Is Cameroon vs Algeria on TV? Channel, live stream free, kick-off time, team news for TODAY’S World Cup play-off game

RIYAD MAHREZ and Algeria are aiming to return to the World Cup as they face Cameroon over two legs.

The Fennec Foxes have been an enigma in recent years as they missed out on the 2018 World Cup, but then won the Africa Cup of Nations in 2019 and the Fifa Arab Cup in December 2021.

However they followed these triumphs up with a wretched Afcon in which they came bottom of a group containing Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone and Equatorial Guinea.

2017 Afcon champions Cameroon also failed to qualify for the last World Cup and will be looking to put things right this time around.

The Indomitable Lions were hosts of this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, in which they reached the semi-final before being knocked out on penalties by Egypt and Mo Salah.

That defeat saw manager Toni Conceicao sacked, with former West Ham and Liverpool star Rigobert Song stepping up from the Under-23s to take charge of these two crucial games.

But their preparations for this match have been rocked by goalkeeper Andre Onana being involved in a car crash.

What time does Cameroon vs Algeria kick off?

  • Cameroon vs Algeria kicks off at 5pm UK time – 6pm in both Cameroon and Algeria.
  • It takes place at the Japoma Stadium, Douala.
  • The sides last met in 2017 when Cameroon picked up a 2-0 win in World Cup qualifying.
