Croatia kick-started their bid to reach the FIFA World Cup knockout stages with a resounding victory against ten-man Cameroon in Manaus.

Both sides had tasted defeat in their first Group A games but the draw between Brazil and Mexico yesterday had offered guaranteed qualification if either could win their two remaining fixtures. Croatia were on course to fulfil the first half of that requirement once Ivica Olić fired them into an early lead and the dismissal of Cameroon's Alex Song before the break aided their cause further. Ivan Perišić and Mario Mandžukić, twice, took full advantage with second-half goals.
