8th Finals


That's all from us, we hope you enjoyed the game. We'll see you next time, as the knockout stages begin!
That's the 2022 World Cup groups done and dusted in Qatar, with the Group G finale drawing this stage to a close! Brazil advance as group winners despite their loss here, and they'll be joined by Switzerland in the last 16, whose 3-2 win over Serbia was enough to seal their passage to the knockouts. Cameroon's late win will live long in the memory, and having their fate taken out of their hands by Switzerland, couldn't be a better way to end their World Cup campaign.
Aboubakar's late header may have seen him get sent off amidst the celebrations, but also sealed his country's first-ever win over Brazil. The Al Nassr striker had three shots from inside the box, scoring with the only one on target. He also completed four final third entries and four passes in that area, creating a good chance for Mbeumo with one. Aboubakar won two of four aerial duels he took on, as well winning and conceding two free-kicks apeice, and clearing the ball four times to help out his defence.
It's all over, as Cameroon seal a famous win over Brazil that ultimately comes in vain. Vincent Aboubakar's late header caused pandemonium, as Cameroon snatched a win in a game which was largely dominated by Brazil. The Selecao peppered Epassy's goal at times, but their finishing let them down, and Brazil couldn't finish their group stage campaign with a flourish. They'll still top Group G though, despite Switzerland's 3-2 win over Serbia, but that result spells the end of Cameroon's tournament, who needed the Swiss to draw or lose in order to progress at their expense.
90' + 9' Another cross from the right-hand side is put back into the danger area by Marquinhos. It's chested down by Martinelli for Guimaraes, but his first-time shot flies over the crossbar!
90' + 8' Alves' cross from the right is headed back across goal by Marquinhos, but the ball comes too quickly for Martinelli to anticipate and he sends his rising header over the bar!
90' + 7' SAVED!!! Marquinhos overlaps down the left to link up with Martinelli, and crosses into the box. Guimaraes meets it with a good header back across goal, but Epassy does well to stop and hold it!
90' + 6' Martinelli ducks and weaves his way inside again before crossing to the centre, but Pedro's glancing header flies just wide of the far post.
90' + 5' Aboubakar is only the third African player to score against Brazil in the World Cup, after Didier Drogba in 2010 and Joel Matip, for Cameroon, in 2014.
90' + 3' Aboubakar's joy saw him take his shirt off as he celebrated, but as he'd already been booked, picks up a second yellow card and is sent off!
J. Mbekeli
90' + 2' What a run, and what a ball from Ngom Mbekeli, who put that on an absolute plate for Aboubakar to finish expertly!
V. Aboubakar
90' + 2' GOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!!!! Cameroon score, and Brazil are shocked!!!!!!!! Ngom Mbekeli bursts down the right wing and fires an absolute peach of a cross into the box, and Aboubakar ghosts between the two centre-backs to notch a lovely cushioned header beyond Ederson and into the bottom corner!!! Cameroon lead 1-0, and if Serbia can equalise against Switzerland, they will go through to the last 16!
90' + 1' We'll play an additional NINE minutes of added time, and that's plenty for a Brazil side of this quality to find a late winner!
90' Martinelli takes on his marker and cuts the ball back from the left, but Wooh once again gets a crucial touch to block it behind for another Brazil corner.
89' OVER!!! Alves finds Raphinha in the box, who passes to Pedro in space. He's in far more open space than he thinks he is, as he quickly turns and fires a snap-shot well wide of the target!
87' Raphinha's inside ball comes to nothing but Brazil spread it left to Martinelli. He crosses inside to find Guimaraes arriving late, but a poor first touch sends the ball rolling into Epassy's grasp.
J. Mbekeli
N. Moumi Ngamaleu
86' Ngamaleu's flick will be his last contribution, as the Cameroon winger comes off for Jerome Ngom Mbekeli.
Bruno Guimarães
Yellow Card
85' Brazil's corner comes to nothing and Ngamaleu flicks the ball over Guimaraes' head as he looks to spark a counter-attack. He's dragged back by the Brazil substitute though, and Guimaraes receives a booking for the needless foul.
84' CHANCE!!! Raphinha darts down the right and beats two before crossing from the byline. Guimaraes arrives, but Wooh gets the crucial touch to skew the ball away for a corner!
82' Last time out against Serbia, Aboubakar became the first substitute to both score and assist a goal in a World Cup match for an African nation. His goal involvements pulled Cameroon from 3-1 down to 3-3 just 11 minutes after he'd come off the bench.
V. Aboubakar
Yellow Card
81' Another corner is cleared, and Martinelli races away on the counter for Brazil. Aboubakar chases hard, but knows he can't keep pace with the Arsenal wideman so brings him down with a rugby-esque tackle, conceding a free-kick and picking up a yellow card to boot!
