Course of the Match

Serbia took the initiative to dominate the game after kickoff. Almost a goal created in the 10th minute!

In collaboration with Dusan Tadic, Aleksandar Mitrovic controlled the ball on the right side in the penalty box. He rounded one player and curled in a left-footed shot. The ball goes through the goalkeeper's reach, but hits the goalpost and returns to the field of play!

Serbia wasted another good chance in the 17th minute. The Cameroon defender's attempt to sweep the ball hit his own teammate, then the wild ball also failed to be controlled by Nouhou Tolo. Mitrovic snatched it and just ended up on the left side of the goal.

Cameroon threatened back two minutes later. Pierre Kunde's shot was kept out by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

GOAL! Cameroon actually took the lead in the 29th minute, amid Serbia's domination. From a corner kick on the left side, Tolo's gastric bait turned after being headed by his partner and fell at the far post to be struck by Jean-Charles Castelletto.

Serbia returned to build pressure. Tadic's shot from the edge of the box went over.

Chance for Cameroon in the 43rd minute! Kunde took control of the ball from Serbia and pushed forward alone. But his shot was easily driven away by the goalkeeper, then the second chance to grab the ball rebounded off the mark.

GOAL! Serbia replied from a free kick situation in the first minute of injury time. Tadic's gastric bait was headed by Strahinja Pavlovic who escaped control.

GOAL! Serbia turned ahead 2-1 two minutes later! Serbia took possession from Cameroon and Andrija Zivkovic found Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who then finished with a low strike into the bottom right corner of the net.

Serbia almost added another goal in the fifth minute of injury time. However, Mitrovic's shot hit a player and ended narrowly on the right side of the goal. The first round is over.

Serbia opened the second half quickly. Two attempts to attack in the 49th and 50th minute were stopped due to offside.

Goal! Serbia widened the difference in the 53rd minute. Building attacks neatly, Zivkovic pushed forward and passed to Mitrovic who freely cheated the ball into the goal which was wide open.

Cameroon hit back in the 64th minute! Vincent Aboubakar got through and was left to face the goalkeeper, then cleverly chipped the ball over the advancing Vanja Milinkovic-Savic. He was considered offside, but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) confirmed that Aboubakar's goal was valid.

GOAL! Cameroon leveled the score two minutes later. Aboubakar again escaped the Serbian offside trap and this time he found Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. Choupo-Moting finished with a light kick into the net.

Serbia threatened Cameroon in the 76th minute when Mitrovic slipped down the right and fired in a shot that kept keeper Devis Epassy out. Another effort from Sergej Milinkovic-Savic two minutes later still went over.

Aboubakar's long-range shot in the 87th minute was still muffled by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

Serbia responded in the 89th minute, building an attack from the right, the cross was received by Tadic and forwarded to Mitrovic. His shot went wide to the right of the goal. The game ended without any changes in the score again.
