Cameroon vs. Brazil Highlights

Cameroon 1, Brazil 0

6′: Early yellow card

A yellow card was given to Cameroon defender Nouhou Tolo after a messy collision with Brazil forward Antony Santos.

14′: Big save

Brazil looked poised to score the first goal of the game before Cameroon goalkeeper Devis Epassy rerouted forward Gabriel Martinelli‘s close-up header.

32′: Can’t do that

Cameroon defender Collins Fai was given a yellow card for tripping Brazil forward Rodrygo.

45+3′: Almost

Cameroon struggled to get shots on goal in the first half but had a golden opportunity before halftime to strike. However, Bryan Mbeumo‘s header was deflected off a bounce by Ederson, Brazil’s goalkeeper.

Ederson makes an incredible save on a Cameroon shot to keep Brazil at 0-0 with Cameroon

56′: The Epassy show

The Cameroon goalkeeper is having himself a game. Epassy’s latest highlight-reel save came when he deflected Martinelli’s shot above the net.

60′: Get that out of here!

Brazil defender Dani Alves knocked the ball out of harm’s way in emphatic fashion.

84′: A game of missed shots

Both Cameroon and Brazil missed their fair share of shots. This time around, Brazil midfielder Bruno Guimaraes had his shot attempt hook slightly to the left.

90+2′: GOAL!

Vincent Aboubakar punched in a header in the closing moments to give Cameroon the lead. He then took his jersey off and celebrated …

 … and was given his second yellow card for doing so. 

Cameroon won 1-0.

Setting the stage

Brazil already qualified for the knockout stages and was guaranteed to top the group with a win or tie against Cameroon, or if Switzerland didn’t beat Serbia. If Brazil lost and Switzerland won, the group winner would’ve been decided by goal difference and subsequent tiebreakers if necessary.

Cameroon would’ve been eliminated if Switzerland beat Serbia. It could’ve qualified with a win against Brazil if Switzerland/Serbia tied or if Serbia won, but only if it won a tiebreaker.

Well wishes
