Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has thanked Nigerian fans for supporting and inspiring the Eagles to a 3-0 victory against Cameroon on Sunday.

Oliseh said he dedicate the victory over Cameroon to the fans who showed their support in spite of all the setbacks.

The Eagles bounced back from Thursday’s loss to DR Congo to trounce fierce rival Cameroon, despite the highly publicised row between Oliseh and former Eagles’ Captain, Vincent Enyeama.

The ugly spat led to accusations and counter-accusations from both men and Enyeama retired from international football as a result.

Oliseh wrote on his Twitter handle on Monday: “I dedicate this scintillating victory of the Super Eagles over Cameroon to all ‘true’ Naija fans who irrespective of all the lies believed.”

Goals from Efe Ambrose, Moses Simon and Odion Ighalo sealed the win for the Eagles.

It was Oliseh’s second win since taking charge of the team after defeating Niger Republic in another friendly game.

The Eagles, who are second in their 2017 Cup of Nations qualifying group, will take on leaders Egypt in March next year.
