World Cup qualifier
BT Sport 2, 6pm Monday

Nigeria have qualified for five of the last six World Cups and they could confirm their place in Russia next summer if they claim a win over Cameroon on Monday.

The Super Eagles have taken a firm grip on their qualification group and a victory would be enough to see them through if Algeria and Zambia share the spoils in their clash.

Nigeria have made a commanding start to their campaign, illustrated by the ease with which they beat Hugo Broos's Cameroon at home on Friday.

A 4-0 scoreline did not flatter them and Gernot Rohr's side should have no fears about the quick trip to Yaounde.

Cameroon claimed the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year but have been found wanting against decent opposition in the last few months.

Chile and Germany had few problems seeing them off at the Confederations Cup, where a 1-1 draw with Australia brought little consolation.

Their priority has to be to get back on track while Nigeria look as though they could be one of the strongest of Africa's challengers at next year's football extravaganza.

Chelsea's Victor Moses has been in excellent form for his country and added a goal against the Indomitable Lions to the brace he netted in his previous appearance, a 3-1 home win over Algeria.

Leicester new boy Kelechi Iheanacho will be anxious to secure a starting berth having scored seven goals in his last eight appearances for the national team and with other players also hungry to impress, Rohr's team can build on Friday's victory.
