Result: Brazil 1-0 Cameroon
Date: 20 November 2018
Venue: Stadium mk
Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar limped off in the first half as Brazil defeated African champions Cameroon 1-0 in an international friendly.
The Brazilians were dealt a blow after just eight minutes when talisman Neymar was forced off with injury and replaced by Richarlison.
The loss of Neymar did seem to affect Selecao going forward, even with Willian and Roberto Firmino on the pitch as they struggled to carve out chances on goal in the opening 15 minutes.
Firmino should have opened the scoring for Brazil after 22 minutes after being left one-on-one with Fabrice Ondoa in the box, but the Liverpool star fired straight at the goalkeeper.
After spells of frustration, Brazil eventually broke the deadlock on the stroke of halftime through Richarlison, who sent a fine header past Ondoa following a cross from Willian.
Cameroon should have levelled matters ten minutes into the second half as Toko Ekambi raced down the right before picking out Stéphane Bahoken, who somehow placed his effort wide at the far post.
Two minutes later, the woodwork came to Cameroon's rescue as Gabriel Jesus rattled the upright after a handling error from Ondoa.
The African champions opted for a double change for the final 25 minutes as Clinton N'Jie and Christian Bassogog were introduced.
Bassogog went close to pulling Cameroon level in the 82nd minute but his cross into the six-yard was not turned home by a teammate as Selecao survived a scare.
Allan had a chance to double Brazil's lead in the closing stages but Ondoa was equal to the effort as the encounter ended 1-0.
Youssef En-Nesyri scored the only goal of the game as Morocco defeated Tunisia 1-0, while Nigeria and Uganda played to a goalless draw in Asaba.
