Report: Brazil media share whether Martinelli and Jesus are going to start vs Cameroon in their next game

Arsenal duo Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli are set for their first starts of the World Cup in Brazil’s final group match.

Brazil have won both their pool games so far without conceding a goal, which has ensured qualification for the next round with a game to spare.

Next up is a clash with Cameroon, which looks set to provide manager Tite with an opportunity to rotate his squad.

Brazilian outlet Globo claim that he is set to make wholesale changes for the match on Friday, with the Gunners duo coming in.

Jesus and Martinelli to start against Cameroon

Tottenham forward Richarlison has been starting up front, with Jesus coming off the bench in both World Cup games so far.

Jesus is set to be the main man against a Cameroon side coming into the game on the back of conceding three times against Serbia on Monday.

Martinelli is lined up to play on the left wing, with he and Jesus potentially recapturing the link-up which has helped drive Arsenal to the top of the Premier League.

There will be changes all over the pitch for Brazil, who have already seen Neymar and Danilo go down with injuries in the first game which kept them out of the second.

There is no point in them taking any risks and the strength of their squad means they will still put out a formidable team capable of beating Cameroon comfortably.

The decision could give Arsenal fans extra reason to keep an eye on the game, which rounds off the group stages before the knockout rounds get underway the following day.
