Cameroon and Serbia played out a thrilling 3-3 draw during their Group G clash.
Initially, the Cameroonians took the lead in the 29th minute after a goal from defender Jean-Charles Castelletto.
He is the 1st player to score a FIFA World Cup goal for Cameroon since Liverpool’s Joel Matip in 2014.
But then after goals from Strahinja Pavlovic, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Aleksandar Mitrovic completely turned the game.
In fact, Mitrovic is the 2nd Serbian player to score at two separate World Cup tournaments.
The first one to do so is their current head coach Dragan Stojkovic.
Soon, led by veteran striker Vincent Aboubakar, the African nation turned the game on its head.
Coming on in the 55th minute, Aboubakar scored to reduce the deficit to just one goal in the 63rd minute.
He went on to assist Eric Choupo-Moting's equalising goal as Cameroon completed an exceptional turnaround.
Aboubakar became the first African to score and assist in a FIFA World Cup game since 1966!
