  • Cameroon were involved in one of the games of the tournament last time out when they came from two goals down to draw 3-3 with Serbia, which kept their slim qualification hopes alive
  • Andre Onana has been axed from the camp due to a disagreement with the manager so Devis Epassy is poised to feature between the sticks once again, while Vincent Aboubakar – who scored from the bench against Serbia – will be hoping to start this one.


  • After winning their first two matches, Brazil are are already guaranteed to make it into the round of 16 and need just a point to ensure they finish top of Group G.
  • Head coach Tite will welcome the opportunity to rest a few players here, while Alex Sandro is the latest player to enter the treatment room after he picked up a hip injury against Switzerland last time out.



PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Epassy; Fai, Castelletto, Nkoulou, Tolo; Zambo Anguissa, Hongla, Kunde; Mbeumo, Choupo-Moting, Aboubakar

UNAVAILABLE: Onana (Disciplinary)



PREDICTED XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Alves, Eder Militao, Bremer, Telles; Fabinho, Guimaraes; Antony, Rodrygo, Martinelli; Jesus

UNAVAILABLE: Alex Sandro (Injured), Danilo (Injured), Neymar (Injured)



  • Cameroon’s overall World Cup record against South American nations is W2 D2 L2 - with both defeats coming against Brazil
  • Cameroon are without a win in their last nine World Cup matches (D1 L8)
  • Cameroon have won only one of their last 18 World Cup matches (D5 L12)
  • Cameroon have kept only one clean sheet in their last 21 World Cup matches
  • The 3-3 draw against Serbia was the first time that Cameroon have scored three in a FIFA World Cup match
  • An appearance for Nicolas N'Koulou would move him level with Rigobert Song on nine World Cup appearances Only François Omam-Biyik (11) and Roger Milla (10) have played more matches for Cameroon at the finals
  • Brazil have lost only one of their last 29 matches in the group stage at the FIFA World Cup
  • Brazil are currently unbeaten in 17 successive group games (W14 D3) since a 2-1 defeat against Norway at France 1998 which is a tournament record surpassing Germany’s streak of 16 matches unbeaten from 1990 to 2010
  • Brazil have won each of their previous seven FIFA World Cup matches against African nations. This includes a 3-0 win and 4-1 win against Cameroon
  • Brazil have scored three or more goals in all but one of their previous seven FIFA World Cup matches against African nations
  • Brazil have won their opening two matches at a FIFA World Cup final competition for the tenth time
  • Brazil are aiming to win three out of three matches in a World Cup group for the seventh time, 2006 was the last time they did so
  • Brazil have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four World Cup group stage matches
  • Brazil have only failed to score in two of their last 35 matches in a group stage at the FIFA World Cup.
  • Brazil are unbeaten in their last 17 international matches (W14 D3) and they have won each of their last nine matches
  • It is the 14th successive time that Brazil have qualified from an opening round group stage at the FIFA World Cup. The last time they failed to progress through the first phase was 1966
  • The last time Brazil completed a World Cup group stage without conceding a goal was 1986


Such is the strength in depth of this Brazil squad, they could rotate their entire starting XI and still be considered heavy favourites here. With the condensed schedule of this World Cup leading to fatigue and potential injuries, the fact that Brazil have already qualified for the knockout stage is a huge boost to the tournament favourites. Cameroon certainly won’t go down without a fight and do possess some genuine quality up front with the likes of Bayern forward Choupo-Moting, but you would still expect Brazil to come out on top.
