2018 FIFA WC Qualifier: Cameroon hold Nigeria 1-1 in Group B match

Yaounde, Cameroon (PANA) - Cameroon on Monday held Nigeria to a 1-1 draw in their Group B Day 4 match of the 2018 FIFA qualifying match in Yaounde.

Moses Simon put Nigeria in the lead in the 30th minute before Cameroon equalised from the penalty spot in the 75th minute through Vincent Aboubakar.

The result means Nigeria have 10 points from 4 matches while Cameroon have 3. But Nigeria can still seal their place in the finals of the World Cup in Russia should Algeria, who are at the bottom with only 1 point, beat Zambia in their Day 4 match on Tuesday.

But the result also means Cameroon are out of contention. Only the winner of each of the five groups qualifies for Russia 2018.
