Cameroon and Denmark World Cup form

Cameroon 0-1 Japan
39m Keisuke Honda (Jap)

WCI Rating: 3.5
1st half: 1.5
2nd half: 2.0

Cameroon were very disappointing against the Japanese and they failed to rise to the occasion and never applied themselves to the required intensity level of a World Cup.

Denmark 0-2 Netherlands
46m S. Poulson Own Goal (Neth)
85m D. Kuty (Neth)

WCI Rating: 5.5
1st half: 2.5
2nd half: 3.0

Denmark were solid against the Dutch and while they created a couple of good chances they never offered much offensive potency.

Cameroon vs Denmark Preview

Cameroon will be looking for a better showing than their ordinary opening effort and expect them to perform much more effectively here.

Denmark held out the Dutch for long periods and would have been happy with their efforts from that perspective and will appreciate the drop in class against Cameroon as opposed to the Netherlands.

Cameroon vs Denmark Match Prediction

Both sides failed to earn points in their opening game making the win very important here for both Cameroon and Denmark.

Denmark are very solid defensively but up front they lack offensive firepower which they are going to need if they want to win this game.

Cameroon has the attacking talent to trouble the Danes but all in all this very much has the makings of a draw, either 0-0 or 1-1 as we see it.
