How to watch Cameroon vs Zambia in CAF World Cup 2018 qualifying: start time, TV schedule, and live stream

All games are important in the final stage of CAF World Cup qualifying, but home games are especially so: Cameroon needs a win in this one.

Cameroon is in one of the tougher World Cup qualifying groups imaginable: CAF sent five teams to the last World Cup, and three of them - Algeria, Nigeria, and the Indomitable Lions - are in Group B of the final round of qualifying for Russia 2018. Only one will advance.

The presumptive makeweight in Group B is Zambia, which has never been to a World Cup. But the Chipolopolo did win the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations - so there really isn't a true pushover in the group.

Still, if Cameroon is to make it to Russia it is assumed it will need to pick up maximum points against Zambia and hope for the best against the more testing opponents in the group. So this is something of a must-win match for the Lions.

Cameroon's preparations have been a little disrupted by injury. Forwards Karl Toko Ekambi and Eric Choupo-Moting are hurt and have been replaced by Christian Bassogog and Frank Boya. Defender Henri Bedimo is also injured.

The adjustments to the squad may move Anatole Abang a little further up the depth chart. The New York Red Bullsexiled forward is not expected to start against Zambia, but his chances of coming off the bench may have improved with two senior attacking players on the injury list.
