Cameroon coach Hugo Broos admits World Cup hopes are gone

As if that was not enough, Mikel Obi, with a corner kick taken by Victor Moses, slipped in the second goal at the 41 minute.

The Super Eagles moved up to nine points from three matches in Group B in Africa zone qualifying, while Cameroon remain on two points.

The Chief Executive Officer of Desicon Company, Akan Udofia, has promised the Super Eagles the sum of $20,000 for every goal scored in Monday's 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying cracker against Cameroon's Indomitable Lions in Yaounde.

"We pledged to win this match for Carl", said Germany-born Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr after a 4-0 rout of Cameroon in Uyo this weekend.

The massive 50-meters tall landfill at Ghazipur is one among the four major garbage dumping spots in Delhi. A crowd gathered to watch, among them residents who have complained about the dump for years.

"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.

"The most important thing is to come back [despite the embarrassing first leg] like we did before the 2017 Afcon". I do not think that is possible.

They visit Cameroon on Monday, with a draw putting them in position to start preparing for the 2018 World Cup finals.

The Osmanlispor man opened the scoring in the 18th minute after a mistake from debuting Joseph Attamah, and while Thomas Partey rescued a point five minutes from time, it wasn't enough to prevent the home supporters from turning on their team. Congo had led from the 18th minute after a defensive error was exploited by Thievy Bifouma and picked up their first point of the campaign.

"Why should we have a chance to the World Cup?"

"We are ready for a big fight".
