With the Netherlands already qualified for the last sixteen and Cameroon out of the tournament, pride is at stake for the Africans whilst the Dutch may rest some key players. The Dutch are always strong at any major championship and having qualified with ease for the tournament will be looking to push on towards the latter stages.
The Cameroon are the most successful African team in World Cup history but in recent years have failed to make a big impact despite having some big names in their ranks. They qualified reasonably well for the tournament with Samuel Etoo their main man up front and will be looking forward to taking on the Dutch.
Cameroon v Netherlands Match Odds
There are no surprises in the betting as the Netherlands take favouritism for the three points, at this stage the Dutch can be backed at odds-on to claim the win. The African side are not in with a great chance according to the odds at this stage but they are not without a chance and have the squad capable of picking up a point which looks good value.

Match Day Squads and Key Players
The Netherlands are jam packed with star names and will be hoping to call on the likes of Robin Van Persie and Dirk Kuyt for this crucial match.
Cameroon will not have the same size squad to pick from so it will be even more important for them to avoid any injuries and suspensions to their key players. Samuel Etoo and Geremi are the two experienced players for the African side and they will need to be in the starting eleven if they are to have a chance of upsetting the match odds.
