First one was close but the second he was waaay onside
First one they showed exact replay and it was perfect call.
Serbia will be happier with draw. Likely all to play for vs Switzerland.
What a game Game of the tournament!
It was entertaining but the defending of some players on both sides was criminal.
Don't know what to Say anymore..at this point it becomes better to laugh about it.
Years After différent players same story again and again.
How Can you give such open field to your opponent in a World cup game when you lead 3-1? WTF?
To be fair both Aboubakar runs were inch perfect and he simply is great at beating the offside trap. Still one or two defenders in Serbia absolutely terrible.
Sadly I cannot see Cameroon advancing. Them beating Brazil is as likely as me winning the lottery (and I don’t even play)
Both teams completely gave up the midfield in the second half.
Stojkovic failed to coach his team properly.
It was his task to calm down the players after being 3-1 up.
They conceded the second and third goal because they wanted to push for more goals but there wasn't any need for that.
He really should have intervened.
To be fair the only African country to ever beat Brasil in a competitive match. But that was the Marc Vivien Foe, Geremi, Lauren and Eto'o era...
This defece is ay!
Serbia is able to destroy Switzerland as they will want their revenge. But i don't think you Can have a deep run with such unserious squad. They are the kind that could lead a round 16 2-0 and still lose it.
If Brazil comfortably qualifies against Switzerland tonight, then they may be playing their subs against Cameroon in a game that would be meaningless for them. But we aren't there yet.
Switzerland has good qualities as well. They eliminated France at last euro, got kicked out in quarters by Spain only on penalties and eliminated Italy from the qualifiers.
Brazilian subs are still above Cameroon by miles.
Yes. But still even with Stojkovic showing his limits there are guys that shouldn't Wear thé national jersey anymore.
Not only that but they will be rested players with something to prove
Cameroon is out
Stranger things have happened, but they needed a win today.
I didn't say the opposite, I only explained the context. Brazil hasn't even won yet against Switzerland.
Anyway, even if Switzerland loses today, Switzerland remains in a more favourable position than Serbia. The Serbian defensive weaknesses haven't been left unnoticed and the Swiss know how to be lethal on counters.
Don't underestimate balkan mentality. Yes obviously Serbia has a serious weakness that Switzerland can expose once more. But Serbia has a special revenge to take against Switzerland and they might also eat them alive.
This match is way more unpredictable than it seems.
It'll be a great game regardless! I hope Serbia can fix the weaknesses and win this.
All of these comments are spot on, including the Brazilian gent who said “Serbia being Serbia”. I was unable to watch the game and had it recorded instead but after simply seeing the score in news I knew already what had happened. We are really the kings of screw-ups. The blame lies squarely with Stojkovic as he HAD to be able to dictate the tempo and strategy to the team. All he had to do is follow how brilliantly Croatians dealt with Canada…but instead of 1:4 we get 3:3. I’m not hopeful for the good result against Switzerland at all. I give it about 30:70 at this point.
