CAF has paid tribute to Vincent Aboubakar, scorer of Cameroon’s lone goal against Brazil in group G of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
In that iconic moment, Ngom Mbekeli bursts down the right wing and fired an absolute peach of a cross into the box, and Aboubakar ghosted between the two centre-backs to notch a lovely cushioned header beyond Ederson and into the bottom corner. Cameroon led 1-0, but Serbia could not equalise against Switzerland as the game went on to end 3-2 for the Swiss.
Vincent Aboubakar’s strike meant the Indomitable Lions won against Brazil at the World Cup after wins in the Olympic games and Confederations Cup in 2000 and 2003.
