Home   /   All-or-nothing for Cameroon and Serbia

Serbia will be facing Group G rivals Cameroon on Monday morning at Al-Janoub Stadium, with both teams needing the win just as desperately. Losing could mean dropping out of the competition for both. 

While Cameroon were outplayed by Switzerland in their opening game, Serbia were beaten 2-0 by favourites Brazil despite putting up a great fight, especially in the first 60 minutes.   

In light of their hard fight against Brazil, Serbia manager Dragan Stojković shared his annoyance with the fact that Serbian top scorer Aleksandar Mitrović was clearly not fully fit; same going for Filip Kostić and Dušan Vlahović. The latter is still expected to make the starting-11 for the Orlovi, as well as the Milinković-Savić brothers and captain Dušan Tadić.  

The Eagles will be hoping for a win against Cameroon on Monday so they can secure a place in the competition, at least for a bit longer.

Cameroon’s World Cup dreams are also still very much alive, especially if they manage to beat Dragan Stojković’s Eagles.  

Cameroon manager Rigobert Song will most likely count on Bayern Munich’s Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting again at the front. Bryan Mbeumo and Karl Toko Ekambi are also almost guaranteed starters. Swansea City’s Olivier Ntcham has been ruled out of Cameroon’s remaining group clashes with an injury. Vincent Aboubakar is expected to start as a substitute.  

All in or nothing: who will be saying their goodbyes to the World Cup today – Cameroon or Serbia?
