The ball bounced before entering the goal, almost colliding with the crossbar and blew up the stadium, which housed several Cameroonian fans among its stands.

It was clear that he had been left alone against the goalie to be in the right position. However, after a few seconds, the VAR indicated that the annotation was totally valid. With the signaling, the scream that had been deprived found its way out.
