Cameroon and Serbia engaged in a thrilling 3-3 action in the Group G fixture in the ongoing FIFA World Cup at the Al Janoub Stadium in Qatar.
Cameroon and Serbia engaged in a draw
Cameroon defender Jean-Charles Castelletto put his side ahead by heading the ball into the back of the net from a corner kick in the 29th minute.
Serbia came back from behind as Strahinja Pavlovic scored the equalizer before Sergej Milinkovic-Savic put his side in the lead in the additional minutes of the first half.
Mitrovic, Serbia’s star striker, on the other hand, also came close to scoring thrice in the first half. He was once denied by the post and the second one missed the target by inches. He once again came close to scoring at the stoppage time but his shot was blocked by the Cameroon goalkeeper. Mitrovic got another opportunity at the closing stages of the match, but with plenty of Cameroon bodies around, the forward once again missed the target from inside the box.
In the second half, Aleksandar Mitrovic scored to hand Serbia a 3-1 lead in the 53rd minute. The African nation were trailing 1-3, but Vincent Aboubakar made a great impact after coming in as a substitute in the 55th minute. He scored the second goal for Cameroon, as he chipped over the Serbia keeper in the 63rd minute. Minutes later he setup a beautiful assist for teammate Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who rammed it inside from close range.
