Mexico edge past Cameroon 1-0

By The Assam Tribune

NATAL, June 13 (IANS): Mexico opened their 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over African giants Cameroon in a Group A encounter at the Estadio das Dunas here Friday.

Former Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona winger Giovanni Dos Santos was involved in the build-up as his low shot was saved by the Cameroon goalie but Oribe Peralta pounced on the rebound to fire Mexico into the lead.

It was a well-deserved win for the Mexican side after two goals were wrongly disallowed in the first half.

Miguel Herrera's side may now well fancy their chances against Brazil in the big match in Fortaleza Tuesday.
