England vs Cameroon Soccer Betting Tips and Predictions 6/23/2019
Women's World Cup
Sunday, June 23, 2019
Stade du Hainaut
England will play at Stade du Hainaut when they take on Cameroon on Sunday, June 23, 2019 in a Women's World Cup matchup. The opening line for this game has England at -899 and Cameroon at +1206. The line on the game being a draw has been set at +597.
Number three ranked England will be going up against Cameroon on Sunday afternoon in the Round of 16 at the Women's World Cup. England had a pretty easy time in Group D play, picking up wins over Japan, Argentina, and Scotland. The Cameroonians only picked up three points from their three Group E games, but they did play pretty well against some tough competition. The English will be big favorites going into this match, but Cameroon's counterattack could end up causing them some problems.
England came into the World Cup being lauded for its offensive play, but its defense is what really stuck out during the group stages. Impressively, the English only gave up a total of one goal during those three matches, which includes games against good offensive teams in Japan and Argentina. Cameroon could end up causing them some problems with their speed, but it would be a pretty big shock if they lost this one.

Key Players England:
Ellen White - England's top forward was impressive during the group stages, picking up a team-high three goals and consistently causing problems for opposing defenses. She now has 32 goals through her first 85 national team appearances. England is going up against a pretty weak Cameroonian defense in this match, so expect White to have a big impact on the game.
Jill Scott - The veteran midfielder deserves a lot of credit for England's solid defensive performances during the group stages. She plays right in the heart of that midfielder, protecting the back line and getting the offense moving forward when she gets possession of the ball. Scott is also a solid offensive contributor, picking up three goals from the team's three qualification matches.
Most people will not give Cameroon a chance going into this match, but if they can play well defensively like they did in that 1-0 loss to Canada they could pull off the upset. They'll happily let England control the majority of the possession during the match, and they will look to get some good chances going the other way on the counterattack.
Key Players Cameroon:
Ajara Nchout - No one was talking about Nchout coming into the World Cup, but a lot of people have taken notice now. The 26-year-old forward scored the two biggest goals of her life against New Zealand last week, singlehandedly lifting her nation into the Round of 16. You can be sure that England took notice, too, and will attempt to deny her the ball every time Cameroon takes possession.
Estelle Johnson - Johnson is 30 years old and has only played in three games for her country so far, but she is arguably the most important defender on this Cameroonian side. This will be the toughest test of her life as she is going up against an extremely talented English team, so she will need to stay composed and do a good job marking England's forwards if Cameroon is going to have any chance to win this match.
