No matter how we feel for Cameroon the fact remains that “THEY ARE THE FIRST TEAM TO BE ELIMINATED” in this 2010 World Cup. Cameroon has the distinction of being the first for the wrong reason unlike the winner of this competition in July.
All the first(1st)booking, red card,goal,penalty saved,headed goal etc will be in the annals of this years 2010 World Cup. Immediatedly after the game we tweeted,” Cameroon 1st team to be eliminated. Holland through. Denmark v Japan winner enters round 16th. Japan draw they go through goal differance. Congratulations to Holland for being the first team through to round 16th. 15 places left up for grabs .”
It’s sad but this world only remembers winners and achievers. Those who losts even by a whisker only share that moment of time while the Accolades will be showered on the Winners.
Cameroon gave us a “Gutsy” display and played their hearts out and we are proud to have witness a very entertaining fast flowing game of football unlike the previous games on offer. The country will mourn their exit from the world cup but they will hopefully come out stronger and better prepared in the years to come.
