Group E gets underway with Japan playing the strong African team Cameroon in what should be a tight affair, the match will take place at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein with both sides looking for the win. Cameroon are the stronger side on paper and they have qualified for the World Cup on more occasions than any other African team, they have some experienced players who play in Europe so will be looking to take out the Japanese.
Both of theses sides had very little trouble in qualification with the Japanese actually the first team to book their place in South Africa. They are a muched improved team in recent years as their qualification showed and they will not fear their African opponents despite looking the slightly weaker side as far as most pundits are concerned

Team News and Form
Cameroon had a decent African cup of Nations without setting the world alight and they will want to improve for the World Cup, they will know that if they can pick up a win here then they will be on their way to the last 16. The Netherlands are also in Group E and neither side will want to be in a position where they have to pick up a result against the Dutch, that makes this tie all the more important.
The team news for this Group E match at the Free State Stadium will be of interest to punters and all of the big news for both the Cameroon and Japan will be made available. Cameroon will be looking towards Samuel Etoo as their main man, the Inter Milan Striker is one of the Worlds bets and he will Captain the side.
The two sides have met on two occasions with the Japanese perhaps surprisingly holding the upper hand so far. The last meeting came in 2007, when Japan were the victors 2-0 and they will be hoping to repeat that score in this important match. the other meeting was a scoreless draw so Cameroon will be hoping for their first ever win over Japan.
The bookies are backing the Africans to claim the win but on form they may have it tougher than the bookmakers are currently suggesting.
