5 September 2017 No Comment

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will bag a cash gift of 95.000 Dollars after thrashing current African Champions, Cameroon by 4-0 in Uyo, AkwaI bom State of Nigeria during the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday September 1, 2017.
Before the encounter, Sports Minister Solomon Dalunghad announced a cash reward of Five Million Naira for each goal scored by Gernot Rohr’s men – and having put four past Hugo Broos’ men, they will get 20 Million Naira ($55,000).
Also, Akwa Ibom State Governor Udoh Emmanuel promised on Thursday to reward them with $10,000 for each goal scored against the reigning African champions Cameroon and that amounted to $40,000.
His promise came after he redeemed his earlier $30,000 pledge for a 3-1 win over Algeria which was inspired by Victor Moses’ brace and Mikel Obi’s strike in November 2016.
Fortunately, goals from Odion Ighalo, John Mikel Obi, Victor Moses plus Kelechi Iheanacho on Friday mean the three-time African kings will smile to the bank after crushing the reigning African champions, Cameroon.
The victory keeps Nigeria on top of Group B with nine points, opening a seven-point gap over second-placed Cameroon before Algeria and Zambia meet later on Saturday.
