Mandzukic scores 2 as Croatia beats Cameroon 4-0



By CHRIS LEHOURITES

MANAUS, Brazil (AP) - Mario Mandzukic scored two goals Wednesday to keep Croatia in the mix at the World Cup with a 4-0 win over 10-man Cameroon, which cannot now advance from the group stage.

Mandzukic, who returned to the team at the Arena da Amazonia after sitting out the opening loss to Brazil through suspension, headed in a corner from Danijel Pranjic in the 61st minute and then knocked in a rebound in the 73rd of the Group A game.

Ivan Perisic also scored one goal and made another for Ivica Olic.

Cameroon was reduced to 10 men after midfielder Alex Song was given a red card for elbowing Mandzukic in the back in an off-the-ball incident in the 40th minute.

The team started without the injured Samuel Eto'o, the team's best player.

Kick a ball at a goal the size of a 747 with one guy garding it.

It's OK to dislike soccer, most of the world loves it and believes the USA is a minor player. Now that you have vented retire to the library and check your spelling, or better yet, hit spell check.
