Here are the thoughts of The Independent's Jack Pitt-Brooke on tonight's combustible Group A clash in Manaus...

Cameroon were limiting Croatia with some effect - even at 1- 0 down - not allowing Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic to dictate the game quite as much as they might like.

But since Alex Song's dismissal Cameroon have far less presence in midfield and now it is far less likely that they will be able to drag themselves back into this game. They need a win to stay in the competition and it is very hard to see where they find it now.
For no apparent reason the Barcelona man elects to lash out at Mario Mandzukic as they both chase the play.
