After halftime, Cameroon scored a goal which would have brought the scores to 2-1 but after giving the goal, VAR checked for a possible offside. Gabrielle Onguene foot, by the slimmest of margins, was offside in the lead-up and Ajara Nchout goal was overturned. 

"It was an absolute disgrace, it was a miscarriage of justice," Djeumfa said.

"I believe if we had half the deficit than I really believe that there would've been a different result at the end of the game if that goal had been allowed."

While England would all but cement their spot in the next round with an Alex Greenwood goal, it wasn't an enjoyable game for the team.

"I didn't enjoy the game for that reason. The players didn't enjoy the game for that reason apart from the fact they are in a quarter-final," Neville said. 

The frustration boiled over when in stoppage time England captain Steph Houghton was caught by a late challenge by Alexandra Takounda.

Cameroon captain Gabrielle Onguene then started to berate Houghton as she lay on the floor.

After the match, accusations flew around that referee was favouring England and that it was a way to eliminate an African team with Neville being asked in the post-match press conference about the situation.

"I've got great respect for African football but I've got to say that the accusations and the comments you've made, I totally disagree with," he said.

"The better team won."

Neville hopes that this is just a one-off incident.

"I've watched Cameroon play in the last three games in the World Cup and their supporters outside the hotel today were dancing and singing, that's what the World Cup is all about," he said.

"I'm hoping this is an isolated incident with a group of players who wanted to do well, you could feel their emotion and hurt.

"I'm sure they regret how they behaved."
