Story highlights

FIFA World Cup 2022: The fourth match on Friday, December 2 will be played between Brazil and Cameroon. It’s a do-or-die match for Cameroon, but Brazil looks all set to qualify for the round of 16

For Cameroon to reach the round of 16 from here, it needs to beat Brazil at the Lusail Stadium on Friday. The challenge is huge as Brazil is looking simply unstoppable after having won both of its group stage matches. Cameroon’s chances of reaching the knockout stages are hanging in balance though. The team managed to gather just 1 point from its two previous matches. Now, not only Cameroon needs to win the game against Brazil, it also requires Serbia to beat Switzerland or play a draw in the other match of the group. A Swiss victory will simply shatter Cameroon’s race to the World Cup title.
