10 Men Cameroon Stun Brazil for First World Cup Win

Saturday – Ten-man Cameroon bowed out of the 2022 World Cup with their heads held high after stunning five-time winners Brazil 1-0 in their final Group G match at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

Rigobert Song’s side needed to win and hope for Serbia to take at least a point from their clash with Switzerland to seal a top-two place, but they were on the back foot for large portions of the contest against a second-string Brazil side.

However, Vincent Aboubakar headed home an unexpected winner for the African nation in second-half injury time, but having already been booked, he was immediately sent off after ripping his shirt off in celebration.

Despite holding on for a memorable win, Cameroon’s fate was sealed as Switzerland overcame Serbia 3-2, which eliminated the Indomitable Lions and allowed Brazil to hold on to top spot on goal difference.
