Cameroon Defender Shown Headbutting Own Teammate After World Cup Loss (Video)


Cameroon was its own worst enemy Wednesday.

In the 44th minute of Cameroon’s 2014 FIFA World Cup game against Croatia, midfielder Alex Song carelessly — and viciously — elbowed Mario Mandzukic in the back and was shown a straight red card. The African nation was only trailing 1-0, but it was suddenly a man down and without one of its best players.

The Indomitable Lions ended up being dominated 4-0, and tensions on the team were high.

At the end of the game, Cameroonian teammates Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Benjamin Moukandjo were caught having a physical altercation.

The loss eliminated Cameroon from contention in the tournament, and it will take on host country Brazil in its final game Monday.
