Cameroon and Serbia played out a mental two minutes in their Group G clash the World Cup this morning.

From the 63rd to the 66th minute we were treated to an offside goal, a ridiculous dink, an overturned decision, some dodgy defending, and a two goal comeback.

Cameroon had initially taken the lead against the run of play in the first-half, through Jean-Charles Castelletto, before Serbia managed to take a deserved 2-1 lead into half-time.

The Europeans looked very comfortable, and they gave themselves a two goal cushion when Aleksander Mitrovic finished off a beautiful passing move after 53 minutes.

Cameroon substitute Vincent Aboubakar came onto the field two minutes later and completely changed the trajectory of the match.

In the 63rd minute he found himself clear through on goal before scooping the ball over the keeper, only to see the linesman's flag up for offside. However, shortly after, the goal was given as it deemed he was kept onside be a Serbian defender.

Just two minutes late, the high-line from Serbia failed a second time as Aboubakar was once again put through on goal in acres of space.


This time he squared it to Choupo-Moting for an easy finish.

Kenny Cunningham ripped into Serbia's defending for the two goals, labelling it as 'outrageous', and 'suicidal.'


"The game got really stretched and open, and I thought if they're not careful this could go four to five very quickly.

"The Serbian's practically committed harakiri at the back defensively. Some outrageous decisions were have cost them. They'll be absolutely fuming, I'll be surprised if there's literally not fist fights in that Serbian dressing room after the game, because they've given it away.

"Credit to Cameroon. Great spirit, great spirit. They've given it up. The two goals they gave up, presented to them like Christmas.


"Christmas in a few weeks. They boxed it up and put a red ribbon on it and handed it to the Cameroon players."
