Cameroon is set to play Brazil in a friendly tonight, a game that has been widely anticipated around the continent.

The Indomitable Lions game against the Selecao will be staged at the Stadium MK in Buckinghamshire, England.

Cameroon is scheduled to host the 2019 African Cup of Nations, the first that will see 24 teams participate, eight more than the previous editions.

The Central African side’s clash with Brazil will be their second game against an opponent from outside the continent in 2018, having played Kuwait in March.

The Indomitable Lions missed the FIFA World Cup in June, though they won the 2017 AFCON hosted by Gabon.

Brazil come into the game high on confidence having won all the five games they have played since the World Cup where they were beaten in the quarter final stage by Belgium.

The Selecao’s last game was a 1-0 win against fellow South American side Uruguay.

Cameroon on the other hand has won only one in its last five games, with the latest result being a 2-0 loss to Morocco in the AFCON qualifiers.

The Cameroon vs Brazil game will kick-off at 1930GMT.
