Vincent Aboubakar was on Friday night, 2 December, in the best form of his life as he scored the only goal that helped Cameroon beat Brazil in their last group game at the 2022 World Cup.

Although the goal did not help Cameroon to qualify for the round of 16, but beating mighty Brazil in the World Cup will remain a big achievement for the Indomitable Lions.

Interestingly, Cameroon are now the first African nation in history to beat Brazil in the World Cup which is an impressive and amazing record.

Aboubakar hits both Messi, Ronaldo celebrations

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how Vincent Aboubakar once grabbed headlines at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar with a huge goal for his country against Brazil.

Aboubakar lobbed in a header in stoppage time to give Cameroon maximum points against the five-time World champions.

Even though it was a massively changed side from Tite, the win was a first on many fronts. It was the first time that an African country had beaten Brazil at the World Cup. It was also the first goal the Selecao had conceded in Qatar.

It wasn't just enough to take Cameroon through, as Switzerland vs Serbia match did not go as planned. But Aboubakar and his teammates celebrated the goal proudly that he got sent off for taking off his shirt.

Apart from taking off his shirt, Aboubakar hit a series of celebrations that have been made famous by arguably two of the best-ever footballers, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
