Roberto Firmino's misfortunes ahead of the goal continued for Brazil on the final night of international action before any player returned to Liverpool.
Progress, playing in a more withdrawn role for much of the club-style season, has only one goal in the last 11 Reds.
Two fights with international duty gave him an undefeated role No. 9, but he continued luck as Brazil won Cameroon a little 1-0 at the MK Stadium at Milton Keynes.
Firmino played the first half and had two great chances to open the scoring but saw a near-stride effort that the opposition goalkeeper's brilliance saved before advancing another clear shot of the goal.
The Liverpool midfielder and the Brazilian Fabinho did not participate, which meant that he did not see a minute of action throughout the international break.
Alisson goalkeeper was also an unused against Cameroon.
In UEFA League of Nations, Andy Robertson accused Scotland of winning 3-2 against Israel, leading his side to promotion.
The three points saw Scotland overtake their opponents in first place in League C, Group 1 – a very positive start of Robertson's term as governor.
There was also a great performance at U21 level, as Dominic Solanke scored another arm for England-making four goals in two games for the aggressor.
He helped his nation to defeat Denmark by 5-1, with his first goal having a controlled head, which goes beyond the goal aside.

The second night for Solanke was so impressive as it was a sign of his improved confidence: the great reactions to reach a hit and the presence of the mind both to avoid both the defensive and the rear finish with a glamorous finish from the guard.
"HOW TO YOU!"

Continuing the theme of successful nights at the international youth level, goalkeeper Kamil Grabara played the full 90 minutes of the Polish U21s 3-1 victory over Portugal.
The result secured a total win of 3-2 for the Grabara side in what was the UEFA Championship U21 play-off.
While Liverpool suffered a lot of injuries in October's international break, it seems that it has suddenly occurred this time.
Each player will have to update Melwood again tomorrow – and Jurgen Klopp should have a full team to pick from the weekend game against Watford.
The same can not be said for Paris Saint-Germain, however, who the Reds face in a week at a crucial meeting of the Champions League.
Neymar left the stadium just seven minutes in the Brazilian victory over Cameroon, with a clear thigh.
Teammate Kylian Mbappe, in action for France against Uruguay, suffered a serious fall in conflict with the goalkeeper and injured his right shoulder as a result.
The League 1 team is eager to wait to determine the extent of these injuries. The PSG is home for the 15th place in Toulouse on Saturday.
