Host nation Brazil return to field on Monday evening, and the Selecao will be hoping to finally find their form as they aim to top Group A.
The Brazilian beat Croatia and drew with Mexico in their opening two matches of the competition, however on both occasions Luis Felipe Scolari’s side roundly underperformed.
Whilst there have been flashes of excellence from the likes of Neymar and Oscar, on the other side of the scale Tottenham midfielder Paulinho has looked way off the pace in the centre of the Brazilian midfielder, while Fred has yet to convince doubters of his place in the team up-front.
Yet, saying all that, Brazil will be expected to turn over Cameroon, with the Africans rooted to the bottom of the group after two straight defeats.
Cameroon have been a shambles at this World Cup, which began with the Africans arriving late in Brazil after an internal row about bonuses in Brazil.
With Samuel Eto’o out with an injury, Alex Song suspended after his brain-dead elbow against Croatia, and having finished their last match with Benoit Assou-Ekotto having headbutted team-mate Benjamin Moukandjo at the end of the last match, Cameroon look a dead-cert to lose against the host nation.
With that said, here are some match facts ahead of the game:
Cameroon won the last meeting involving these sides, running out 1-0 victors when Samuel Eto’o scored a late winner during the 2003 Confederations Cup.
Cameroon have kept only one clean sheet in their last 18 World Cup games.
