FIFA U-17 World Cup: Cameroon on Verge of Elimination After Defeat to Argentina

Argentina turned around a half-time deficit to earn a crucial 3-1 win over Cameroon in Vitoria at Brazil 2019 on Thursday.
A towering early header from Francois Bere had Cameroon in front until 13 minutes after the interval when a quickfire double gave Argentina the lead, before the South Americans added late insurance for a deserved victory. The result pushes Argentina into second behind Spain on goal difference, while Cameroon’s hopes of progression hang by a thread.
With little scope for error, Argentina impressed with their composure having been behind for a large chunk of the match. The South Americans dominated goalscoring opportunities and possession, before Alexis Flores finally drew them level. Despite looking the better side, Argentina relied on a mistake from the opposition goalkeeper to take the lead and added a late third on the counter-attack as Cameroon chased the game.

Cameroon must now beat Spain to have any hope of progression into the next round.
