Mexico Downs Cameroon 1-0 as Officials Flop Again

Mexico beat Cameroon 1-0 at a rain-drenched Natal on Friday in a World Cup Group A match scarred by more refereeing blunders.

Oribe Peralta grabbed the only goal after 61 minutes but Mexico will consider themselves unlucky not to have been more comfortable winners after Giovani Dos Santos had two goals ruled out for dubious offside decisions in the first half.

The blunders came just a day after Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura controversially awarded a penalty which set hosts Brazil on their way to a 3-1 win over Croatia.
