Cameroon 1-0 Brazil: Aboubakar’s goal was not enough to send Cameroon through

Vincent Aboubakar headed the winner in stoppage time, but his joy immediately turned to disappointment as he was given a second yellow card for taking his shirt off. 

Cameroon had acquitted themselves well throughout as Bryan Mbuemo brought an outstanding save from Manchester City's Ederson, deputising for Liverpool keeper Alisson. Still, Switzerland's victory over Serbia ended the African team's chances of reaching the last 16. 

With his side having already qualified after their first two games, Brazil coach Tite made ten changes, and Arsenal's Gabriel Martinelli took the chance to impress with a satisfactory performance, which he was thwarted on several occasions by Cameroon keeper DevisEasy. 

The pre-tournament favourites finished top of Group G despite the loss. They now meet South Korea in the knockout phase after their dramatic late win against Portugal saw them edge out Uruguay, who beat Ghana on goals scored.
