Watch: Cameroon's Webo hurt while scoring overhead golazo in pre-WC friendly

Pierre Webo helped and hurt his case at going to a second World Cup all in one spectacular moment Monday.

In Cameroon's 2-0 World Cup tuneup victory over Macedonia, Webo, the 32-year-old Fenerbahce forward, scored on wondrous overhead kick to put the Indomitable Lions ahead in the 52nd minute. Webo measured an arching deflected shot and timed his run and bicycle kick perfectly, but he landed awkwardly on his left shoulder and immediately called for medical attention as he ran off the field in pain. 

Webo was on Cameroon's 2010 World Cup team, starting two games in South Africa before the nation was bounced on its home continent in the group stage after a disappointing 0-3-0 showing. Whether he gets the chance to help Cameroon in Brazil certainly figures to depend heavily on the severity of Monday's injury. He scored 10 goals in all competitions for the reigning Turkish Super Lig champion.

Cameroon opens the World Cup against Mexico and will also play host Brazil and Croatia in the World Cup's Group A.
