The relatively inexperienced Devis Epassy is likely to continue with the responsibility in goal after the 3-3 draw against Serbia. Going forward, Vincent Aboubakar can expect to be named in the XI after scoring from the bench in the last outing.

On the other side is Brazil, the pre-tournament favorite to win it all. After winning in 2002, Brazil has made it to at least the quarterfinal in every World Cup since. In 2018, Brazil was knocked out by Belgium in the quarterfinal, and in the previous World Cup, they were handed an infamous 7-1 loss to Germany in the semifinals. This year's team boasts a roster full of the world’s top players.
