Cameroon Just Set The Bar For World Cup Meltdowns

A red card, a headbutt, and a 4-0 loss to Croatia. Not the Indomitable Lions’ best day.

1. Down 4-0 in the 90th minute — and already down a man, after Alex Song was ejected for a nasty elbow to the back of Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic, things somehow got worse for Cameroon.


2. Benoit Assou-Ekotto headbutted Benjamin Moukandjo, and the two had to be separated by teammates.


3. With the loss, Cameroon was also eliminated from the World Cup. They’ll play their final group stage game Monday against Brazil.
