THE BIGGER PICTURE: Aboubakar came on 10 minutes into the second half and that was enough time for him to have a huge influence in this game. After his audacious goal, Aboubakar went on to set up Eric Choupo-Moting for Cameroon's equalizer. To cap a fine day for him, Aboubakar was named Man of the Match despite not playing the better part of the game.
The impressive performance by the Indomitable Lions skipper might convince coach Rigobert Song to start him in their next match. Aboubakar has been coming on as a substitute in their two World Cup games. His combination with Choupo-Moting looks promising and Song might need the two in his lineup the next time around.
WHAT NEXT FOR ABOUBAKAR? Aboubakar will be hoping to be handed his first start of this tournament when Cameroon clash with Brazil in their next game on Friday. It is their last group game and a crucial match in which the Indomitable Lions need a victory to progress to the next round.
