World Cup: Cameroon, Serbia in crucial clash
Cameroon andSerbia go into Monday’s Group G match knowing thatanything less than a victory could send them packing fromthe World Cup by the time Brazil and Switzerland play later in the day.
Serbia are bottom ofthe group after losing 2-0 topre-tournament favourites Brazil while Cameroon’s 1-0loss to Switzerland means the African side are still seeking their first victory in the World Cup since 2002.
The match arguably gives both Cameroon, called the Indomitable Lions, and Serbia their best chances of opening their account in Qatar.
But a loss for either team— combined with a draw between Brazil and Switzerland— would prematurely bring the curtains down on their campaign, with nothing to play for but pride in their final group game on Friday.
Cameroonian Football Federation president Samuel Eto’o, the last player to scorea winner for the country in the World Cup 20 years ago, predicted his team would reach the final but a five-match winless run since September says otherwise.
This is a fairly young Cameroon team with little to no World Cup experience,however.