80' BLOCKED!!! After a Cameroon corner is half-cleared, Aboubakar picks up the ball on the edge of the box. He looks to curl a shot into the top corner, but an Alves block sends it behind for another corner!
79' Antony comes off in Brazil's final change, with Raphinha replacing the winger in a like-for-like alteration.
78' SAVED!!! Toko Ekambi beats Alves before squaring inside to Ntcham. He hits a decent effort from 20 yards, which is driven low and into the gloves of Ederson, who dives low to his right to keep it out!
77' There's a good chance the Cameroon players have no knowledge of Switzerland's 3-2 lead over Serbia, meaning they're out regardless of this result as things stand. When they get the ball, the Indomitable Lions are trying to create chances, but that's made or the more difficult by Brazil's superbly organised defence, and their inane ability to keep the ball regardless of pressure.
75' Dani Alves has certainly put a shift in against Cameroon, with his four successful tackles the highest number by a Brazilian player so far this tournament. He's also made two clearances and an interception, as well as winning possession six times and being successful in nine duels. The 39-year-old has also completed more touches than anyone with 70, and has contested a game-high 17 duels. Expert.
73' Fai loses out on his own back line as Brazil win it back. Martinelli tees up Guimaraes on the edge of the area, but the substitute snatches at his shot and sends it skywards!
72' Some intricate play between Ribiero, Antony and Pedro sees the latter thread a first-time ball into the inside-right channel, but Antony can't get there and the chance to cross back in goes begging.
71' Pedro wins a free-kick on halfway, which is again taken quickly by Guimaraes. He advances and finds Pedro in the box, but Fai gets across to win possession and clear for Cameroon.
70' Brazil have kept a clean sheet in five of their last six World Cup matches, failing only in their 2-1 quarter-final defeat to Belgium in 2018. They’d only kept four clean sheets in their previous 16 games before this run.
O. Ntcham
P. Kunde
68' The booked Kunde is next off for Cameroon, and Swansea midfielder Olivier Ntcham will replace him.
67' Ribiero picks up the ball on the front foot and steps beyond Tolo to race into the box. He has shooting space, but Tolo recovers to slide across and win the ball with a superb piece of defending!
65' Marquinhos makes a good run forward from the back and links up with Ribiero. He surges into the box for the return ball, but the pass is too heavy and rolls behind for a Cameroon goal kick.
Gabriel Jesus
64' Jesus hasn't had the threat in front of goal that his fellow forwards have possessed, and comes off now for Flamengo striker Pedro to see out the game.
K. Toko Ekambi
B. Mbeumo
64' Mbeumo comes off in Cameroon's first change, and Lyon forward Karl Toko-Ekambi will replace him.
62' 53.5 per cent of all the action has been in Brazil's attacking third over the last 15 minutes.
61' Antony shows brilliant skill to turn out of several challenges on the edge of the box. There's at least one foul in there, but Brazil keep the ball so the referee plays advantage, only for Fabinho to send his resultant cross straight onto the head of Wooh.
60' Another Brazil corner is swung in, and Epassy dives for the ball, but misses it completely before colliding with his left post. He's injured inside the goalmouth as play continues, but it's quickly brought to a stop by the referee for Epassy to receive treatment.
58' SAVED!!! Brazil take a quick free-kick and Guimaraes races forward before switching play to the right. Antony has it, and shoots from the edge of the box, with Epassy diving across to tip his effort wide of the post!
57' OFF THE POST!!! The initial corner is headed away, but Ribiero returns down the right-hand byline before pulling the ball back to Militao. He takes a touch before shooting, and Epassy spills the shot before tipping the rebound from Militao onto the post and out!
56' SAVED!!! Brazil counter at speed and the ball comes to Martinelli surging down the left. He heads for the box and engages his marker, before firing a good effort which is tipped over by the goalkeeper at full stretch!
Bruno Guimarães
55' Fred is the third Brazilian withdrawn by Tite, and Bruno Guimaraes will come into midfield.
Éverton Ribeiro
55' Rodrygo also comes off following another positive performance, and the Real Madrid forward is replaced by Everton Ribiero.
Alex Telles
54' Alex Telles can't shake off his injury and trudges off the pitch, with Marquinhos coming on to replace him for the Selecao.
54' Aboubakar runs out of room down the left and passes back to Kunde. With few options, the midfielder shoots, but sends his effort from 35 yards miles over the crossbar and into the stands!
53' CHANCE!! Jesus controls a long ball well to link up with Rodrygo. He gives it back to the Arsenal striker, who snatches at a shot on the turn, and the ball bobbles everywhere via a series of deflections before Epassy eventually gathers it!
