Lineups are out for the final match of the day at the 2014 World Cup. Both Cameroon and Croatia suffered disappointing losses in their opening games, and will now play to keep their hopes of advancing alive.

Niko Kovač has made three changes from the lineup that lost to Brazil last week. Both Sime Vrsaljko and Mateo Kovacic have been dropped, in favor of Danijel Pranjić and Sammir respectively. Up front, Nikicia Jelavic is on the bench, replaced by Mario Manduzkic who returns from a one match red card suspension that kept him out of the opener.
