One of the final matches of Group G in the 2022 FIFA World Cup will see five-time champions Brazil take on Cameroon. Brazil have already secured qualification to the knockout stages of the tournament after two impressive victories against Serbia and Switzerland. The men in yellow recorded a dominant 2-0 win over Serbia and scraped a 1-0 triumph over the Swiss. In the latter, Brazil seemed unsure in the final third as they missed quite a few chances. What the team does not lack is chance creation as their midfielders have the ability to split open any defence in the world cup.

Things will be difficult for Cameroon against the five-time winners but the African nation is still within a shout of making it to the last 16. They have drawn one match and lost one match, taking their points tally to one. If they beat Brazil, they will have four points, which will be enough is Serbia beat Switzerland with a fewer goal difference than Cameroon. However, it is a tall order as beating a team like Brazil will be no easy feat.

Despite appearing to be on the verge of elimination from the tournament, Rigobert Song’s team rallied from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game at 3-3 after Jean-Charles Castelletto opened the scoring. Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored in quick succession in the second half to ensure Cameroon has something to play for on Friday, demonstrating the tenacity required to get anything against one of the tournament favourites.

Probable Lineups

Andre Onana will not play for Cameroon because he was sent home for disciplinary reasons following a disagreement with the manager over style of play. As a result, the more inexperienced Devis Epassy should start in goal, as he did in the previous game, while Vincent Aboubakar, who scored from the bench the last time out, could be called up to the frontline. Brazil are missing a number of players due to injury, with Alex Sandro the most recent to be ruled out after undergoing a scan for the hip issue that forced him off against Switzerland. In his absence, Alex Telles, who came on for the final five minutes the last time, is expected to fill in at left back.

Key player Neymar is also expected to miss out due to an ankle injury that kept him out of the previous game, and Danilo will not be in contention for a spot in the backline due to a similar issue. Tite may also choose to rest a few Brazil players due to the fact that they have already qualified for the knockout stages, so Bruno Guimaraes, Gabriel Jesus, and Antony may see more action.

Brazil probable starting lineups: Alisson; Militao, Marquinhos, Silva, Telles; Casemiro, Guimaraes, Paqueta; Antony, Jesus, Vinicius Jr

Cameroon probable starting lineup: Epassy; Fai, Castelletto, Nkoulou, Tolo; Hongla, Anguissa, Kunde; Aboubakar, Choupo-Moting, Toko Ekambi
