Ones to watch

Star – Karl Toko Ekambi: The reason Cameroon are in Qatar, the highly-rated Lyon forward’s goal sparked jubilant scenes as Cameroon beat Algeria in their play-off. He has scored 12 goals in 50 games since his debut in 2015, and netted five times at AFCON earlier this year. This will be his first World Cup.

Breakout talent – Bryan Mbeumo: The Brentford striker – who has linked up so brilliantly with Ivan Toney since the Bees’ promotion to the Premier League – represented France at youth level but switched allegiance to Cameroon in August, the nation of his father. He made his debut in a friendly against Uzbekistan and could be effective for the Indomitable Lions up front, whether from the start or from the bench.

Prediction

Behind Brazil, Cameroon will be striving for the second spot in Group G but alongside Serbia and Switzerland – who impressively topped qualifying groups involving Portugal and Italy respectively – the Indomitable Lions may well have their work cut out. Their recent history suggests they will struggle too – they have not progressed to the knockout-stages since the team of 1990 and Roger Milla’s famous goalscoring celebration. Knocked out in the group stage.
