The loser of this match will still have no points and will have no chance to advance to the knockout phase. Even if these teams play to a draw it will be an uphill battle for each team to advance out of the group.
In their opening round matches on June 14th Denmark lost to Holland 2-0 and Cameroon lost to Japan 1-0.
Even though Cameroon won the time of possession battle against Japan (57% to 43%) and had more shots (9-3) Cameroon could not score. In the match Cameroon had a few solid chances to score, but could not capitalize.
Inter Milan star Samuel Eto'o was frustrated for most of the match and he will have to play well in this match and generate some scoring chances.
Cameroon has a solid offense led by Eto’o and they will have to figure out how to score on a good Denmark defense and G Thomas Sorensen, who had a great match against Holland.
Even though Denmark was dominated by Holland in the time of possession battle (66% to 34%) they played good defense and really only gave up one goal, as the first one they gave up was on an own goal.
Denmark does not have a dynamic offense and that really showed in the match against the Dutch so they may have to look to score off the counter-attack.
Denmark is in a big slump, as they not only lost their opening World Cup match, but they lost their last three friendly matches. They have had no rhythm in their last few matches, especially on offense, and they need to find some in this match or their World Cup may be over. In their last four matches the Danes have not scored.
Cameroon is the highest ranked team from Africa and they will play better in this match against a slumping Denmark squad and win taking an important three points.
