Unbeaten leaders Nigeria moved to 10 points from four matches in Group B and if they win at home over Zambia on October 7 it will clinch them a sixth World Cup appearance.
Despite the draw in Yaounde, Nigerians praised the Super Eagles for their efforts as they maintain their spot at the summit of the Group B which has Algeria and Zambia.
Here are some of the tweets:
