The Indomitable Lions get eliminated, Croatia still alive

It was a bad, bad night for Cameroon: a ridiculous red card from one its star players; four goals allowed; and head butts from teammates. An ugly day, but some cool GIFs.

Wink, wink.

Olic. Ivica Olic. The Daniel Craig stunt double gives Croatia the lead.

Corner_Chance

Croatia nearly doubles their lead off a corner-kick.

If you’ve never had metal studs on the top or side of your foot, you’re better off for it. Don’t ask a friend to do it out of curiosity. It’s not a bucket-list thing.
Throw_In
An arm-pit push is a classic counter-maneuver to an elbow-drop. However, it is illegal to touch a player on a throw-in. So Nicolas Nkoulou should count himself fortunate.
Song_RedCard
Alex Song. Idiot. #BuhBye
CRO_Goal2

Perisic doubles Croatia’s advantage. And to think, Alex Song, Cameroon’s players refused to board the plane to Brazil in a pay dispute just two weeks ago. Let that simmer.

Number 3!

Tak a good look Alex Song. This is what you’ve done.

throwaway
Good news and bad news. The good news is Cameroon isn’t going home empty handed. The bad news is they’re taking home the silver medal for worst shot of the World Cup. Remember the “war crime” shot by South Korea last night? This one isn’t far away.

headbutt
The referee missed a second red card–this one for Benoit Assou-Ekotto for headbutting HIS OWN TEAMMATE, Benjamin Moukandjo.
