(World Cup) Cameroon eliminated after 4-0 loss
(06-19 11:23)

Cameroon's day went from bad to worse, and ended with an early elimination from the World Cup.
The 1990 quarter-finalists, the first African team to make it that far at a World Cup, were outplayed and outmanned by Croatia on Wednesday in a 4-0 loss that leaves the Cameroonians with no chance of reaching the second round.
The evening started with the news that Samuel Eto'o, the team's best and most experienced player, would not start because of a right knee injury.
It got worse 40 minutes into the game when Alex Song inexplicably chased down Mario Mandzukic away from the ball and elbowed him in the back, drawing an immediate red card from referee Pedro Proenca of Portugal. At the time, the score was only 1-0. --AP
