Holders Cameroon were knocked out of the Africa Cup of Nations by Nigeria in a five-goal last-16 thriller.

Goals from Stephane Bahoken and Clinton Njie saw Indomitable Lions of Cameroon lead 2-1 at half-time after Odion Ighalo had put Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead in Alexandria, Egypt.

But two goals in three minutes swung the game back in Nigeria’s favour and set up a quarter-final with either hosts Egypt or South Africa.

Ighalo equalised before the forward set up Alex Iwobi to hit the winner.