51' WIDE!!! Anguissa's cross from the left byline is aimed towards Aboubakar, who is beaten in the air by Militao. The ball drops to Mbeumo, who again finds Aboubakar on the right-hand side, and his well-struck effort flies across the face of goal and wide of the far post!
49' There's a big collision in the box between Telles and Anguissa, with the Brazil left-back coming off worse. He's eventually helped to his feet, as Alex Sandro warms up on the touchline.
47' Mbeumo races down the right-hand side and escapes Telles to cross into the box. Bremer gets in the way of his ball though, putting it behind for an early Cameroon corner.
46' Choupo-Moting kicks off the second period, and we're back underway at the Lusail Iconic Stadium!
The two sides return for the second half, and can Brazil make their quality count to make it three wins from three in Group G?
Martinelli has had the freedom of Lusail down that left-hand side, cutting inside at will and testing the goalkeeper with both of his efforts on goal. He's had four touches in the box, as well as completing eight passes in the final third. All three of his dribbles have been successful, as have three of his four duels, and the Arsenal winger has also won possession twice. Promise.
The first-half ends, with no goals scored but a handful of chances at both ends! It looked likely to be one-way traffic early on, as constant runs in behind by the Brazilians saw Cameroon pick up three booking within the first half hour. Since then though, the Indomitable Lions have improved their discipline, and despite Martinelli and Rodrygo both testing Epassy in goal, have defended well. They almost had a goal of their own too, with Mbeumo's late header brilliantly stopped by Ederson, as Brazil were forced into making their first save of the entire tournament!
45' + 3' SAVED!!! What a stop from Ederson!!! Ngamaleu crosses from the left and Mbeumo heads back across goal, and the first shot on target Brazil have conceded all World Cup is tipped away by the goalkeeper!
45' + 2' WIDE!!! Antony plays the corner low into the box, and Rodrygo races to the front post to curl a shot towards goal, but finds only the side netting!
45' + 1' SAVED!!! Martinelli cuts inside once again, beating three on the edge of the box before smashing an effort goalwards, which is tipped over by Epassy, who was planted to the spot!
45' We'll play an additional four minutes of added time to close out this rather uneventful first half.
43' Ederson races out of his box to win possession for Brazil, and spark the Selecao into a counter attack. Rodrygo glides forward once again before looking to thread a ball through for Antony, but the pass rolls into the gloves of Epassy before the winger can get there.
41' Aboubakar drops deep to link up with his midfield, and gets the ball back from Aboubakar before floating a cross into the box. Mbeumo chases and tries a volley, but Bremer is back there to head the ball into Ederson's gloves.
39' Brazil are unbeaten in their last 17 World Cup group stage matches, a tournament record. They are looking to win all three of their group matches at a single edition for the first time since 2006.
38' SAVED!!! Martinelli drifts in-field and surges through midfield. He's brought down, but Fred picks up the ball and the referee plays advantage. Fred feeds Antony, and the Manchester United winger cuts inside before firing a low shot which Epassy gets down well to hold!
36' Brazil are yet to face a single shot on target at the 2022 World Cup, the first team to not face a shot on target in their first two games at a tournament since France in 1998, who of course went on to win that edition. The fewest shots on target faced by a team in a group stage since 1966 is two by Argentina in 1998.
34' OVER!!! Dani Alves steps up, and the right-back almost marks his 125th Brazil cap with a goal, but sends a floating shot over both the wall and the crossbar!
C. Fai
Yellow Card
32' Rodrygo bursts into space once more and darts towards the box, but he's brought down right on the edge, this time by Fai, who is also booked as Brazil prepare another free-kick within shooting range.
30' Rodrygo steps up to take the free-kick he won, but can only send his free-kick into the wall!
29' Aleksandar Mitrovic has equalised for Serbia in Doha, meaning the table reverts to how it looked when play began, and Cameroon once again have a chance at qualification for the knockouts!
P. Kunde
Yellow Card
28' Rodrygo turns his marker on halfway and sets off for goal, slaloming through the defence before being brought down for behind by Kunde, who concedes a free-kick right on the edge of his own box, as well as picking up a yellow card!
27' Brazil have won five of their six meetings with Cameroon in all competitions, most recently a 1-0 friendly win in November 2018. Brazil have won both previous World Cup games between the sides, 3-0 in 1994 and 4-1 in 2014.
25' CHANCE!!! Martinelli bursts past Fai down the left and races into the area. He cuts the ball back for Jesus, but his first-time shot is blocked by Ebosse!
24' Bad news for Cameroon, as it's announced Switzerland have opened the scoring in their corresponding match against Serbia. As it stands, the Swiss are through regardless of the result in this game, and the Cameroonians will be hoping for a Serbian fightback to give them a chance of qualification!
22' Martinelli passes back to Telles, who whips in a first-time cross. Jesus can't control it, but Fred can, who brings the ball down and fires a volley on the turn which flies over the crossbar!
