Cameroon vs Serbia

Cameroon and Serbia draw 3-3 in the Best World Cup Match So Far

Cameroon and Serbia played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in the first World Cup game of Monday, probably the most entertaining match of the tournament so far.

As reported by Marca, both sides led and both sides trailed at different points of the match, and they both went for it, aware that they needed points after losing their respective openers.

Although Serbia started better, with Aleksandar Mitrovic missing three early chances, smashing one of them off the post, it was the African side who took the lead when Jean-Charles Castelletto was able to turn the ball in just before the half hour mark.

Serbia, though, managed to score two goals in first half stoppage time to completely turn the game around, with Strahinja Pavlovic able to head in at a set piece, before Sergej Milinkovic-Savic fired in a bouncing shot just a couple of minutes later.

It remained an entertaining game in the second half, with Serbia having a couple early forays forward flagged for offside, before Mitrovic finished off a nice passing move, being well set up by Andrija Zivkovic.

Cameroon looked lost, but they managed to equalise by twice beating Serbia’s offside trap.

With the first goal, in the 63rd minute, Vincent Aboubakar seemed to think he was offside even though the flag stayed down and tried an audacious chip that went in, then sparking delight when VAR confirmed that the he had just managed to stay ahead of the last defender.

Moments later, Cameroon scored another similar goal as Serbia didn’t learn their lesson, again allowing an opposition striker to stay onside, this time Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, with the Bayern Munich man finishing well.

Both teams went for the win in the final moments, adding further entertainment, but there were to be no more goals.
