A mountain full of emotions: Serbia and Cameroon give us the best match of the 2022 World Cup | CHRONICLE

In the previous one, the confrontation between Serbian vs. Cameroon It gave the impression of being a very close game. This is due to the impression that both squads left in their presentation for the World Cup Qatar 2022. However, the opposite ended up happening and they gave us a match that could easily be ranked among the best in the history of the world championship. Six goals and emotions from start to finish are the best description of this match.

The first to hit were the Africans. In the 29th minute, Nicolas N’Koulou flicked in a cross from a corner that ended up finding Jean-Charles Castelletto, who entered just behind the Balkan defense. Until then, the ‘African Lions’ seemed to have controlled the game and the result. Something they could only sustain until the end of the first half.

When added time was played, Serbia turned the score around in just 148 seconds. Dragan Stojkovic (45 +1 ‘) matched the actions with a superb header that left goalkeeper Devis Epassy without reaction. Two minutes later, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic received a serve on the edge of the area and unleashed a left-footed shot that ended up netting. With these two goals, Dragan Stojkovic’s cast became the first team to score two goals in first half discounts.

After an excellent collective move, Aleksandar Mitrovic just pushed the ball and widened the difference for the Serbs. But the goal from the Fulham attacker did not end the contest. With the entry of Vincent Aboubakar (55′), Cameroon ended up finding the light at the end of the tunnel. The man from Al Nasr Riyadh, with only eight minutes on the field, scored the tie after an exquisite definition.

At 66′, the ’10’ was transcendental again. Based on his speed and power, he dropped down the right sector and ended up giving the ball to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. The Cameroonian star from Bayern Munich just had to push her and put things even in 151 seconds. The next half hour of play was unable to find a winner and the end of the matchup was whistled. A result that left a bitter taste in both teams

A nightmare that doesn’t end

The tie meant Cameroon’s ninth game without being able to win in World Cups. It reached its worst record and is getting closer to Tunisia. The red team could not add the three points during 13 matches, from Argentina 1978 and Russia 2018. Very little was left of that Cameroonian team that knew how to make history in Italy 90 reaching the quarterfinals.

Of course, the three goals scored at the Al Janoub stadium are they cut the losing streak (8) that the Africans had since Japan-Korea 2022. One of those who was present at seven of those presentations was Nicolas N’Koulou. The Aris Thessaloniki defender was left with a consolation prize and finally did not leave a World Cup game empty-handed.
