Cameroon v Croatia Betting
2014 World Cup - Group A - Cameroon 0 - 4 Croatia
18th June - KO: 11pm BST -
Cameroon and Croatia continued their 2014 World Cup campaigns when they met in the steamy surroundings of Manaus on Wednesday 18th June. A 4-0 win for Croatia ensured that Cameroon can no longer qualify for the second round.
Both teams will be desperate for the three points having lost their first games of the tournament, Cameroon going down 1-0 to Mexico on Friday whilst Croatia were dealt a rough time by the officials in their 3-1 defeat to Brazil on the opening night of the tournament.
Conditions could favour the African nation Cameroon, who booked their place at the World Cup finals in style by winning their qualifying group before humbling Tunisia 4-1 in the African play-off match. They come up against a Croatia side who failed to impress in qualifying for these finals.
The bookmakers have priced Croatia up as favourites for their clash with Cameroon on 18th June and it is likely to be a huge fixture in deciding who qualifies from Group A.

Cameroon v Croatia Odds
Head to Head
- Cameroon and Croatia meet for the first time at the 2014 World Cup
Alexandre Song - The former Arsenal midfielder has the quality to dominate midfields and his clash with the artistry of the Croatian midfielders could decide the outcome of this match. Song will be relied upon to nullify Luka Modric and co. and it should make for an intriguing battle.
Mario Mandzukic - The presence of a quality striker is a major boon for any nation at the World Cup finals and Mandzukic will carry the hopes of Croatia. On his day, Mandzukic can terrify any defence in the world and his country will be hoping that he is on his game in Brazil.
