Cameroon Scores Two Goals in Three Minutes to Draw Even Vs. Serbia |+video

NBC | Two quick goals put Cameroon behind in Monday’s World Cup match against Serbia, and it was two quick goals that put them right back in the mix.

Trailing 3-1 early in the second half, Cameroon roared back with two tallies in a three-minute span to draw level.

Vincent Aboubakar made it a 3-2 game in the 64th minute with a cheeky flick over Serbian goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovi?-Savi?. An official initially lifted his flag up to indicate offside, but the goal counted as Aboubakar timed a perfect run.

Just two minutes later, Aboubakar contributed to another Cameroonian goal. He raced up the right side of the goal and passed to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on his left. Choupo-Moting finished the play with a strike that made it 3-3, which wound up being the final score.

Jean-Charles Castelletto got Cameroon on the board in the 29th minute, but Serbia proceeded to score three straight goals between first-half stoppage time and the 53rd minute.

Cameroon and Serbia entered Monday at the bottom of the Group G table and now have one point apiece after drawing 3-3 on Monday. Brazil and Switzerland have three points each and are facing one another at 11 a.m. ET on Monday.

Cameroon closes Group G play against Brazil, while Serbia will face Switzerland. Both matches will take place at 2 p.m. ET on Friday.
