World Cup Qualifier Preview
Cameroon will come into this fixture against Mozambique on Friday evening knowing that only a win will be good enough in their hopes to reach Qatar next year. Mozambique may have also not given up on their chances to reach the World Cup finals either, as Group D is a very open group.
It would be a great disappointment for Cameroon if they aren’t able to reach the World Cup finals next year, as they have appeared at the elite competition on seven previous occasions. They do face a fight if they are to reach the finals next year though, as they are currently in second place in Group D, a point behind the Ivory Coast.
They also need to contend with Malawi, who are on the same number of points. Cameroon were handed a first defeat in qualification last time out, as they were beaten by the Ivory Coast.
Mozambique aren’t just in Group D to make up the numbers, and will be aware that a win on Friday could see them move up to second in the group depending on the other results. They have picked up just one point so far, but have conceded just once in their two games, which is the joint-best defensive record in the group.
Their draw in the group came on matchday one, as they held on to a 0-0 draw against the Ivory Coast. However, they were unable to use that performance to gain momentum in the end, as they were beaten by Malawi 1-0 in their following game.
