In the 20th minute, Kelechi Iheanacho made an attempt to break Cameroon's defence line but he met resistance from two defenders who ensure the ball went out of play.

In the 36th minute, Nigeria's Moses Simon was set up brilliantly by Alex Iwobi who had driven from the right flank into the middle of the pitch before releasing the ball to the Nantes winger who then cuts in before aiming for goal but the goalkeeper was able to send the ball out of play.

And against the run of play, the Indomitable Lions opened the scoring in the 37th minute through André-Frank Zambo Anguissa who released a low but powerful shot from about 25 yards leaving Maduka Okoye hapless in goal. 1-0 Cameroon.
