Super Eagles draw in Yaounde earns Carl Ikeme N10m

The Super Eagles in Yaounde during Monday's FIFA 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon secured a N10m donation to Carl Ikeme who has been diagnosed with leukemia.

The Eagles who beat Cameroon 4-0 at home last Friday through Moses Simon took the lead in Yaounde in the opening 45 minutes but it was Cameroon who finished the game the stronger after their spot-kick had made it 1-1.

NFF's premium partner Aiteo Group had made a N10m pledge to Ikeme's cause for every goal scored by the Eagles in Cameroon.

The company wich has significant business interests in oil and gas exploration and production in a tweet confirmed Ikeme will be handed the promised cash reward as he continues his leukemia treatment.

"Every goal the eagles scored in Cameroon was worth N10 million towards @Carl_Ikeme cause whom we wish speedy recovery #SuperCarl."

Nigeria are now close to confirming a place in Russia next summer should they triumph over Zambia in Uyo next in October.
