Brazil vs. Cameroon: Line ups
Brazil Head Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has kept faith with under fire duo Fred and Paulinho for his side's final Group A encounter against Cameroon at the Estádio Nacional de Brasília Mané Garrincha.
Of the two, Fred has received particularly strong criticism for his performances in Brazil’s opening matches, while Paulinho was singled out by Zico for the peripheral role he played against Mexico.
Despite this, Felipão is staying loyal to his preferred eleven, with Hulk, who missed the draw with Mexico through injury, replacing Ramires.
For Cameroon, Barcelona midfielder Alex Song is suspended, while Samuel Eto’o can only make the bench due to a persistent knee problem.
With those two unavailable, there are starts for Vincent Aboubakar and Landry N’Guémo, while Allan Nyom and Henri Bedimo come in for Aurélien Chedjou and Benoît Assou-Ekotto.
Brazil need a point to be guaranteed a place in the Round of 16.
