This year’s World Cup will be one of the most remembered ones ever, with holders Spain already on their way home and England following suit. Moreover, goals and more goals kept fans from across the world interested in this mega tourney. As the action turns to Brasilia, hosts Brazil play their last game today against a depleted Cameroonian side that has already booked its ticket back home.
Following their thrilling 3-1 success over Croatia in the opening game of Group A, Neymar and company were stopped in the way by Mexico keeper Guillermo Ochoa, who registered six saves. Also, their midfield came into severe criticism as the Round of 16 looms. Coach Luis Felipe Scolari might ponder changes and rest some of the stars in this dead rubber.
On the other hand, opponents Cameroon look a completely ‘different’ side. This World Cup almost feels much like a repeat of 2010 in South Africa, when a reported rift between Eto’o and Song divided the team and led to a fourth-straight group-stage exit. With Alex Song suspended and squad in-fighting, it’s hard to imagine a Cameroonian victory tonight. Samuel Eto’o needs to take responsibility of his side’s failings and put up a decent show atleast for those travelling fans.
