Vincent Aboubakar has backed up his belief that he’s as good as Mohamed Salah with a stunning second-half display to earn a draw for Cameroon.
The 30-year-old was introduced at 55 minutes during the African nation’s World Cup clash with Serbia, with Cameroon 3-1 down thanks to a Sergej Milinkovic Masterclass
However, the Al Nassr striker wasted little time in taking the game by the scruff of the neck and scored one and created one in just 11 minutes on the pitch.
After breaking Serbia’s offside trap, Aboubakar scooped the ball over the goalkeeper to make it 3-2, before breaking free and setting up Bayern Munich striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting who leveled the match at 3-3.
Having spent his best years with Lorient, Porto, and Besiktas, Aboubakar was never able to reach the highest level of European football. Still, speaking earlier this month the attacker insisted he was every bit as good as Liverpool talisman Mohammed Salah
He told reporters “I understand people’s attitudes, he’s one of the best goalscorers in the Premier League.
“It makes sense that people will talk when you go on about a player like that.
“But I did say it was my opinion, my point of view.
“I don’t give a toss if people don’t like it – I’m not impressed by him.
“I can do what he does. I just don’t have the opportunity to play in a big club.”
