Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has hailed his side’s 3-2 win over Cameroon in the Round off 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations.

 

The Shanghai Shenhua man netted a brace, as Nigeria came from behind to defeat the defending champions.

 

 

Ighalo also provided the match-winning assist for Alex Iwobi.

 

“It does not matter if I or anyone score, winning for Nigeria is what matters most, but I will remember these two goals for a long time, I have lived for a tough period of pressure.

 

“We do not want to repeat what happened against Madagascar, we prepared well and did our best.

 

 

“We conceded two goals in a short time, we could collapse, but we tried until we achieved what we wanted,” Ighalo told Goal.

 

The Super Eagles will now face South Africa in the quarter-final on Wednesday, July 10.
