[UNDER-20 WORLD CUP] The USA faces 2009 African Youth Championship runner-up Cameroon in their second game at the Under-20 World Cup. The Young Lions, 2-0, winner over South Korea on Saturday, will be favored, but the USA has had success against them.

(TV: ESPN2, Galavision, live, 12:40 pm ET.)

Cameroon is making is first appearance at the Under-20 World Cup since 1999 when Sigi Schmid's USA beat them, 3-1, on a pair of Taylor Twellman goals to advance to the second round.

Cameroon features 15 foreign-based players spread over seven countries, including Spanish club Real Mallorca's Etienne Eto'o, who is the younger brother of Cameroon star Samuel Eto'o, who himself moved to Spain as a teenager.

Cameroon will clinch at least a wild-card berth in the second round with a win. The USA will not be eliminated with a loss despite having opened with a 3-0 loss to Germany. It could win its third game against South Korea and possibly qualify as one of the four best third-place teams.
