The Lionesses' scored their second goal thanks to VAR while Cameroon were disallowed a goal through video technology.

And speaking after Cameroon's 3-0 defeat to England, Djeumfa didn't hold back when giving his views on the fiery clash.

"It was a miscarriage of justice," he said in his post-match press conference. "Why should I talk about anything other than that?

"Unfortunately, it seems like the officials wanted something else and from that point on [the first goal] maybe the girls lost their tempers a bit.

"Of course, I am frustrated but in the end, football is all about fair play and we showed fair play.

"Occasionally the referee makes mistakes but ultimately, the referee made a lot of mistakes tonight."

England coach Phil Neville issued an extremely passionate post-match interview immediately after guiding his team to the last eight.

"It didn't feel like football. I know we get these these briefs about coming on TV and saying it was good game, but that wasn't a last-16 tie in terms of behaviour from footballers. This is going out worldwide," he said.

"I didn't enjoy it, the players didn't enjoy it and my players kept their concentration, but those images are going out worldwide and young girls are seeing that behaviour and it's not right.

"There has to be a standard of behaviour that you have to do, and my players did that.

"We've been spoken to by referees 350,000 times and she got every decision right.

"I even think we should have had a penalty and a red card at the end. She took pity on them. They should count their lucky stars it wasn't five or six."

England resume their campaign against Norway on June 27 for a spot in the semi-finals.
