Hello and welcome to the live blog for Cameroon vs Brazil, FIFA World Cup 2022, Group G match at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar.
Cameroon fought valiantly after losing to Switzerland, drawing 3-3 with Serbia in World Cup 2022. Cameroon now have a difficult task, but they will have to face a team that is already qualified in Brazil. The African giants have a clinical striker, and this will be one of their most significant matches.
Brazil demonstrated why they are projected favourites to win the World Cup after qualifying for the Round of 16 with two victories. Tite will rest his regular starter for the knockout stage as Brazil will face the winners of Group G and will hope Neymar recovers in time.

Players to watch
The Bayern Munich striker has been outstanding this season, and his goal-scoring instinct will be crucial for Cameroon to score goals and advance to the next round of this game. Choupo-Moting should be able to replicate his Bayern Munich form against Brazil.

He’s a calm midfielder who does his job without anyone understanding how Casemiro keeps the club balanced from defence to attack. Admirers swarmed Casemiro following his outstanding goal against Switzerland, which secured Brazil’s participation in the round of 16. The Manchester United player’s involvement is indispensable for Brazil because he understands where and when to be present when the team is attacking or defending. He is the team’s unseen orchestra.
Cameroon vs Brazil: Head-to-Head stats
Cameroon predicted XI (4-3-3): Epassy; Fai, Castelletto, N’Koulou, Tolo; Anguissa, Hongla, Kunde; Mbeumo, Aboubakar, Choupo-Moting.
Brazil predicted XI (4-1-4-1): Alisson; Militao, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Telles; Casemiro; Rodrygo, Guimaraes, Paqueta, Vinicius Jr; Jesus.
Cameroon will need three points after drawing with Serbia. They should be inspired by Tunisia’s 1-0 victory over France. Choupo-Moting and Aboubakar will need to be at their best because Brazil has not conceded a single shot on goal, making this the most difficult challenge for the African giants. Meanwhile, Brazil has nothing to lose considering they will play at a much lower pace and will be calmer of the two sides during the encounter.
