Shocking results abound until the final day of the group stage. What grades do the 2022 FIFA World Cup Group G teams get after matchday three?

Cameroon (A)

The way they were playing, it was obvious they were not content in going home without taking a point.

Because of this determination, the Indomitable Lions were rewarded with a Vincent Aboubakar goal during injury time. This made him the third player from an African team to score against Brazil at the World Cup.

Cameroon is also the first African team to beat the canaries of South America in this level of competition.

Switzerland (A-)

You get a goal, you get a goal, everybody gets a goal. This is what World Cup matchday three is all about, up and down action.

Xherdan Shaqiri, Breel Embolo, and Remo Freuler all scored for the Swiss.

Serbia (B)

Serbia was still in the running for a knockout round position. Thus, the sense of urgency in their step.

They trailed, tied the count, took the lead, and lost the advantage. This all happened on the first half.

By the way, Aleksandar Mitrović scored his third goal in six World Cup appearances.

Brazil (C)

Like France, head coach Tite decided to empty the bench and rest his regulars. For 90 minutes they held the fort. But there was still stoppage time to play.

Brazil could have brought along Cameroon with them to the next round. However, the result of the Switzerland versus Serbia match made things moot.
