Home   /   Cameroon and Serbia divide points in a thrilling game

Group G remains unresolved as Cameroon and Serbia got a point each in an electrifying 3-3 draw at the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah.

Serbia began the first half-time pressing, and Aleksandar Mitrović was all over the pitch. The forward created chance after chance, especially in the first fifteen minutes: he made a great effort for a header after a right cross from Lukić; and even hit the post couple of minutes later.  

Cameroon’s first chance came around the 20th minute when Kunde managed to sneak past the Serbia defence. Surprisingly, shortly after that Cameroon got the first goal in the game!

Jean-Charles Castelleto tapped it in from a very close range after a corner was flicked on towards one of the posts. It is Castelleto’s first goal for his country. 

Serbia finally ‘woke up’ in the added time of 6 minutes to the first half, when the Eagles managed to score not one, but two goals: first one a beautiful header by Pavlovic; and second one by Milinković-Savić.  

The second half started very strong for the Serbs, especially after Aleksandar Mitrović finally got his much sought-after goal in the 53rd minute.

However, things turned right around just minutes later when Cameroon scored two quick surprising goals via golden sub Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. 

Cameroon looked almost completely gone from the game, but football can just change in a matter of minutes, and the second half of that game proved exactly that.

Serbia continued pressing; the Indomitabale Lions sought the fourth goal as well; but it all ended even at the Al Janoub. What a game!

All to play for now in the very last games of the group stage…
