Cameroon Vs Brazil Football Score Match 2 December 2022

FIFA World Cup 2022 Schedule Today: All you need to know about South Korea vs Portugal, Ghana vs Uruguay, Serbia vs Switzerland and Cameroon vs Brazil FIFA World Cup 2022 matches.

In the groups stage of FIFA World Cup 2022, 32 teams are competing against each other for a place in the last 16. Eight teams namely Netherlands, Senegal, England, USA, Argentina, Poland, France and Australia have already booked their place in the round of 16. The tournament is set to kickstart the knockout stages with just eight more matches to go in the group stage.

Cristiano Ronaldo-led Portugal are already through to the round of 16 in the FIFA World Cup 2022. In their last group stage match against South Korea, they would look to continue their winning momentum having won both of their matches earlier. Meanwhile, South Korea would look to win and then hope that Uruguay defeats Ghana in another match at same time. However, the Asian nation would still need to have a better goal difference than Uruguay, to move to the last 16.

On the other side, two matches are lined up in Group G where Serbia will face off against Switzerland in a do-or-die match. Switzerland will have the chance to advance if they secure even a draw but for Serbia it’s a must-win game. Meanwhile Brazil will clash against Cameroon who compulsorily need to win to enter the last 16. Cameroon’s chances will depend on the result of Serbia vs Switzerland match as well. Brazil are already into the round of 16 with two wins in two games and they would look to top their group with yet another victory.

Cameroon are faced with the difficult prospect of needing to beat Brazil at the Lusail Iconic Stadium to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup on Friday. Having picked up just one point from their first two games, the Indomitable Lions must win and hope for either a draw, or for Serbia to beat Switzerland by a one-goal margin in the other game in Group G, while Selecao only need a point to finish top. Cameroon kicked off the group stage with a 1-0 defeat to Switzerland, with Breel Embolo scoring the only goal of the game against the country of his birth, in the eighth straight World Cup defeat for the African side.

The Indomitable Lions did create chances, registering as many shots on target as their opponents, but they came up just short, meaning they had to get at least a point in their second match, against Serbia. Despite at one point looking like they were heading for an early exit from the tournament, Rigobert Song’s side fought back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game up at 3-3, after Jean-Charles Castelletto had initially opened the scoring. Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting struck within quick succession in the second half to ensure that Cameroon have something to play for on Friday, showing the determination that will be required if they are to get anything against one of the tournament favourites.

While they will no doubt still be outsiders, Song will be hoping his side may be able to capitalise on playing a Brazil team which may not be as strong as in previous matches, owing to the fact that they are very likely to progress as group winners. As expected, Brazil have booked their place in the round of 16, winning their first two games at the World Cup for the first time since 2010, in which they reached the quarter-final. Selecao are yet to concede a goal in the tournament, kicking off with a 2-0 victory against Serbia, in which Tottenham Hotspur striker Richarlison bagged a second-half brace to wrap up the three points.

Following that, Tite’s side left it late but again secured a victory, this time against Switzerland, with the goal coming from a perhaps unexpected source, given their array of attacking talent, as Casemiro struck late to seal a 1-0 victory. The two sides last met in competitive action in the group stage of the 2014 World Cup, in which Brazil emerged 4-1 victors thanks to a Neymar double and additional goals from Fred and Fernandinho. That scoreline would be more than enough for Selecao on Friday, setting up a round of 16 clash against the team that finishes second in Group H, most likely either Ghana or Uruguay.

Andre Onana will not feature in goal for Cameroon, having been sent home for disciplinary reasons after a disagreement with the manager regarding style of play. As a result, the more inexperienced Devis Epassy should get the nod between the sticks, as he did in the last match, while Vincent Aboubakar may be brought in to the frontline, having scored from the bench last time out. Brazil have a number of players unavailable due to injury, with Alex Sandro the latest player to be ruled out after undergoing a scan regarding the hip issue that forced him off against Switzerland.

In his absence, Alex Telles is likely to come into the team at left-back, having been brought on for the final five minutes last time out. Key player Neymar is also set to miss out due to an ankle injury which ruled him out of the last game, while another problem in the same area means that Danilo will not be in contention for a place in the backline. Tite may also choose to rest a few Brazil players as a result of already qualifying for the knockout stages, so Bruno Guimaraes, Gabriel Jesus and Antony could be given some more minutes.
