Cameroon was only down by one goal, but down one player as well after Alexandre Song's red card in the first half. In the second haf, the wheels came off completely as Croatia scored three more goals against an increasingly listless, defeated Cameroon squad. Croatia struck again early in the second half, in the 48th minute of the match, on a goal by Ivan Perisic.
The next two goals for Croatia came from Mario Mandzukic. He scored in the 61st minute, and again in the 73rd minute.
Mandzukic's second goal:
Perhaps the worst part of this game for Cameroon - aside from Song's red card - was the in-fighting that took place at the end of the game. It wans't pretty. Cameroon now officially eliminated from the World Cup with the 4-0 loss.
