Cameroon VS Togo 2014
Welcome to the LIVE Coverage of at the Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha, Brasilia
It has been an impressive half so far, both teams loaded us with beautiful football and amazing skill sequences, and especially 3 goals. It was Neymar who opened the score at the 17th minute, before Nyom equalizes 9 minutes later.
Neymar again came in with a brilliant individual effort and placed the ball in a hard corner, hard enough that it was impossible for the keeper to save it.
In the second half, Fred and Fernandinho added 2 goals, offering a comfortable lead for the Samba Dancers, which allowed them to qualify leading the group A, and consequently face Chile in the next round.
Cameroon is the first African team to leave the World Cup, and the only one for now, as the other teams representing Africa have all their chances between their hands, as Algeria, Nigeria and Ivory Coast all needs only a draw to qualify, while the black Stars of Ghana need a win in the Group of death.

The pair have gone toe-to-toe on four previous occasions and Brazil have the edge historically with three wins to Cameroon’s one. However, Cameroon won the last encounter, in the Confederations Cup 2003 when a Samuel Eto’o strike sealed a 1-0 victory.
The first meeting between the sides took place in the 1994 World Cup and resulted in a convincing 3-0 win to Brazil, who netted through Romario, Marcio Santos and Bebeto.
This is the 100th World Cup match played by Brazil, who are the second side to reach this milestone following Germany. The South Americans’ maiden match ended in a 2-1 loss to Yugoslavia on 14 July 1930.
This is Cameroon’s first showdown against a host team in the World Cup.
