This triggered the first wave of protests in Cameroon. The African players argued long ago in the central circle and did not want to continue the duel. But coach Alain Djeumf calmed them down.
Shortly after the break, another controversial moment came when the VAR did not recognize Ajara Nchout's goal of hindrance. The Cameroon players again argued with Chinese referee Liang Qin and once again seemed to play no more. At 58 minutes, Alex Greenwood scored the salt for the Cameroon wounds.
In the final seconds, Cameroon Alexandra Takounda missed Houghton and just missed happy with a yellow card.
"I'm afraid we've seen a behavior that is unacceptable on the pitch today, whether we win, lose or draw, my players would not behave like that." I was not ashamed of the game and I did not like my players either, "said England coach Phil Neville , who criticized the behavior of Cameroon.
