Switzerland will face off Cameroon in their FIFA World Cup opening game on Thursday. Both teams are placed in Group G of FIFA WC, which has been considered as 'group of death'. Apart from Switzerland and Cameroon, Group G consists of Brazil and Serbia. While the Neymar-led Brazil is expected to take the top spot, the battle for the second spot is rather quiet tricky considering all the three remaining teams have some quality players. 

While Switzerland qualified automatically from UEFA qualifying, Cameroon entered the Qatar World Cup via a two-legged play-off with Algeria. Notably, Switzerland suffered a 2-0 defeat against Ghana in a friendly. Meanwhile, Cameroon is coming into this game after playing a draw against Panama in friendlies.
