Cameroon Player Ratings
Cameroon First-Half Analysis
Charles Itandje: Looked a little nervy, but he saved well from Perisic's scuffed effort.
Nicolas Nkoulou: Composed display so far but nowhere to be seen for the goal.
Aurelien Chedjou: Solid but unspectacular.
Joel Matip: One bumbling run forward told the story of his team's first half.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto: Has quality when he wants to show it.
Alex Song: Moment of idiocy has cost his country dearly.
Stephane Mbia: Lack of end product hugely frustrating.
Eyong Enoh: Has energy in abundance.
Benjamin Moukandjo: Lively at the beginning but then tailed off.
Maxim Choupo-Moting: Taking up decent positions.
Vincent Aboubakar: His team's best player. Lively and dangerous.
Cameroon Second-Half Analysis
Charles Itandje: Hapless, clearly, but he's also unfortunate not to get more help from his defenders.
Nicolas Nkoulou: Quickly folded when the defence came under increased pressure following the Song red card.
Aurelien Chedjou: Replaced at half-time.
Joel Matip: Overrun in midfield by players of far higher quality.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto: Started to look disinterested and went missing for large periods.
Alex Song: Missed second half following first-half foolishness.
Stephane Mbia: Extremely poor and leggy. Game seemed too fast for him, as did former Sevilla teammate Ivan Rakitic.
Eyong Enoh: Ran around a lot but to little effect.
Benjamin Moukandjo: Missed a sitter late on and was largely frustrating.
Maxim Choupo-Moting: Has so much promise but seems unwilling to utilise it correctly.
Vincent Aboubakar: Best player for his side throughout. Often offered for a pass and was lively until being replaced.
Dany Nounkeu: On at half-time but had little to no effect.
Pierre Webo: Brought a good save from Stipe Pletikosa with a header.
Edgar Salli: Victim of a bad challenge by Eduardo.