20' SAVED!!! Back come Cameroon as Choupo-Moting frees up Tolo to burst down the left. He whips in a wicked cross for Aboubakar in the centre, but Ederson dives across to parry the ball away from the goalmouth!
20' CHANCE!!! Choupo-Moting drives forward and beats three defenders on his way into the box. He turns and looks to shoot, but Militao recovers to hook it away for Brazil!
18' Brazil had 70.6 per cent possession over the opening 15 minutes of this game.
16' Martinelli comes straight back at Cameroon as he bursts down the left wing before hooking the ball back to the edge of the box. It's a good ball too, but the bounce evades both Fred and Antony, allowing Ebosse to clear!
14' SAVED!!! Fred floats a cross into the sparsely populated Cameroon box, and Martinelli arrives to head goalwards from the far post. It's a great header, and the effort is heading in, but it's tipped over the bar thanks to a great save from Epassy!
13' Having kept a clean sheet in three of their first four World Cup games, Cameroon have kept just one in their subsequent 21 matches in the competition, conceding 46 goals. However, their 3-3 draw with Serbia last time out was the first time they've ever scored three goals in a single World Cup match.
11' Jesus links up with Antony on the right, who tees up Fabinho to cross, but the ball into the box is headed away by a strong header from Wooh.
9' A defeat or draw for Cameroon will see them eliminated from the group stages of the World Cup in their sixth successive appearance at the finals, last reaching the knockout rounds in 1990. They've never won their final group stage game in seven previous appearances at the World Cup.
Éder Militão
Yellow Card
7' A poor pass forward from Militao is cut out by Anguissa, and Ngamaleu latches onto the ball. He's barrelled over by Militao, and the Brazil defender picks up his side's first booking of the match.
N. Tolo
Yellow Card
6' Antony again looks to race into space down the right, but he's hacked down from behind in a wild challenge by Tolo, who picks up an early yellow card for his troubles.
4' Brazil have won all seven of their World Cup matches against African sides, scoring 20 goals and conceding just twice.
2' CHANCE!!! Antony beats his man before releasing Rodrygo down the right-hand touchline. He sprints to the byline and cuts the ball back, where Fred arrives late and slides a shot towards goal, but it's blocked and Cameroon clear!
1' Brazil kick off in Lusail, and we're underway in the final round of group stage matches at this World Cup!
The teams head out onto the pitch, and following the respective national anthems, we’ll be underway!
Already through to the knockout stages, Tite makes a whopping nine changes to a Brazil side still oozing with quality. An exciting front three of Antony, Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli will cause Cameroon plenty of problems, while at the back, 39-year-old captain Dani Alves captains the side from the right, pushing Eder Militao into central defence. He and Fred are the only two to keep their places from the 1-0 win over Switzerland.
Cameroon bring in plenty of attacking talent in this final game, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and captain Vincent Aboubakar both starting after their respective quick-fire goals saved the game against Serbia. Bryan Mbeumo will provide plenty of ammunition from the right flank, while Frank Anguissa comes into the base of midfield.
BRAZIL SUBS: Alisson, Weverton, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Casemiro, Lucas Paqueta, Richarlison, Raphinha, Bruno Guimaraes, Vinicius Junior, Everton Ribiero, Pedro.
BRAZIL (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Dani Alves, Eder Militao, Bremer, Alex Telles; Fabinho, Fred; Antony, Rodrygo, Gabriel Martinelli; Gabriel Jesus.
CAMEROON SUBS: Simon Ngapandouetnbu, Jerome Ngom Mbekeli, Gael Ondoua, Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Jean-Pierre Nsame, Christian Bassogog, Karl Toko-Ekambi, Samuel Oum Gouet, Olivier Mbaizo, Olivier Ntcham, Souaibou Marou.
CAMEROON (4-2-3-1): Devis Epassy; Collins Fai, Christopher Wooh, Enzo Ebosse, Nouhou Tolo; Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Pierre Kunde; Bryan Mbeumo, Erix Maxim Choupo-Moting, Mouni Ngamaleu; Vincent Aboubakar.
Brazil’s 1-0 win over Switzerland last time out made it two wins from two for the Selecao, who, aside from a big Swiss win over Serbia, will finish top of the group. Cameroon meanwhile came from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with Serbia in an excellent game in Al Wakrah, scoring twice in three second-half minutes to rescue a point.
Cameroon sit third in a tightly-poised group, from which Brazil have already qualified for the last 16. Cameroon can still join them, but have to beat the tournament favourites in order to do so, and hope that Switzerland either draw or lose to Serbia in their corresponding fixture.
Hello, and welcome to live coverage of this fixture at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, as Cameroon take on Brazil in each side’s final match in Group G.
