Paul Pogba saw a header go just wide as France pressed a lively Cameroon side. Nyoms sliding tackle deflected a dangerous-looking opportunity for Matuidi, but the pressure finally told when Giroud pounced on a Pogba cross, side-footing it past the wrong-footed keeper Fabrice Ondoa. Cameroons Aurelien Chedjou was given too much space down the right flank early in the second period, the Galatasaray defenders hard cross-goal shot cleared by a covering Giroud. Ondoa was on hand to keep Giroud out as play shot back up the other end of the pitch after a defensive, retreating blunder by Chedjou. NGolo Nante, one of Leicester Citys stand-out performers as they marched to a shock English Premier League title, fired in a shot that went just wide of the Cameroon post after Ondoa had produced another goal-saving lunge at a close-range Pogba effort. Andre-Pierre Gignac blasted high and wide after pivoting smartly on the edge of the area. And Ondoa was left to showcase his fine form with an outstanding save. His resulting goalkick beat everyone before being grounded by Mohammed Djetei and centred for the unmarked Choupo Moting, who made no mistake past Lloris. But the game was not over, Payet stepping up to curl in a magnificent free-kick past Ondoa.
