Cameroon try their final luck against Brazil


Cameroon are staring the difficult reality of needing to defeat almighty Brazil at the Lusail Iconic Stadium to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup tomorrow.

After picking up a solitary point from their first two fixtures, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon must get a victory and pray for either a draw, or for Serbia to defeat Switzerland by a one-goal margin in the other match in Group G, while Brazil only need a point to emerge top.

While they will no doubt still be outsiders, head coach Rigobert Song will be praying his team may be able to capitalise on playing a Brazil team which may not be as strong as in past game, given the fact that they are very likely to qualify as group winners. Coach Rigobert Song will be banking on striker Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Chopou-Moting to do the scoring against a gifted Brazilian side.



Cameroon and Brazil last played in competitive match in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup, with Brazil coasting to a 4-1 win, courtesy of a brace from PSG star forward Neymar and two more goals from Fred and Fernandinho.

That scoreline would be more than sufficient for the Brazilians, teeing up a round of 16 meeting with the side that emerges second in Group H, most likely either Ghana or Uruguay.
