Cameroon is the first African team who has sealed a famous 1-0 win over Brazil at the World Cup.

Vincent Aboubakar’s powerful header was historic for Cameroon and Africa at the World Cup.

After a stalemate of 90 minutes, Aboubacker scored for Cameroon in added time and got sent off after getting a second yellow card for taking his shirt off.

“I didn’t even realize that this was such a historic victory,” Cameroon coach Rigobert Song said. “We are one of the African countries that played the most World Cups, and now we’ve beaten Brazil.”

Brazil had won its previous seven matches against African opponents at the World Cup.

The AFCON nation however, failed to make it to the Round of 16 on the account of Switzerland beating Serbia 3-2.

Brazil, which had already reached the knockout stage after victories over Serbia and Switzerland, still finished first in Group H.

It ended with six points, the same as Switzerland, but the South Americans had a better goal difference. Cameroon ended with four points and Serbia had one.
