Nigeria, Nov. 28 -- The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon are still hanging on to their slim hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage of the World Cup.

On Monday, the Lions had to dig deep to force Serbia to a 3-3 draw in their second group game at the World Cup in Qatar.

While Cameroon would have hoped for a better result in Monday's outing, they would be happy having halted their eight-match losing streak at the World Cup.

They would also be glad to have done enough to stay in contention for a place in Round 16 going into their final group game against Brazil.

Cameroon scored first from Jean-Charles Castelleto tap-in before Serbia finished the first half with two quick-fire goals from Strahinja Pavlovic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
