Expect Brazil to finally run riot against the ragged-looking Indomitable Lions.
Cameroon will be heading home after their final Group A match against the hosts in Brasilia, having already lost twice.
Lacklustre against Mexico, they were even worse against Croatia and the gamble they took on a clearly-unfit Samuel Eto’o has backfired badly. The veteran Chelsea striker travelled to Brazil suffering with a knee injury and, though he played in their opener, didn’t even make the bench against Croatia.

The self-proclaimed Indomitable Lions didn’t so much as purr, failing to threaten to score a goal in either game and should be easy picking for Brazil, who still need a win to make certain of their place in the last 16.
The hosts will be helped even further by the fact that Cameroon’s best midfielder, Alex Song, is suspended following a moment of madness, rashly thumping Mario Mandzukic in the back in the first half of Wednesday night’s clash with Croatia.
There have also been reports of tensions within the Cameroon camp and though Brazil are hardly worth a bet at 1/9, the 10/11 about a Samba Boys win on the European handicap conceding two goals looks very attractive.
The Brazilians didn’t impress everyone with their opening victory over Croatia. Indeed, they may have struggled to win had the referee not decided to make a couple of crucial interventions. But they looked much better in their draw against Mexico, who had goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa to thanks for their point.
Neymar should see plenty of the ball against the dispirited Africans and he’d put himself firmly in the Golden Boot picture if managing a hat-trick (9/1). He’ll be taking all of the free-kicks again when there is the chance of a shot on goal.
The match kicks off at 9pm UK time on Monday June 23rd at the Estadio Nacional, Brasilia.
