Cameroon will face heavyweights Brazil in the FIFA World Cup group stages. The match will occur at the Lusail stadium in Qatar on December 3rd. Brazil is the clear favourite on paper to top the group, which consists of teams like Serbia and Switzerland. However, this is the world cup, and no team can be taken lightly in such a competition. Cameroon will look to create an upset against Brazil. Even one loss or win can change the course of the group, which is why every team will play every match like it is a knockout.
Brazil and Cameroon have met five times prior to this meeting, with Brazil winning four out of those five and losing only one. They also met in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which resulted in a win for Brazil 4-1. This could go down as one of the greatest upsets in world cup history if Cameroon manages to pull it off.

The fixture table for both teams is as follows. This will be their final game in the FIFA World Cup group stage. Brazil is in one hell of a run when it comes to winning matches. They have won all five of their last five games. On the other hand, Cameroon has only one win in their previous five games. They have lost three out of those five. Cameroon will need to improve in order to give this in form and world cup favourites, Brazil, a tough fight.
Things to watch out for
- Neymar jr has been lighting up the French league for his club, PSG. He has scored ten goals in 12 matches in Ligue 1 with eight assists which is mind-blowing. His form will be key to Brazil’s charge for the world cup.
- Eric Maxim Choupo-moting will be Cameroon’s main man upfront. He is scoring for fun for his club Bayern Munich in the domestic circuit. He will be critical for Cameroon at the world cup.
- Brazil head into the FIFA World Cup as favourites to win the competition. It has been a good while since the last time they were frontrunners to win the world cup. Their squad depth and their current form are unmatched. If everything goes according to plan, we may witness them lifting the trophy for the first time in recent history.
