Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Stade Omnisport Paul Biya will host Friday’s World Cup qualifier between Cameroon and Malawi, the two teams who meet for the first time since October 2018. Back then the two sides played out a goalless draw at the Africa Cup of Nations, but the Cameroonians are seen as favourites to win this match. Liverpool defender Joel Matim has turned down yet another Cameroon call-up, but attackers Choupo-Moting and Toko Ekambi both made the cut.
Malawi, on the other hand, welcome Kieran Ngwenya of Aberdeen back to the squad, while the likes of Hassan Kajoke, Maxwell Gasten, William Thole, Rafiq Namwera, and Vitumbiko Kumwenda have been left out of the squad. Anyhow, Meck Mwase’s men are not regarded as good travelers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Cameroon’s party in Yaounde. In their last meeting in Cameroon the Indomitable Lions emerged triumphant.
Highlighted Player (Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting):
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is a Cameroonian footballer who plays for Schalke 04 as a winger. Choupo-Moting joined die Knappen in 2014, but he played for fellow German sides Mainz, Nurnberg and Hamburger in the past as well. He was part of FC St. Pauli during his youth career.
The Cameroonian international, who was born in Altona, Hamburg, represented the Indomitable Lions at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and he made the Cameroon 2014 World Cup squad as well. Choupo-Moting is well known for his speed and he often makes life difficult for the opposition defenders. His main position is left wing, but he is capable of playing as a centre forward as well.
Choupo-Moting scored six goals in 28 appearances for Schalke in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign, but many people believe that he was producing much better performances with Mainz. The Cameroonian attacker scored 10 goals in 32 league appearances for die Nullfunfer in the 2013/2014 season. Choupo-Moting, who was born on 23 Match, 1989, began his youth career at Teutonia 05.
