World Cup favourites Brazil conclude their group-stage campaign with a fixture against Cameroon at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

The two sides had opposing starts to the tournament, with the Selecao sweeping aside Serbia and Cameroon falling to defeat against Switzerland.

But can Rigobert Song's Indomitable Lions upset the tournament favourites in their final Group G encounter?

When is the match?

The match between Brazil and Cameroon takes place at 7pm UK time on Friday, December 2 (10pm in Qatar and 2pm EST).

Where will it take place?

The game will be played in the Lusail Iconic Stadium, the largest stadium in Qatar. The 86,000 seater ground was inaugurated in September when it hosted the Lusail Super Cup. It will host 10 matches during the World Cup, including the final.

Brazil will be familiar with the ground, as it was the host stadium for their first match of the tournament against Serbia. This may afford them a slight advantage over Cameroon who have only played in the Al Janoub Stadium so far.

What TV channel is it on?

The match will be shown live on ITV. You can also stream it on ITVX.

Head-to-head record

Brazil and Cameroon have played each other six times – the first fixture taking place in the 1994 World Cup, and the most recent in an international friendly in 2018.

Brazil have won five and lost just one, with Cameroon's victory sole victory at the Confederations Cup in 2003 when they won 1-0 courtesy of a Samuel Eto'o strike.

What are they saying?

Cameroon coach Rigobert Song said he was proud of "little brother" Breel Embolo despite the Switzerland striker scoring the winning goal against his side in their World Cup Group G opener

Yaounde-born Embolo netted the winner against the country of his birth after 48 minutes but refused to celebrate as the Swiss claimed victory in a game in which they were second best in the first half, but much improved after the break.

Song was seen speaking to Embolo after the game and said he offered his congratulations.

"We know each other, he is my little brother," Song said. "We often speak to each other on the phone and I wanted to congratulate him. It is fair play to do so. Just because we are on different teams, it does not mean we are not still brothers."

Song added that despite plunging his side to a defeat, he was proud Embolo had scored a goal at the World Cup.

"He did not celebrate his goal, but this is all part of football," Song said. "I’m happy for him and proud of him. He is with the Swiss national team and I would have liked him to be on my side, but that is the way of life.

"For us the most important thing is how did we play on the pitch, what could we have done better, rather than worrying who was scoring goals against us."
