"It has been long we had a near ideal selection of players that had brought the best out of the Super Eagles, " he said.

The return of Moses and Mikel to the "Super Eagles" line-up coincided with the best Nigerian performance for years as they crushed the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations winners.

"We need to win our last three matches and for Nigeria to lose all of theirs, and I don't think that will happen".

Nigeria have received clearance from Federation Internationale de Football Association for Chelsea defender Ola Aina to make his worldwide debut in the World Cup qualifier against Cameroon on Monday.

Mikel scores the second goal.

Following Zambia's 3-1 home win against Algeria on Saturday, the Atlanta 1996 Olympic gold medal victor urged the Eagles to focus on their own games and not bother about how other teams in the group are faring.

The visiting team Cameroon, began the encounter, full steam ahead; a style that could only end up discouraging the Nigerians.

The Super Eagles are now the leaders of group B of the CAF world cup qualification on 9 points, followed by Cameroon with 2 points, then Zambia with 1 point and Algeria 1 point.

Eleven minutes into the second half, Victor Moses combined with gangling winger Moses Simon before slotting home from inside the box.

And the result was complete when substitute, Kelechi Iheanacho, headed home Ogenyi Onazi's cross from close range in the 76th minute.

The first goal was scored by Igalo after 29 minutes of play when he out muscled Cameroon's Ngadeu-Ngadjui. Congo had led from the 18th minute after a defensive error was exploited by Thievy Bifouma and picked up their first point of the campaign.
