria have a full haul of six points after beating both Zambia and Algeria, while Cameroon trail by four points after drawing both of their games 1-1 against the same opponents.
Broos admitted that he could lose his job, but he was ready to move on.
"They were better, faster and more determined than us in one against one".
We can now say the bad result against South Africa could have been a huge motivation, it could have been a turning point to achieve what we did.
"We have a very young team, obviously I have been here for a long time and now I am the captain of the team", said a proud Mikel at the post-match press conference.
A fan, Obed Kunda, while responding on Zambian's win over Algeria, said: "The guys have indeed revived their hopes of qualifying to Russian Federation 2018 world cup though its seems to be an uphill battle considering that Super eagles is 5 points ahead of us". There is only honour to defend, there is no importance to this match.
"I am not afraid of that and I don't think about that", he said after the game.
Victor Moses and Moses Simon combined to score Nigeria's third goal.
"The one person that I would say has been an influence to me a little bit is John Obi Mikel", he told Goal.
The rout for Cameroon, who won the Africa Cup of Nations in February, was completed when Leicester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho stooped to head home a cross from Ogenyi Onazi with 14 minutes left. Today's victory is for all Nigerians, at home and in the Diaspora.
That was why after the Cameroon game, the technical crew did not take any chances and invited the players into the dressing room and the discussion was about the return leg in Yaounde.
