Cameroon continued their poor run at the FIFA World Cup with 14 games without a win following a 1-0 loss to group A opponents Mexico on Friday.

Oribe Peralta's effort a little over the hour mark (61minutes) gave the Mexicans a crucial win to night at the Estadio das Dunas in Natal.
Mexico are to face host Brazil, which defeated Croatia 3-1 in Thursday's opener, on June 17 in their second game at the Estadio Castelao in Fortaleza while Cameroon takes on Croatia on June 18 at the Arena Amazonia in Manaus.
The Indomitable Lions must win Croatia if they have any chance of progressing to the second round. The team only made it once pass the group stages when it reached the quarterfinals in 1990.
