In the match that brought the second round of matches in Group A to an end, Croatia took no notice of Cameroon. With two goals by Mandzukic, one from Olic and another from Perisic, Croatia beat Cameroon 4-0 in front of 39,982 people at the Amazonia Arena in Manaus. The result has secured Croatia first three points and mathematically speaking, has crushed any chance the African team had of getting through to the World Cup knockout stage.
In the last round of group matches, Brazil plays Cameroon on Monday (23.06) at 05:00pm at the National Stadium in Brasilia. With four points and leading the group on goal difference, Luiz Felipe Scolari’s team only needs a draw to ensure they go through. At the same time at the Pernambuco Arena in Recife, Croatia and Mexico fight it out to see which side will make it to the round of 16. Whoever wins secures their place in the next round, without having to get the calculator out.
