"We didn’t start the match well, but we improved by keeping possession of the ball a bit better. We played in a very efficient manner tonight. Although Cameroon didn’t play as well as they can, that was partly down to our performance." Niko Kovac, Croatia coach

FULL TIME: Croatia's 4-0, the European's largest margin of victory in World Cup history, eliminates Cameroon from Brazil 2014. It was one-way football for most of the match, and once Cameroon were reduced to ten men it was too much to ask of Volker Finke's side. Group A's third set of matches will pit Croatia against Mexico and hosts Brazil to determine who will make it through to the Round of 16.
