AFCON 2019: Buhari speaks on Super Eagles' victory over Cameroon

AFCON 2019: Buhari speaks on Super Eagles' victory over Cameroon

Musa was looking risky and in the 38th minute, he skipped past his marker on the left wing and tried to cut inside past Ngadeu, but the burly Cameroonian defender halted his progress with a well-timed tackle. Stéphane Bahoken got on the end of a cross from Christian Bassogog.

After failing to secure top spot in Group B, the Super Eagles will now face Cameroon who finished second in Group F.

Odion Ighalo gave Nigeria a 19th-minute lead but Cameroon hit back with two goals in quick succession before halftime from Stephane Bahoken and Clinton Njie to take a 2-1 lead.

Iwobi scored the winning goal for Nigeria after receiving a through pass from Ighalo.

Three minutes later, Ighalo turned provider as he set up Iwobi who beat Andre Onana with a calm finish to set off wild celebrations among the Nigerian players, officials and media.

Cameroon on three occasions defeated Nigeria in the final AFCON (1984, 1988 and 2000).

Apple Tipped To Ditch "Failure-Prone" Keyboard
Finally, after years and thousands of complaints, Apple apparently made a decision to change its posture on their keyboard design. Earlier this year, several users reported reliability issues and failing keys when using Apple's butterfly keyboard.

After losing to Madagascar, the usual suspects such as Alex Iowbi and Odion Igahlo returned for Nigeria with the Cameroonians putting their best foot forward too. Team news is coming up!

It was the first time Cameroon had conceded in Egypt, but after scoring just twice in three group games the Indomitable Lions matched that output in three frenzied minutes before half-time. He turned provider for the victor, slotting through Ngadeu's legs to put Iwobi through on goal.

Warm-up time for the Super Eagles!

Nigeria were rewarded for their impressive start to the match with a goal in the 19th minute in a scrappy fashion.

And initiating the build up from the defence to attack was awesome which made the little man in the middle unstoppable with his ball-distribution.

It could have gone the way of the Indomitable Lions but they slipped at crucial times.
