How Cameroon could line up against Brazil

How Cameroon could line up against Brazil

Cameroon will have to make do without regular first-choice goalkeeper Andre Onana for Friday’s World Cup clash with Brazil at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

The Inter Milan stopper was sent home after a disagreement with manager Rigobert Song regarding his style of play, so Devis Epassy should feature between the sticks.

The Indomitable Lions have lined up with the same back four in both group games so far, with Collins Fai the mainstay on the right of the defence and Nouhou Tolo his opposite number on the left.

Jean-Charles Castelletto scored the African side’s first goal of the tournament in the 3-3 draw against Serbia, and he should keep his place in the centre of defence, alongside stalwart Nicolas N’Koulou, who has not missed a minute up to this point.

A midfield three has been the preferred choice for Song so far, with Napoli’s Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa set to feature in the middle, as well as Martin Hongla and Pierre Kunde, who both started the last match.

In attack, Karl Toko Ekambi has been substituted in both games so far, having failed to make his mark on the game from the left of a front three, so his place is in doubt going into Friday’s game.

Vincent Aboubakar may instead be chosen in attack, having scored the second goal last time out, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting set to feature after getting on the scoresheet, and Bryan Mbeumo likely to get the nod on the right of the three-pronged attack.

Cameroon possible starting lineup:
Epassy; Fai, Castelletto, Nkoulou, Tolo; Hongla, Anguissa, Kunde; Aboubakar, Choupo-Moting, Toko Ekambi
