Mexico beat Cameroon through Peralta goal
Although Brazil is know for its sun and beautiful beaches, Cameroon played Mexico in the second game of this World Cup in the rain at the stadium in Natal. The team lead by coach Volker Finke and Samuel Eto’o watched while Mexico controlled the game and can’t complain about a loss that was deserved.
Cameroon Starting XI: Itandje, Assou-Ekotto, Nkoulou, Djeugoue, Song, Moukandjo, Eto’o (c), Choupo Moting, Chedjou, Mbia, Enoh.
Mexico Starting XI: Ochoa, Rodriguez, Marquez (c), Herrera, Layun, Dos Santos, Moreno, Guardado, Peralta, Aguilar, Vazquez.
Starting the game Cameroon stood deep letting Mexico control possession, however it was Eto’o first to put his mark on the game after hitting the post in the 21st minute. Throughout the first half the Indomitable Lions right side struggled with the wave of Mexican attacks. Cameroon went into the half time happy with a tie especially with two goals disallowed goals from Dos Santos.
After the break Mexico picked up where they left of with possession and attacking football, but Cameroon also had its chance with a free kick that just went wide. Then finally in the 60th minute the goal finally came through Peralta after a shot was saved by Itandje. Coach Finke’s team started to pick it up however, Mexico managed to control the game only letting Cameroon on several occasions close to their goal. Cameroon’s Moukandjo header could of been the answer but was stopped by Ochoa with a great save in the 90th minute.
Cameroon can be happy with 0-1 lose especially with the two none allowed goals. The road to qualify for the next round doesn’t get any easier with Croatia on June 19 and host Brazil in Brasilia on June 23.
