Aboubakar came off the bench to rescue his side by scoring one superb goal and creating another as they fought back to draw 3-3 with Serbia, a result that kept both sides’ slim chances alive at the World Cup in Qatar.

Jean-Charles Castelletto’s netted an opening goal for Cameroon at Al Janoub Stadium in the 29th minute. However Strahinja Pavlovic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Serbia scored a goal each in first-half stoppage time to make it 2-1 against the West Africans.

Serbia’s Aleksandar Mitrovic netted after the break to make it 3-1.

Aboubakar was summoned off the bench in the 55th minute and pulled a goal back for Cameroon with a stunning scooped chip over the keeper in the 63rd, before teeing up Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to draw them level three minutes later. The draw halted a run of eight consecutive World Cup defeats for the African side.

The result left both sides on one point and needing to win their final Group G game to stand a chance of going through to the knockout stages, with Cameroon facing Brazil on Friday when Serbia take on Switzerland.
