International Friendly: Portugal vs. Cameroon Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Portugal vs. Cameroon Live Stream: The purpose of this warm-up game between third-ranked Portugal and 19-placed Cameroon is to build confidence for their players ahead of the trip to the first ever Africa-hosted World Cup.
The Selecçao das Quinas have Cristiano Ronaldo on their side but they stumbled to a goalless draw with island country Cape Verde last week so they need to improve their offense if they hope to have any success in Group G.
CR9 has practically done it all: won the Champions League with his former team Manchester United, been named World Player of the Year, but he’s never gotten the job done for his country. Portugal failed to make an impression against their European rivals during qualifying, but they are still one of the most feared teams in the World Cup.
Meanwhile, Cameroon has selected Inter Milan’s Samuel Eto’o as its captain despite his threat to walk away from the tournament. The 29-year-old striker is upset with criticism from football great Roger Milla.
Milla, who led the Indomitable Lions to the quarter-finals in the 1990 World Cup in Italy, said that Eto’o had “brought lots to Barca and Inter but never anything to the Cameroon national team.”
The match kicks-of at 20:30 CET (2:30 p.m. ET).
UPDATE: Raul Meireles scored a brace to help the Seleccao to a 3-1 victory over Cameroon, which played most of the game with 10 players after Eto’o was sent off.
