The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon stunned Brazil with a 1-0 victory. A massive win for Cameroon but not enough for them to remain in the tournament as they were eliminated as a result of Switzerland’s win over Serbia.
Goal scorer Aboubakar got sent off after the goal because he took of his shirt forgetting he already had a yellow card before. What a way to exit the World Cup.
Switzerland came clutch with a hard fought 3-2 victory over Serbia to finish second on the Group G table.
Brazil finished top of the group and would face South Korea in the round of 16 stage while Switzerland would slug it out against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.

Goal! Serbia 0-1 Switzerland
Shaqiri scores! It’s 1-0 Switzerland and it’s a fine left-footed strike from the right side of the box, after Serbia fail to properly clear. Against the run of play, but the Swiss fans won’t care. Rodriguez’s run down the left created that, and Shaqiri pounced with the ball pinballing around.

Both Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli are in the XI for Brazil! A whopping nine changes from Tite. Daniel Alves (39 years 210 days) is set to become the oldest player to appear in a World Cup game for Brazil in history.
