Mexico come into this game and World cup with somewhat tempered expectations as the Mexicans had a rough qualifying campaign. Manager Miguel Herrera is trying to get the right mix on the field and it has proven quite tough to do. Star man Javier Hernandez will lead the line up front and with Herrera, Dos Santos and Calcedo all providing enough support to give Cameroon plenty of problems at the back. While this is a talented squad , they do not appear to be playing well as a team and I think that this is not agood situation for a team to come into a tournament.
Cameroon will be relying on veteran striker Samuel Eto and youngster Choupu Moting to fire them to victory in this group. Cameroon are a very physical side, tough and hard working. With Alex Song, Stephane Mbia and Eto there is quality and experience. Managed by German Volker Fink , Cameroon will be well drilled both defensively and at set pieces. I think that the Cameroonians can get some joy here against Mexico.

Another game with stronger offences than defences and I will taking the overs here as I think Eto, Hernandez and Choupo Moting will find joy against the opposition defence. I am taking the overs. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
