UPDATE: Unfortunately for Cameroon, things went exactly as planned in their matchup with Brazil: the home town team won 4-1, securing their place in the Round of 16.
Cameroon’s already been eliminated from Group A, leaving Brazil, Croatia and Mexico battling for the two spots in Group A. Brazil looks likely to best Cameroon in their match, and advance to the Round of 16 when they meet today at 4 PM ET (8 PM UTC). But anything is possible in the World Cup (just ask Spain), and Cameroon could make history with an epic upset of hometown team.
