The group stage concluded in Qatar with the final matches in Groups G and H to see who would join Brazil and Portugal in the knockout stage.

The afternoon games provided another another rollercoaster of madness, with South Korea beating Portugal with a late goal to go through with them, while the two goals that Uruguay had scored against Ghana proved insufficient in the end.

As news of Hwang Hee-chan's goal filtered through to Al Janoub Stadium, the South Americans pushed frantically in added time for a third goal of their own but the Ghanaians held firm while Uruguay's players vented their anger at the German referee after the final whistle for his refusal too buy obviously fallacious penalty claims. 

The evening games presented a lot less drama for most of the 90 minutes, with Cameroon far too negative in their game of death with Brazil until 9 minutes when Aboubakar scored a great header to win it for the Africans. He got so excited, however, that he pulled off his shirt and was promptly shown a second yellow  card!

Cameroon needed another goal but with 10 men they couldn't find a another, although they depart Qatar as the first African to defeat Brazil in the World Cup Finals. 

Meanwhile, Switzerland went through after beating Serbia 3-2, with the latter dead on their feet by the close as they vainly searched for an equaliser that would have changed things dramatically at the death had they been able to manage it.
