Nigeria’s Super Eagles secured a 2-0 victory over Cameroon in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations Round of 16 match.
Nigeria secured a renowned victory over the Indomitable Lions, thanks to the impressive scoring of Ademola Lookman twice in each half.
Victor Osimhen, a complete menace for the Cameroonian defender, provided a pass to Lookman, who, despite his weak finish, managed to pass the line for the first goal.
Later in the game, when Cameroon searched for an equalizer, the Atalanta attacker added the second.
“Celebrating the Super Eagles’ journey to the AFCON quarter-finals – a testament to the power of unity on the football field. This picture shows the genuine happiness we all feel,” Musa wrote on X.
“In the beautiful game, we stand united, transcending tribe and religion. Let this victory be a reminder that our strength lies in coming together.
“Amidst the challenges our nation faces, let’s use the spirit of football to bridge divides and foster harmony.
“It’s time to kick out the negativity, end the unnecessary killings, rivalry, and embrace the love that sports bring.
“Join hands for peace, goals, and a brighter future
