In the Cameroon Vs Brazil game, Brazil came into the game only needing a draw to top the group and could even afford to lose and still top the group going into the knockout stages as long as Switzerland failed to beat Serbia.

The game begun with not many expecting an upset, as Brazil has world-renowned stars and with Brazil having already qualified for the knockout stages of the tournament. On the other hand, Cameroon had put in a valiant effort against Serbia coming from 3-1 down to tie the game at 3-3.

The draw meant that if Switzerland beat Serbia then Cameroon were out of the Knockout stages.

Brazil were also expected to rotate their lineup which meant that strikers like Neymar with injuries would not be playing.

Brazil came into the World Cup as one of the teams with great squad depth and they were the only team in their group who managed not to concede shorts on target with zero shorts on target against Serbia and Switzerland and winning both games to nil.
