Cameroon and Denmark face off in their second round of matches in Group E for what is a tight looking match both on and off the pitch with the bookmakers struggling to split the two. This should be an even match with a strong team from Africa taking on a strong looking Danish team from Europe. This could be a crucial match as the winner of this one will be in the box seat to go through to the knock-out stage with group favourites the Netherlands. The Dutch look strong and are most peoples fancy to top the group leaving these two as the main protagonists for that second berth meaning this one could hardly be more important.
The Danes surprised some with the ease of their qualification through to the World Cup and they are more than capable of knocking over the strong African side. Cameroon are traditionally one of the stronger teams from Africa and they are a particularly strong outfit as they have shown over the years, Samuel Etoo is the main man for the team and he will need to fit and firing if they are to realise their potential.

Latest Team News
These are two evenly matched squads so any injuries or suspensions to either squad will have a big impact on the result of this crucial match. Denmark will need their experienced players to stand up and be counted, they are a strong physical side that will be difficult to break down as their opponents in qualification found out to their cost.
Cameroon are a similar team as the Danes, they rely on strength and speed to be their key factor in any match and will be hoping to wear down the Danes over 90 minutes. We will be following both camps very closely in the build up to this one to watch for the latest team news including any injuries and suspensions that may affect the squads.
The result of this one will have a big bearing on the outcome of Group E and to be honest we are finding it difficult to pick a winner here, with that in mind then the draw has to be considered very closely by all punters. One key form fact is that this will be the Danes 4th World Cup and at each of the past three in 1986,1998 and 2002 they have at least made it through to the last 16.
Cameroon in contrast have made it through the group stages just once so far in their five attempts and that was their famous run to the Quarter-Finals in 1990, they seem to have flattered to deceive since then. The current crop will be eager to put that right and a win against Denmark will be important if they have their sights on the knock-out stages.
