  • Nigeria's John Mikel Obi

Goals from Odion Ighalo, John Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho sealed the win, with Broos refusing to hold any hopes of a "miraculous" route to Russian Federation.

The in-form striker, who opened scoring for Nigeria in the first leg 4-0 drubbing, might be missing in action in Yaoundé, where the Super Eagles are aiming to qualify with a double win over African champions Cameroon and 12 points, provided 4-point Zambia fails to win at Algeria.

Businessman Aka Udofia has offered the Super Eagles the sum of $20,000 for every goal scored in Monday's 2018 World Cup qualifer against Cameroon's Indomitable Lions in Yaounde.

On Friday, the three-time African champions crushed the reigning African champions 4-0 to take a giant step towards qualifying for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

He said: "Whatever he did to win against Indomitable Lions, he got it right".

"There is no pressure anymore on Monday, Nigeria have nine points, we have two points", Broos said.

"We have to win all our next three games and hope Nigeria lose all three".

When Australia was reduced to 9 wickets with 37 runs to win, Cummins switched gears and tried to finish the match on his own. Warner scored 112 off 135, including 16 fours and one six, his 19th century before being baffled by delivery that kept low.


"But we have to defend our honour. I don't think this is possible".

Nigeria took the lead on 29 minutes when Ighalo latched onto a ball over the top from captain John Mikel Obi before drilling home.

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

The "Black Stars" trail leaders Uganda by five points and Egypt by four.

"We are ready for a big fight".

In Group D, Cape Verde came from behind to best South Africa 2-1 in Praia.

"They actually played a fine football today; I commend them for their brilliant performances, they have made the country proud and I want them to maintain this level of play". One more win from their remaining three Group B matches will probably be enough for Gernot Rohr's side to book a flight to Russian Federation.
