Head to Head Matches
06/26/1998 Chile 1:1 Cameroon
Led by manager Hugo Broos, Cameroon have put up good fights after going through a major generation changeover. As true manifestations of these improvements, the team has taken the glory of 2017 African Cup of Nations title.
To date, the team is a composite of young and relatively talented footballers who are set to welcome Chile by posing dangerous stunts which might help them potentially land the top level of Group B.
In the last 17 matches that Chile have undergone, the team lost four games already—that is twice the number of losses that Cameroon have had. The South American nation for a long time has not won any major tournament titles until their two successive wins in Copa America back in 2015 and 2016.
Nevertheless, as Juan Antonio Pizzi’s men travel to Russia, they are likely to uphold their win attitude with the help of Alexis Sanchez who remains to be the top scorer of the national club. Also, in the absence of captain Claudio Bravo, Johnny Herrera is likely to cover for him.
Given that the match is set to unfold at a fresh environment in Moscow, relying on home turf advantage might be inconvenient for hosting nation, Cameroon. And that being said, Chile will aim to use this as a tool to penetrate the fairly solid defenses of Cameroon.
