The Super Eagles of Nigeria were too good for the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon as the former won convincingly in the knockout game at the 2023 African Cup of Nations.

Ademola Lookman scored in  both halves of the game, helping Nigeria reach the quarter finals of the tournament taking place in Ivory Coast.

Super Eagles who were one goal up after half time faced a scare when goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali got injured after taking a hit from the opposition player, he was replaced by Francis Uzoho afterwards.

Lookman’s first goal came when Victor Osihmen won the ball from a Cameroonian defender before setting up the Everton man for his first goal of the competition.

His second came after taking a clean hit from a Calvin Bassey cross from the left side and even when the Cameroonian asked some questions along the game, the Super Eagles were always able to provide an answer.
