85 – Ikeme comes out to clear a back pass which a Cameroon forward was chasing right inside the Nigeria goal area. That was a close shave!

83 – Cameroon have not threatened the Nigeria goal for some time now

82 – Leon Balogun cuts off another dangerous attack by Cameroon. He has also enjoyed himself in this contest

80 – 10 minutes of play left and it seems like Cameroon have lost heart…

79 Ahmed Musa comes out for Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi

78 – Ighalo caught offside

76 – Ndidi looking decent in defensive midfield for Nigeria and Moses Simon is having his best game in a Nigerian shirt for sure

74 – Nigeria change – Ighalo for Emenike

73 – Vincent Aboubakar heads into the net beyond Ikeme. But it won’t count as he was offside

71 – Cameroon change – Ndy has replaced Ondoa in goal. Rabiu Ibrahim in for Igbonu, Nigeria change

70 – Emenike ought to have done more after he was set up from the left flank. Nigeria are flying here now, but you should always expect Cameroon to keep on fighting till the last minute and that is why they are known as the “African Germans”.

67 – Fai Collins comes in for Bassong – Cameroon change

63 – Wilfred Ndidi comes in for Mikel, it’s a defensive change. Oliseh wants to close shop against the Indomitable Lions already

62 – Nigeria 2 Cameroon 0

The Gent winger takes on Bassong after he was released by a long ball by Ahmed Musa and he let fly as the Norwich City defender retreated

60 – GOAL! Moses Simon doubles Nigeria lead

59 – Mikel gives away a corner as Cameroon launch a swift counter

56 – Carl Ikeme gets a hand to Moukandjo’s goal-bound shot for a corner to Cameroon. Save of the match, maybe, but Ikeme is holding his waist. Is he injured?

54 – Foul by Nigeria’s Moses Simon by the Cameroon corner flag, free kick to the Indomitable Lions

53 – Nigeria defence clear their lines again, very nicely

50 – Cameroon attack again but Leon Balogun tackles Aboubakar on the edge of the box before he could pull the trigger. It is a masterful tackle by Balogun, who is tonight playing in the heart of defence

47 – Red card for Mbia! It’s a crunching foul on Igbonu and it’s his second booking of the night and Cameroon will now be playing a man down and a goal down

44 – Moukandjo is taking on the Nigeria defence now as Cameroon chase the game

40 – Nigeria win a corner after a desperate Cameroon clearance to stop the racing Ahmed Musa

Nigeria deserved their lead and Ambrose did very well to power home past the Cameroon goalkeeper off a Mikel free kick after Igbonu was fouled.

39 – GOAL! Efe Ambrose heads Nigeria ahead

38 – Igbonu is causing Cameroon defence all sorts of problems from the right wing now and he wins a free kick in a good position

36 – Cameroon are now pushing forward, but Nigeria are not sitting back either. It’s end-to-end stuff thus far

34 – Nigeria defence in taters as Efe Ambrose almost concedes an own goal after his back pass beats Carl Ikeme after Mbia superb turn turns Cameroon defence into attack.

33 – Mbia fouls Emenike and the Cameroon skipper is booked. It was a stud-showing tackle by Mbia

32 – Igbonu shoots at goal but it’s an easy save for the young Cameroon goalie

31 – Cameroon win a corner, which is not connected well and goal kick to Nigeria

30 – Half an hour played and Moses Simon has roasted Kombi on the left flank with his blistering pace

28 – There is not much to choose between the two teams but Nigeria have enjoyed the better chances

26 – The pace of Nigeria is a big concern to the big Cameroon defenders, Moses Simon is really flying on the left flank for the Eagles

24 – Nigeria get forward again but Cameroon again clear their lines. There is a very competitive edge to this game, this has to do with the age-long rivalry between the two teams

22 – Emenike shoots at goal but Ondoa dives down to get a hand to his goal-bound effort. It’s Nigeria’s second big attempt at goal, but it still remains scoreless thus far

21 – Bassong is held back by Ahmed Musa, who is booked for the foul

20 – It remains Nigeria 0 Cameroon 0

16 – At the other end of the pitch, Igbonu tries to dash the opponents’ defence and he is outmuscled. Game is held up to attend to injured Cameroon goalkeeper

15 – Cameroon open up the Nigeria defence but the attack breaks down to the relief of the Eagles

14 – Moses Simon then dashes into the Cameroon box, but the Lions defence do well to clear the danger

13 – Moments later Igbonu is fouled and Nigeria earn another free kick just outside the Cameroon goal area. The wall does it job

12 – Emenike fouled, Nigeria free kick

11 – Skipper Mbia’s long ball from midfield is too long for striker Vincent Aboubakar

9 – Nigeria come close, but the Cameroon goalkeeper dives down to stop a menacing ball heading for goal from the near post

6 – Foul by Elderson, free kick to Cameroon in a good position , but Nigeria defence repel this attack

4 – Desperate defensive clearance by Nigeria rightback Shehu Abdullahi, throw-in for Cameroon deep inside the Nigeria half, but nothing comes out of this move
