Cameroon v Brazil: Predicted lineups
World Cup 2014: Cameroon v Brazil Preview and Projected Lineups
The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon have had a tough road at the World Cup this summer having failed to really even get their challenge off the mark before it has already come to a close.
Both Mexico and Croatia dominated the African nation that had fought so hard to qualify over the last year and a half and had looked much more formidable than they have proven to be so far this summer.
Cameroon have the least tackles of all the 32 nations in the tournament thus far and have just never looked comfortable on the big stage this summer and are not expected to be much of a fight for Brazil.
The host nation has looked a bit shaky this summer and despite looking set to likely win their group, their opening victory against Croatia was ripe with controversy and they escaped what could have been a slaughter at the hands of Mexico had the Central American Nation capitalized on all their chances created and supported the form of Alex Ochoa with a load of goals to aid their campaign.
However, Brazil now have their opportunity to lockup their knockout stage credentials with the easier of their three fixtures this afternoon set to end their group stage round.
Cameroon will continue to be without injured Samuel Eto'o and Alex Song has been suspended for three matches following his deliberate, "karate chop," sending off against Croatia.
Hulk is the only injury concern for Brazil and Willian is expected to take his place in the first team in the attacking midfield alongside of Chelsea teammate Oscar and Neymar.
Cameroon Starting XI: Itandje: Nyom, N'Koulou, Nounkeu, Bedimo; Matip; Salli, Makoun, Enoh, Choupa-Moting; Webo.
Brazil Starting XI: Cesar: Alves, Luiz, Silva, Marcelo; Gustavo, Paulinho; Oscar, Neymar, Willian; Fred.
