President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerians to celebrate the Super Eagles after the team’s 1-1 draw with the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaounde.
The President in a tweet on Sunday said, ” Let’s celebrate our Super Eagles, holding Cameroon to a draw in Yaoundé. The march to #Russia2018 continues, and they have all our support”
Nigeria survived a late Cameroon onslaught to draw 1-1 in Yaounde and move closer to qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Moses Simon put the Eagles ahead on 30 minutes and substitute Vincent Aboubakar equalised from a 75th-minute penalty.
Unbeaten leaders Nigeria moved to 10 points from four matches in Group B and a home win over Zambia on October 7 will clinch a sixth World Cup appearance.
Dropping two points at home eliminated seven-time World Cup qualifiers Cameroon as only group winners go to Russia and they trail Nigeria by seven points with two matches to play.
The draw came three days after Nigeria thrashed African champions Cameroon 4-0 in Uyo.
