Sunday Oliseh gets a boost as Nigeria impress in rout over Cameroon

John Obi Mikel impressed during Nigeria's 3-0 win against Cameroon on Sunday.

Sunday Oliseh and his Super Eagles responded to their 2-0 defeat by Congo in the best possible way, hammering arch rivals Cameroon 3-0 on Sunday.

This was not just about the scoreline but the smoothness of the performance, the control and the tempo. With slightly better finishing, this could have been even uglier for the Indomitable Lions.

Here are a few observations from the game ...

Oliseh gets timing right

An African heads up FIFA, while Nigeria endure a nightmare

Issa Hayatou has taken over the interim presidency despite concerns from various change campaigners.

For the first time in FIFA's 111-year history, the man at the helm is an African. But this landmark appointment did not come in the way most on the continent would have wanted it to. Issa Hayatou, the CAF President, is an appointment that is temporary and the Cameroonian is a controversial figure which will cause some consternation over his ascendancy. On the field, World Cup qualifiers got underway, the CAF club competitions have reached their climax and Nigeria have woken up to a new nightmare....

South Sudan making strides and dreaming of a place at the World Cup

For South Sudan, their World Cup qualifiers are far more than just a football match.
For South Sudan, their World Cup qualifiers are far more than just a football match.

When Richard Justin Lado was born, South Sudan, the country he captains in international football, did not exist. It did not exist when midfielder Adnan Nan was born, when goalkeeper Roy Gulwak was born or even when the youngest member of the current South Sudan team, 20-year-old Friday Zico was born.

South Sudan only became a country in 2011. A year later, it became a FIFA member and four years later, even as the civil war rages on, South Sudan are beginning a journey which they hope will end at...

Toure's future and continental cups highlight football's headlines in Africa

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno discuss what Manchester City's comeback win means for both their UEFA Champions League and Premier League campaigns.

Africa's club competitions continue to capture attention as two teams from the same country in each tournament are struggling to make it into the final, but there was also some international news. Some of the continents' lesser lights made impressive progress in the FIFA rankings and Africa's second-ranked team could be preparing for the end of an era for one of their greatest players.

Sudanese swansong?

Sudan's Al-Hilal and Al-Merreikh have a lot to do to ensure their country is represented...

Zamalek conceded five goals in a match for the first time since 2005.
Zamalek conceded five goals in a match for the first time since 2005.

It's not often that a second-tier cup competition eclipses it's more glamorous counterpart, but that is exactly what happened in Africa last weekend. The first leg of the semifinals of both the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup were played and the results of the former -- 2-1 victories for Al-Merrikh and USM Alger over TP Mazembe and Al-Hilal, respectively -- were forgotten in the aftermath of one of the outcomes in the latter.

CAF Confederation Cup favourites Zamalek were thrashed...
