CAMEROON must WIN to advance from Group G to the knockout rounds of the World Cup – and it couldn’t get much harder.
Rigobert Song will lead his squad into battle against tournament favorites and undefeated Brazil.
The Samba Boys need just one point to win the group and will be desperate to maintain their 100 percent record.
But boss Tite could shuffle his pack to avoid further injuries – as Neymar is already out until the knockout stages and that’s wishful thinking.
Cameroon are hoping to reach the round of 16 with their African compatriot Senegal. Of course they meet England on Sunday.
SunSport takes a look at what to expect from Cameroon vs Brazil, including our result prediction.
How are you?
Cameroon: A lackluster performance in a 1-0 defeat by Switzerland was completely transformed in the second game against Serbia.
The Indomitable Lions were 3-1 down before claiming part of the spoils with two goals in a crazy three-minute period.

Any injuries to worry about?
Cameroon: The Indomitable Lions have no new injury concerns.
Goalkeeper Andre Onana was sent home after a tactical argument with the manager.
Brazil: Starman Neymar will miss this game and maybe more with an ankle injury.
Danilo and Alex Sandro are also out expecting Tite to shuffle his pack and rest some of the other stars.
who to watch
Cameroon: Eric Choupo-Moting has come a long way since his Stoke days.
The Bayern Munich frontman has been linked with a sensational move to Manchester United after his deal was finalized in the summer.
Brazil: With several stars rested for that final group game, it could offer someone a chance to bid firmly for the KO stage.
It could mean Newcastle star Bruno Guimaraes finally gets his chance in the middle of the park – his form in the Prem was stunning.
Cameroon can ONLY qualify with a win – and have yet to hope for either a draw between Serbia and Switzerland or a Serb victory by a goal.
Brazil has already qualified, one point is enough to win the group.
What is the head to head?
These two have met six times before, with Brazil winning five and Cameroon the other.
The last result was a 1-0 win for the Samba Boys in a friendly in 2018.
Cameroon, who need to win the game, could prove to be a major disaster.
With the need to move on, they could be exposed by Brazil’s panache and creativity.
