You can follow the live action of the last game of the group G between Cameroon and Brazil on As.com.

Brazil go into the final match of Group G already qualified for the next round, and as such the whispers are that manager Tite will look to swap out his superstars from the usual starting XI and replace them with... more superstars. It was a 1-0 win over Switzerland that sealed the deal for the South Americans - thanks to a Casemiro cannonball - and finally we will be able to see the squad stretch its wings and we can measure the full capacity of the talent pool that Tite has at his disposal.

Team news

As we have seen, Alex Sandro, Danilo and Neymar have all fallen to injury, so we will naturally expect to see changes in these positions. Apart from the players in the doctor’s waiting room, suggestions have floated around that Tite is inclined to change his eleven drastically in order to allow the players that have played in both the 2-0 win against Serbia and the victory over Switzerland to have some well-earned rest.

Brasil confirmed starting lineup (4-2-3-1)

Ederson

Dani Alves, Militão, Bremer, Telles;

Fabinho, Fred;

Rodrygo, Martinelli, Antony;

Gabriel Jesus

  • Who to watch: Rodrygo

The Real Madrid winger has taken advantage of every minute he has played for the Spanish club, and he looks to be doing the same for his country. Ancelotti has noticed that the 21 year-old functions well in the middle channel of the pitch, so Tite used him in the same way against Switzerland to great effect. He set up the winner with an audacious heel flick and the bouncing ball was smashed into the corner by ex-teammate Casemiro. If he plays, don’t expect him to stick to his position, he’ll run everywhere he needs to be, communicating with everyone and connecting play like a busy neurone.
