World Cup 2022: Cameroon 3-3 Serbia – Indomitable Lions fight back

Cameroon kept their hopes of reaching the World Cup in the last 16 alive after pulling back two goals to seal a six-goal thriller against Serbia in Group G.

Cameroon took the lead through Jean-Charles Castelletto, but Strahinja Pavlovic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic responded to give Serbia a half-time lead.

Aleksandar Mitrovic added a third for Serbia and they looked set for a win that would have put them in a strong position to progress.

But the irrepressible Lions roared back thanks to Vincent Aboubakar’s superb strike and Eric Maxim Choup-Moting’s equalizer three minutes later.

Mitrovic pulled the ball home in the dying moments after being cleared by Dusan Tadic.

Both teams lost their opening games, leaving them two points behind Brazil and Switzerland, who meet later on Monday (16:00 GMT).

In what was arguably the most entertaining game of the tournament so far, Serbia got off to a bright start with Mitrovic twice coming close to leading the team. The Fulham striker hit the post and made a lightning save after the ball fell kindly to him in the box.

Cameroon took the lead before the break when Nicolas N’Koulou flicked in a corner and Castelletto headed home his first goal from close range.

However, Serbia did not panic and turned the game around in the first half.

Pavlovic scored Serbia’s first World Cup goal 335 minutes into the game before Milinkovic-Savic beat Cameroon goalkeeper Devis Epassy, ​​who was playing after Andre Onana was sent off for disciplinary reasons.

Still to follow.
