With Brazil and Serbia matching up in the other clash of this group, a loss for either of these sides could threaten to end their campaign early.

They enter the tournament in differing form. Although the Swiss lost their World Cup warmup to Ghana, they do come in on the back of three successive competitive-match wins, with two of those coming against top-10 FIFA ranked nations.

Murat Yakin's side beat Portugal 1-0 in June, before winning 2-1 away in Spain in September in the UEFA Nations League.

The same can't be said for Cameroon, who enter the action in Qatar on the back of four winless international outings, the last two of which saw them draw 1-1, with both Jamaica and Panama in underwhelming pre-tournament friendlies.

Team News:

Switzerland:

Yann Sommer may not be at his sharpest this tournament, having only just recovered from an injury he sustained back in October.

The Borussia Monchengladbach star did play in the 2-0 defeat to Ghana on Thursday, however, as did Fabian Schar, Granit Xhaka, Denis Zakaria and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Cameroon:

Napoli star Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa is taking a knock into the tournament, but as one of Cameroon's star players he may be risked even if not at 100% sharpness.
