Cameroon vs. Tunisia, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

Jamie McDonald

Cameroon and Tunisia's World Cup playoff is finely poised heading into Sunday's second leg, with the tie still goalless.

By Sunday evening we'll know whether Cameroon or Tunisia will be heading to Brazil 2014, as the two sides face off in the second leg of their African playoff. The first game ended goalless -- largely thanks to the work of Cameroon keeper Charles Itandje -- and Tunisia are firm underdogs as they head south for the reverse fixture.

Tunisia have appeared in four World Cups in their history, with the last coming seven years ago at Germany 2006. Their star players include Stuttgart defender and captain Karim Haggui and new Marseille attacker Saber Khelifa, though they're relatively short on household names when compared to their Cameroonian opponents.

Chelsea's Samuel Eto'o will likely spearhead the Cameroon attack alongside Fenerbahçe's Pierre Webó, while Queens Park Rangers' full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto has been recalled alongside Sevilla midfielder Stéphane Mbia, who has recovered from a toe injury which kept him out of the first leg.

Projected lineups

Cameroon: Charles Itandje; Dany Nounkeu, Nicolas N'Koulou, Aurélien Chedjou, Allan Nyom; Eyong Enoh, Joël Matip, Alexandre Song; Jean Makoun; Samuel Eto'o, Pierre Webó.

Tunisia: Moez Ben Cherifia; Yassin Mikari, Syam Ben Youssef, Karim Haggui, Sameh Derbali; Wissem Ben Yahia, Hocine Ragued; Saber Khelifa, Yassine Chikhaoui, Sami Allagui; Amine Chermiti.
