Mexico and Cameroon will play their first World Cup 2014 Group A game at the Estádio das Dunas on Friday.
Mexico coach Miguel Herrera will leave Manchester United striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez on the bench when they face the Indomitable Lions.
Herrera has opted for the duo of Guillermo Dos Santos and Oribe Peralta to start in attack for the Group A encounter in Natal.
Mexico will hope to get a good start and will hope to pick up a win over the Africans as they try to qualify for the knock-out round for the first time in the past five tournaments.
Cameroon on the other hand will try and put all their problems behind them as they open their World Cup account, after threatening to refuse to board the plane to Brazil due to a row over bonuses.
Volker Finke's squad will be led by their inspirational skipper Samuel Eto'o, who will be appearing at the tournament for the fourth time.
Here's how they line-up:
Mexico XI: Ochoa; Rodriguez, Marquez, Aguilar, Layun; Herrera, Vázquez, Dos Santos, Moreno, Guardado, Peralta
Cameroon XI: Itandje; Assou-Ekotto, N'Koulou, Djeugoué; Song, Moukandjo, Choupo-Moting, Chedjou, Mbia, Enoh; Eto'o
