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.

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.
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.
