Ameroon needs a famous result against Brazil on Friday night if they are to have any hope of qualifying for the knockout phase of the World Cup.
Since the days of Roger Milla, the Lions have failed to qualify from the groups at a World Cup and a single point against Switzerland and Serbia at least begs a win against favored Qatar.
Few would say that Brazil have been at their best so far, but a pair of wins without conceding has booked them a place in the round of 16.
Only one point will be needed to confirm their position as Group G winners.
The question for Tite’s team is whether they will be able to activate the samba style to claim victory and claim their right to the throne.

Team news Cameroon vs Brazil
Andre Onana will miss the Cameroon match after being suspended by his country amid a fight with coach Rigobert Song.
Olivier Ntcham is an injury doubt and the key puzzle for the team will be how best to deploy Vincent Aboubakar after their star came off the bench against Serbia.
Neymar, Danilo and Alex Sandro are not available for Brazil due to injury.
Eder Militao is expected to continue to fill in for the right-back with Alex Telles on the opposite flank. Rodrygo can be trusted to start the attack.
Cameroon vs Brazil prediction
Although the Lions pulled off a nice comeback against Serbia, they are actually the underdog in this game.
The score really depends on whether Brazil shakes off the shackles after sealing qualification or whether Neymar’s absence and his generally average displays in front of goal will be key to the plot.
Brazil wins 3-0.
