World Cup 2022 LIVE: Brazil vs Cameroon latest score and updates from Group G as Gabriel Martinelli goes close

Brazil prepare reserve team to face Cameroon

Brazil close out their World Cup 2022 group stages by taking on Cameroon in the final match of Group G this evening.

The Selecao are already through to the last-16 following wins over Serbia and Switzerland yet are still trying to discover their best formation in the absence of Neymar.

Manager Tite is likely to make some changes this evening and give the fringe players in the squad more gametime.

Cameroon meanwhile will look to pull off another monumental upset at this tournament by beating Brazil to secure a place in the last-16. Their 3-3 draw with Serbia leaves them with a slender chance to get through but only if they defeat the five world champions.

Show latest update


Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

75 mins: There are just 15 minutes to go to see whether Brazil can make it three wins from three.

They look the more likely team to score but Cameroon created that great chance at the end of the first half and have the capabilities to threaten the South Americans.

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

72 mins: Chance! Marquinhos recovers the ball on the Cameroon byline and pulls it back to Martinelli on the left side of the box.

Martinelli lays it off to the front edge of the penalty area where Bruno Guimaraes stops the ball then lifts a shot well over the crossbar under pressure from Eric Choupo-Motin.

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

69 mins: Switzerland are leading Serbia 3-2 in the other Group G game meaning that they are back in second place as things stand. Even if Cameroon were to score now they wouldn’t qualify for the knockout rounds unless Serbia were to also get an equaliser.

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

66 mins: Brazil’s Everton Ribeiro shimmies his way into the Cameroon penalty area before getting hit with a heavy tackle from Enzo Ebosse.

It’s a cruncher that excites the Cameroon fans in the crowd.

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

63 mins: More changes and one each for Cameroon and Brazil. Bryan Mbeumo heads off for Karl Toko Ekambi who should provide a bit more impetus for the African side.

Gabriel Jesus meanwhile is replaced by Pedro.

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

60 mins: Cameroon goalkeeper Devis Epassy landed awkwardly as he made the save from Martinelli’s shot but he’s fine after rubbing his shoulder down.

The African side deal with the resultant corner easily enough.

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

56 mins: Save! Gabriel Martinelli looks hungry tonight. He’s given the ball on the left wing and carries it up the pitch before cutting inside and blasting a shot at goal that Devis Epassy tips over the crossbar!

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

54 mins: Alex Telles has gone down off the ball again and can’t continue. He looks shook up as he hobbles off the pitch to be replaced by Marquinhos. That may be his World Cup over and done with if his injury is a bad one.

Fred and Rodrygo also go off with Bruno Guimaraes and Everton Ribeiro brought on.

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

51 mins: Chance! Cameroon come within inches of opening the scoring. They work the ball around the edge of the box before Bryan Mbeumo slips a pass into the right side for Vincent Aboubakar.

He shoots on the spin and fizzes an effort mere inches wide of the far post!

Cameroon 0-0 Brazil

48 mins: There have been no changes in personnel from either side but Alex Telles is down for Brazil and needs some treatment following a heavy challenge.

The left back seems to be okay though and will play on for now.
