No Cameroon player scored more than two goals in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers (Eric Choupo-Moting, Samuel Eto'o & Jean II Makoun).
This is only the second ever meeting between these two countries; Mexico won the first clash 1-0 in a friendly in 1993.
Mexico boss Miguel Herrera has only taken charge of his country in two competitive games; the World Cup play-offs against New Zealand (9-3 on aggregate).
Cameroon's 17 previous World Cup goals have all been scored from inside the area (15 from open play, two penalties).
Oribe Peralta has scored eight goals in his last six competitive appearances for el Tricolor.
Mexico have never beaten an African team at a World Cup Finals tournament, losing one and drawing two of their three meetings against sides from that continent so far.
