#WorldCup: Vincent Aboubakar’s late winner against Brazil as Cameroon crash out

Vincent Aboubakar’s stoppage-time header earned Cameroon a memorable late win over five-time world champions Brazil, but it wasn’t enough for the African side to claim a place in the last 16 of the World Cup.

Cameroon went into the game knowing they needed to beat Brazil to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the knockouts and they upheld their end of the bargain thanks to their captain Aboubakar, who was sent off for his celebrations in the wake of his late winner.

However, Switzerland’s win over Serbia meant Cameroon were unable to make up enough ground in Group G to make the next round, regardless of their result over Brazil.

The South Americans held onto top spot in the group thanks to a superior goal difference over Switzerland, meaning they will face South Korea for a place in the quarter-finals on Monday evening.
