Nigeria’s 3-2 victory over Cameroon at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations has football enthusiasts celebrating across social media.
Despite being down 2-1 at half-time, Gernot Rohr’s team showed resilience and fought their way back to victory, with Odion Ighalo’s brace and Alex Iwobi’s strike doing the damage at the Alexandria Stadium.
The triumph over the Indomitable Lions secured Nigeria’s progress to the quarterfinals.
Football enthusiasts are delighted by the win but they have called for an improved performance when they face the winner of the game between South Africa and Egypt on July 10.
