England coach, Phil Neville slams Cameroon team for crying in match

England coach, Phil Neville has reacted to the game between his side and Cameroon at the FIFA women’s world cup.

The Round of sixteen game saw England trash Cameroon 2-0 to book a place in the quarter finals.

The game kicked off with controversy as it appeared like Yvonne Leuko elbowed England’s Nikita Parris. The Cameroonian got booked without the use of VAR.

Later on, Augustine Ejangue appeared to have spat on Toni Dunggan though it wasn’t intentional.

Steph Houghton gave England the lead with a superb free-kick. The lead was doubled by Ellen White on the stroke of half time. A VAR check which allowed the goal left the Cameroonians furious to the point that the game was delayed for quite a bit.

Speaking after the game, England coach Phil Neville said:

“It didn’t feel like football, I’ve got to be honest,” he told the BBC.

“I know we get these briefs about coming on TV and saying it was a good win.

“We played okay, we passed the ball well, we were ruthless in attack and we are ready to play in the quarter-final.

“But I’ve got to say that wasn’t football for me. That wasn’t a World Cup last 16 in terms of the behaviour I want to see from footballers.”
