There is no room for mistake in Group D for Cameroon, who are looking to chase Cote d’Ivoire for a spot in the next round of the World Cup. Both great nations will meet in a final showdown on the last day next week.
Preview of World Cup qualifiers
Cameroon will know that there is still a huge amount of work on their hands if they want to reach the next qualifying round. They will have to somehow overcome the Ivory Coast in the next two days or face the prospect of losing the World Cup next year.
Cameroon are currently in second place in the group, having collected nine points from their four games. The Ivory Coast leads the group with a points advantage. Cameroon have scored seven goals in qualifying up to this point, with the only defeat coming to the team at the top of the table. They have won their last two victories against Mozambique, with the last winning away 1-0. Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjul scored the winning goal in the previous match with 20 minutes remaining.
Malawi are already eliminated from contention for the next round, which means they will play only out of pride in Group D over the next two days. They have only achieved one group win so far and have been beaten on three occasions.
Malawi have suffered consecutive losses in their last two games, but could have taken some confidence from the 2-1 defeat they suffered against Ivory Coast in their last match. It was a combative performance by Malawi, and they scored through Khuda Muyaba. However, the hosts won the match in the final half hour.
Malawi vs Cameroon head to head
